When we arrived here in April, we moved on the support site. Almost every day, there was a dog loose in our stair well. I called Security and they told me they did not deal with these issues and to bang on doors to find the owner. I asked them if they seriously wanted ME to bang on every door in the building and was told yes. So, if that dog bit someone was it now my fault for not banging on all the doors as instructed by Security? We are now in a different building, twice I have found dog urine in the hall way, once I cleaned it. The second time I left it to see what would happen, nobody touched it until the cleaning people came a few days later. Many days, dogs are barking all day, and I mean all day. Recently, a dog barked over the entire weekend, so I called housing. I was told to call Security, after my experience last time, why bother? Since day one I have pick up more than my dogs poop, and it gets old. They need to do something without punishing the good pet owners, enforcing the existing rules would be a great start. Owning a dog on the support site could NOT be more convenient as there are plenty of places to walk and you can't go 50 yards in any direction without finding a pet station with bags!
For what it is worth, I have lived on the support site before, we left in 2007, when they only allowed two cats per resident. As a pet owner with a dog now, I can say the support site is NOT a better place because of this change, it is largely due to the irresponsible owners. Many of the existing rules, like dog and cat stickers, breeds allowed, barking, etc., are no longer enforced. I hope they do tighten this up or it's going to be a long three years.
