Condo assoc. are not going to put up with 2 large dogs. And if by chance you do find one, do you really want to be running them down the hallway, into the elevator, then to an area they can "go" in 3 or 4 times a day? On top of that, your neighbors will hate you and blame your dogs for all kinds of things.
My friends have an older Y-lab and it's been a real pain living in a condo. They live in an upscale condo and once when their Lab was sick, and she had to go, it was all the way down the hallway and in the elevator, not a good thing when the neighbors opened their door! lol
When you factor in those high HOA fees and the MUCH better loan terms borrowers can get on a home, look at buying a house with a fenced backyard where all you have to do is open the door!

There are a number of Condos that allow large dogs. Ofcourse that limits where you can look to buy. Are you looking exclusively in Sarasota and Bradenton? My niece has a Bull Mastiff - pretty big and heavy and she rents. So I am sure what you are asking is possible.
I work with dedicated agents in and around the Sarasota area. I would be happy to refer you to one of them.
Work with a dedicated agent.
There are very few complexes in Sarasota that allow for pets let alone big dogs. You may also encounter a breed restriction.

While most condos will make allowances for the number of pets or for sizes over 25 lbs, you may have a problem finding a condo that will make an exception for a dog that size.
David Barr, Broker Associate
There are a number of different places that will allow your pets that are condo style properties. Which ones that are available would depend on your price levels.
