It's a bit of an unwinnable situation. Eventually there will be a fight and vet bills. Dog parks are designed to help owners socialize, not dogs. Dogs don't need to play with other dogs to be "happy." They have a pack and leader - you. lefty I'll be the first to admit that I don't know a lot about dogs so please take this as an honest question rather than questioning your statement... Am I enough of a 'pack' for my dog? I know it's silly, but he seems to get exited as we approach the park, thus I interpret this as 'happiness'. Trust me, I'd rather not take him to the dog park at all, and I'm certainly not there for my entertainment, but I assumed he was enjoying it... I'd honestly rather run drills and agility training with him or teach him frisbee or something like that. It's like taking your kid to the amusement Disneyland or something. The adults aren't going to get anything out of it but they do it for their kids enjoyment. I would love to hear your statement elaborated on a bit if you could? I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, I've only been following this thread relatively recently.
