They usually try to a good job at it, but remember all residents know about the rules and they pay attention to who of their neighbors has a pet or many pets they should not be having, it will never stay a secret and could be
costly in various ways..... Not sure why you asked do you have a situation and you wonder what to recommend.
The rules are very very different, for each HOA and or building.... some allow cats but no dogs, some only dogs no cats, weight limit, number of pet limit etc. etc. and many many times NO pets at all.....
Anyone buying in a building with an HOA should make sure what is acceptable and what is not, just to make the right decision, their rules may exclude the buyers or renters.
