Yes there are gated communities that do allow pets. If you are ready to buy a property contact your REALTOR and explain to him/her what exactly you are looking for, him/her will be able to better assist you in showing you properties that will allow you to keep your dog, according to the HOA.

It depends on the HOA rules & regulations. Your agent will be able to obtain a copy for you to review. You should do this anyway . In Florida, you have three days after acceptance to review the condo docs.

I live in an area that is highly HOA governed, many of the them gated neighborhoods and have yet to see one of them dictate whether an owner can have a pet, let alone the size of the pet. However there are many property insurers who are limiting coverage for certain types of dogs. To be on the safe side request a copy of the HOA CC&Rs prior to making an offer on a property.

Some gated communities are pet friendly, find out if there are any restrictions first. Some times they will allow a small pet.

Best of Luck!

Some allow pets, some don't. Your Realtor should be able to tell you if the community you are interested in allows pets.
