Dogs on Galt Ocean

Asked by Kelly, Fort Lauderdale, FL Tue Apr 14, 2009

I live on Galt Ocean Drive. Love my direct ocean view but my condo does not allow dogs (pets of any kind/size). Is there anything I can do to change their minds? Alternatively, are there any Galt Ocean condos that allow dogs? I see several walking the street/beach. Thanks! Kelly

Kelly,

I agree with Angela - I have seen condos go pet-less, but never reverse.

There are several buildings on the Galt that allow pets. And even when as condo does vote to turn pet-less (doesn’t happen to often though), existing pets are typically grandfathered in. That has led some dogs and cats I know of to develop near-miraculous lifespans of 25 years or more.

All the best,

Most older buildings in Fort Lauderdale don't allow dogs. They were built at a time when the market was middle aged people planning for retirement, and the developers thought that a no pet policy would attract more buyers who were petless. Today of course we know that pets are good for people of all ages.

Hi Kelly: I'm not optimistic that you'll be able to change the condo association's mind on pets. However, there are a few buildings on Galt Ocean that allow dogs - it depends on the size your dog. They usually impose a weight limit, some impose none. Playa Del Mar will accept dogs up to 20lbs. L'Hermitage and L'Ambience and Ocean Manor also accept pets.

I hope this helps!
