Recently, I was trying to help a couple locate a Naples home. Doesn’t sound that complicated until I discovered they have a 90-pound Doberman.


Big dogs can be a big deal in many communities. Some communities won’t allow certain breeds that have the stigma of being “more aggressive,” while others limit the size of the animal to how much the dog weighs.

If you’re looking for a Naples home or condo and you have a big dog, here is a list of Naples communities that allow larger furry friends:
