There's a current discussion on the TA's Facebook about the dog rules in Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. The comments are all correct. The bottom line is that Public Safety can't or won't enforce the dog rules. Everyone who is awake in this community knows this. Either PS has been told by management to turn a blind eye to:
1) Dogs over the weight limit
2) Dogs that are banned in ST/PCV
3) Dogs that have no proper ID tags (in most cases, dogs coming in from outside with their owners)
4) The number of dogs a tenant is allowed
...or PS just doesn't have the manpower to clamp down on the many infractions of the dog rules I see here continually.
About the only time I see a Public Safety officer approach a dog owner is when that dog is in the Oval Fountain area--if there is a Public Safety officer around and if he's not looking at his cellphone in the nearby guard booth.
Just recently I've seen a dog sniffing around in the no-dog area where the Greenmarket is held and a Public Safety officer was standing not far away, looking, but did nothing. And forget about the Security booth at the 1st Ave entrance to Peter Cooper Village. The PS guys inside see, or should see, dogs being brought in from outside and they do nothing.
So what's the deal, Chief?
