==>> IMO, "in" is the *key* word there, Mark.  It's when the pets go
*outdoors* that they dig, poop, pee on trees, trample, bark, chase birds, jump
up, and do whatever else comes naturally. In Commonweal, we plan clustered
housing; so yards will be small, and/or adjacent.

I love animals, but have my doubts about how Commonweal will find a 
satisfactory pet guideline, when our time comes.  I love gardens,grass, birds,
trees, and quiet, too.  *Indoor* pets don't threaten these, but outdoor
dogs and cats do.  A friend uses an electronic collar on her dog.  This, to
me, is very considerate and it lets the dog run and play.  Yes, the dog got
*one* jolt; but immediately learned.  It's debatable, but I can live with that, 
if it means the person can own a dog. (Initial investment for "fence," too).
