Hello, I have been to the park several time with my Beagle he 6 months old , I will not be coming back, on 10/28 a boxer tried to bite him and stomped on his head the owner did nothing to stop it on 10/30 a large dog looked like poodle mix was h**ping him and bit his neck again the ower did nothing until I was out of the park.
We are very sorry to hear of your bad experience at the park, and will post a reply soon. Keep checking the website. What is your pup's name?
His name is Bandit
Hi Bill, I go to the dog park frequently, and If I was there I would certainly help your dog. Large dogs have no business in the small dog enclosure. No dog over 40lbs should be in there.
He was in the big dog area, he was fine till the dogs started to gang up on him
I am so sorry that you were distressed by both incidents. I have a very timid golden retriever and initially was unhappy with some of the "rough" play at the park, but we persisted and I stayed close to her and if I needed to I stopped behaviour I thought inappropriate by shouting or clapping my hands. It always seemed to do the trick.
I have an issue with people who show up after dark and let their dogs free to relieve themselves with or without the intention of picking up after them. How much can you possibly see in the dark, with or without a flashlight.? Which means that someone else has to do it.
Well dogs under 40lbs and especially puppies should be well supervised in the big dog area. Puppies especially should be gradually presented to larger and older dogs. Until they reach maturity a rough encounter can retard there ability to understand the body language dogs use to social network. A small dog like a poodle can control an entire pack with body language but not until it reaches maturity.
Dr.Marilynn Glasser, dog park expert has this to say in regards to Bill’s blog: ”Either the little Beagle was in the large dog area and shouldn't have been OR the Boxer and Poodle mix were in the small dog area and shouldn't have been. Those were my FIRST thoughts. Were the owners of these larger dogs paying attention? Were they observing their dogs' behavior as they are supposed to? Did the Beagle's owner alert the other owner(s) when each incident occurred? I have trouble believing that the other owners watched the incident and ignored what was happening.ALL dog owners have responsibilities in a dog park - mostly common senseresponsibilities. I wish the Beagle's owner had said something tosomebody when the incidents occurred. Sounds to me like all three parties may have been at fault. I'd sure liketo know WHERE in the park the incidents happened - my first comments (large/small dog areas) may answer the problem rathersimplistically...Remember to: -Use the appropriate area for your dog at the park - large or small- Observe and monitor your dog at all times when in the park.- If your dog is being aggressive IN ANY WAY, remove him/her IMMEDIATELY.- Be responsible and correct your dog's inappropriate behavior - including "humping".Those are just off the top. Hope this is helpful. Good Luck. Marilynn” Having shared Dr. Glasser’s sage advice, I would also add that everyday at the park is a different day depending on the mix of dogs and even the moods of the same dogs. Don’t be discouraged from visiting the park. You might want to start Bandit in the small dog park while you observe the dogs in the large dog area for their activity level. At six months old, Bandit may be too overwhelmed by their high energy play. Also keep in mind that the type of play varies with each breed and that growling noises, “herding” and even playful mouthing may be normal for a specific breed. Come at off peak hours initially and keep his first visits short so that he leaves with a positive experience. Familiarize yourself with the rules of the park. Check out the rules and tips for first time visitors on this website and take a dog park etiquette brochure from the park. The regular dog parkers are really friendly and willing to help newcomers.
