Thanks, ZoesMom! I gave up on several dog parks in my area, because I was seeing too many problems.

I've been to the dog park 4 times. After the last time I said nope not for my dogs.

I loved the last video, the poor small brown dog looks TERRIFIED. I can't believe nobody cared, that was VERY obvious.

I would like to see more video like this, except more like the terrier's POV-or less obvious signals. I think it's more beneficial to study videos of dogs interacting poorly but not obviously so intervention can happen way in advance.

I know Koda plays with her hackles up and very pointed too, not just when she;s hunting. She does it with me when she's just jumping on and off the couch and I'm encouraging her to play, so I don't think that ALWAYS means hunting, but definitely aroused. Lots to think about with how she interacts with other dogs.

Good find, ZM!

My dogs aren't good candidates for a dog park, and even if they were, I still doubt I'd be comfortable using one. But here is another good article for anyone who considers going to one:
Should I Take My Dog To The Dog Park?

ETA, one more: http://4pawsu.com/Dog%20Parks.pdf

Love the article btw.


See... If every dog is like Roman at the dog park, I would have no problems trusting the other dogs and owners. Roman have only ever sniffed and played chase (each other taking turns) with friendly dogs he encountered, ignored any unfriendly ones. Never barked ever at any stranger or dogs... Definitely never growled, lunged, snap, snarled or bitten any humans or dogs.

Too forward actions of a dog that he is skeptical off... Yah, he back off and pretty much try to ignore it.

So if everydog is like mine at a dog park...
Then and only then would I bring him there.

Great articles. I've never taken any of my dogs to a dog park and never will. It's just not worth it to me. Every time I hear or read someone say how much their dog loves the dog park I always think to myself. "It's all fun and games until it isn't." Most who love dog parks haven't had that bad experience yet and the others are the type who are oblivious.
