  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, We have a four year old 75 lb, rescue boxer mix whom we've had for over a year now. He likes to lick people's faces. When we first got him we enjoyed that he greeted us by standing up but once we started doing it to strangers we stopped. He still does it occasionally but we always turn out...

    So, after years of people trying to get a dog park in my town, it finally happened! We got our dog park. It's honestly been absolutely amazing. I got my dog when she was three months old. We only knew one person who had another dog, which meant my dog only got acquainted with him, and only...

    Help. . . howling dog in the dog park! Quick background. Black & Tan coonhound rescue of 1 year (~4 year old dog). Sweet as a can be, humans, dogs and cats. Loves people, loves dogs, ignores cats. When we drive to the off-leash dog park, she begins howling in delight. With other dogs, she...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog is about to turn 2 in a couple months. He is a 70 lb black lab, whom I've had since he was 10 weeks. As soon as I got him, I began to socialize him at a nearby 25-acre dog park with a lake. He would be overly frantic and excited and almost completely manic when we got there and would not...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    Am I doing something wrong here? Genuinely, let me know if there's something I can/should be doing... Occasionally my 2 year old dog steps in other dogs water bowls. Steps in them. Making them dirty. It seems relatively rare. But, he does it quite intentionally. Most people brush it off as a...

    Hello everyone! My name is Adrienne and I have a 2 year old Cane Corso and a 3 year old lab/pit mix rescue. I've had my Cane Corso, Roman, since he was a puppy, and rescued the lab/pit, Sookie, last summer. They have been to the dog park, as well as dog park-style daycare/boarding facility...

    Hi Everyone, I'm a first-time dog owner, had my guy now about 7 months and he's about 1yr. We've noted recently that he has scabs developing on his hind legs, about midway between paw and hook. Today, after getting back from the local dog park those scabs were a bit bloody. I cleaned him up...

    I'm Jesse, I have an sweet, very energetic 10 month old mixed breed rescue named Ruben. We began taking him to a local dog park a few months ago and I found myself wondering why aren't there more ideal, convenient places to take our dogs? Someplace safe, fenced and grassy? Our choices are slim...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and need some advice on my dog Oliver. I've attached a picture for your reference. He's a sweetheart who loves playing with other dogs, but some dogs seem intimidated by him, possibly because he's a large male. A couple times he's been minding his own...
  10. Puppy Help
    Hi all, My puppy Ivy (I realized she's actually 8 1/2 months old, not 9 months, whoops) adores the dog park. We usually take her 3-4 times a week, and that's how she gets most of her exercise. (I take her for frequent walks as well, but am so much less fit than she is that it's more of an...

    Hi. We have spare time with a rental car on Monday and was thinking of taking our small, social dog (14 LBS) to a dog run outside the city, but not too far. He has done well with the small and large dog runs in Carl Schurz and the ones on the promenade in the E. 60s. Any suggestions for a...
  12. New Additions
    I have a 4 month old Saint Bernard puppy who has all his shots and was wondering if it would be a good idea to bring him to the dog park. I have another dog who we take to the dog park all the time and I would like to start bringing both of them. The lady who supervises the puppy play class I...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey guys, I'm writing this for my friend who is very concerned about her golden. We go to the dog park together, and I have seen this golden grow up at the park. He is from a breeder (not a rescue), and he started going at about 4-5 months old and is now over a year. He is neutered. We luckily...
  14. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a young male Catahoula (we think), who is neutered. We take him to the dog park regularly, and recently, he has started having problems. He is great with the other dogs 99% of the time. However, whenever someone brings in an extremely high-energy dog, (the type that comes flying in...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have an 11 month old terrier/boxer/hound mix (I think), at 75 pounds. When I first got her at 6 mo, she never had an incident. It wasn't until about 3 months ago that she started this behavior. It seems that she is resource guarding against ME and my boyfriend, or ANY person who might give her...

    A week ago our city got a dog park. I have been going this past week with Zoey and its been hit or miss. I tend to the more respectful side of things, Zoey is up to date on shots, but a bit young. So I have made sure and hovered over her like a hawk when she is in situations with larger dogs...

    Hello fellow dog lovers, I hope you're all having a fantastic week! And if you aren't - well, the weekend's right around the corner. :) Have any of you had experience in planning or volunteering to help at a dog walk? I'm working with some dog lovers in my community and we'd like to put one...

    Whoa - it's hard to remember the last time I was this upset! Today, my boyfriend and I decided to take our mild mannered basset hound to her favorite dog park. There were 2 adult females there along with a young 7 month old boxer mix. As soon as we entered the park, they're dog was running up...
  19. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 16 month old cocker/maltese. He usually has so much energy around the house and always wants to play catch with his ball. I took him to the dog park for the first time a week ago but as soon as he went in, he wouldn't leave my side! There were a couple of other little dogs (about his...
