We had a committee that worked on pet rules for months, but they were not able to agree on what they should be. Rather than prolong this agony, we decided to simply quote the county rules that would be in effect regardless of whether we had our own rules. If someone has a problem with a neighbor's pet, they need to go through the county complaint process, just like anyone else in the county has to do. Therefore, an infraction is whatever the county says it is!

Here FWIW is what we have. PETS. After a long struggle to develop our own pet rules, we decided to include our county animal regulations verbatim. They include: Infractions: Animal Noise: For any person(s) to own any animal which by its barking, howling, baying, squealing, crowing, crying, bleating, screeching, or making any other noise by its volume or frequency unreasonably disturbs or interferes with the peace of any person(s) for more than fifteen minutes in any one-hour period of any day, and is documented by three or more separate episodes of such noise in a sequential seven-day period. The burden is upon the owner of such animal(s) to maintain quiet.. [KCC 7.14.030 Infractions (3)] KIDS RULES. They include: Be Courteous During Meals: ... Create a quiet dining atmosphere free from running, yelling, piano and TV noise. FACILITY USE. We have a Facilities Use Agreement which we use for private events in our common house. This one addresses noise: Facilities Cleanup . When leaving, please be respectful of neighbors by keeping noise to a minimum. MODEL LEASE AGREEMENT: Since we have some resident-owned rental units, we have a model lease, which most of our landlords use. It includes this noise provision: Tenant's family and guests shall at all times maintain order in the Premises and at all places on the Premises, and shall not make or permit any loud or improper noises, or otherwise disturb other residents; (I have posted our home businesses requirements separately).
