omg! seriously... i find myself thinking about this all the time...lol... another one is the "how to break up a fight" thread... if you are going to have your dog at the dog park, makes sense to learn this stuff, since you don't know who's bringing what in there...
anyway, dogs mounting at the dog park annoys/worries me tho... at home or with "friend dogs" i don't care so much, but at the dog park, when everyone is so amped up, it doesn't always go over well, but i don't really freak out about it or anything... just interrupt it...
i also interrupt sometimes if the play gets really intense... depending on how well i know the dogs... i've seen it turn from play to squabble to fight pretty quick...and i've gotten pretty good at predicting it, luckily clover is also getting good and coming to me when he hears growling. sorry, bit OT
