How many dogs are allowed per household in Las Vegas? Or does it depend on the HOA's of the neighborhoods?

In the City of Las Vegas, or in the Las Vegas Valley? What we call Las Vegas is either the city of, or could be County areas outside any city limits, or could be inside of Henderson, or North Las Vegas city limits.

In the City of Las Vegas you can have three adult animals. They are supposed to have doggie licenses, but I think few do. Don't know about Henderson or North Town, but people in all three cities have horses. My daughter just bought my granddaughter three new baby chicks that will grow up to be laying hens. But she can't have a rooster in North Las Vegas because of the noise.

HOA's are a different story. We once put earnest money on a house in Painted Desert and then got the CC&Rs. They said the HOA would only allow two dogs and we had three. So we got our money back.

But that's if you live in a community with an HOA. Most families in Las Vegas don't have an HOA so they don't worry about it. My ex and I were usually over the limit of adult animals. A guy from the city came by one day to ask about it and we told him we were watching a dog for a friend. He said OK, and went away.

Best to go to the websites of each city and read the rules.

Sorry, I guess I mean in the entire area as we're not sure exactly where we'll be relocating to. Henderson or the Providence area is most likely I think. It did seem like most houses we were looking at had HOA fees.

I didn't realize that would be information listed on the websites! Thank you.

The general limit is three dogs or cats or ferrets. That is true in Clark County and the three cities.

HOAs are virtually certain in Henderson and Providence and are very likely to have further limits.

There is generally a pet fancier license that allows more animals. Again though that will not override the HOA.

Not everyone has to live in a HOA community. If you want 4,5,6+ dogs, there places you can go.

Not if you want to live in nice Henderson or Providence.

Note that 3 dogs is max without a special permit.

Might get away with more in Pahrump...but not in Clark County.

Not everyone has to live in a HOA community. It's not for everyone. People move there because it looks cleaner than areas that don't have HOAs and then complain about the rules later.
Not everyone has to live in Providence. You have to pick your priorities. Do you want to be able to get a special permit or move to Pahrump and go wild or do you want to live in a pretty master planned community where they have restrictions to keep it looking the way it does now.
If having a large number of dogs or other animals is your priority, you don't move to Providence if that's restricted.

Actually the OP wanted to live in Henderson or Providence.

In general if you want a large number of dogs or cats stick to the County. The most permissive. But note that you will need a fanciers permit. Those are rumored to be far easier to get in the County than in the cities. And if you buy a half acre or more no one will ever complain so you can do what you will.
