Baby teeth falling out with rough play

I've been taking my puppy 5 months to the dog park since he got vaccinated. He plays with other older dogs who are a little rougher. He's losing teeth every time.

This last time he lost about 5-6 of them. Should I stop taking him to the dog park until his teeth are fully grown?

here are some pictures:

In this picture you can see there is entire side that is missing now.

The teeth will come out when they are ready, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Vegas whacked his chin on the coffee table playing with me when he was a pup, knocked one of his canine teeth out. And when Nevada was young her and Vegas were running up and down the hall, she turned around in the bathroom doorway and smacked her head good on the door. Actually split one of the back teeth in half length wise. Not long after that the rest of the tooth fell out.

Now the dog park is another thing. I'd be careful taking a puppy to the park, I personally wouldn't. Not until they are older. But if you feel comfortable taking your young dog then I wouldn't let the teeth stop you.

I'm thinking about stopping since they are too rough. He's a Malamute, so he's already the same size as most of the dogs, but not strong enough.

At what age is good for a a puppy?

It would vary dog to dog and even place to place. Some people won't go at all. A few months ago I had the dogs at a dog park and Shorty was attacked. Like full on dog wanted to kill him attacked. It was horrible and terrifying. So no more dog park for the boys. I didn't take Freyja till she was 8 or 9 months old. At that point she was the biggest dog there.

You could go on off hours, when there are less people there. What you don't want is for your pup to develop bad habits or have a bad/scary experience. I'd want my dog to have a pretty good recall and manners before going to a dog park.

By the way, I love Mals. Always wanted one but I don't think they would be a good match for me. Beautiful dogs. What is your boys name?

I don't think you'll be making a bad decision at all to take a pass on the dog park. Too many crappy owners who have absolutely no control over their dogs.

His name is Frost.

He lost a lot of teeth today, which I didn't like. Usually he chips them here and there, but today was a little rough.
