Bad dog park, bad!!!!

>
so, Laszlo has a little shyness towards larger dogs. The first stranger dog i had him meet was a buddies pit mix and he was a bit aggressive and kinda freaked Laszlo out but i've been working on that. So the third trip to the dog park was going great we were in the big dog section.
Big GSD
Big mix of sorts
Big boxer
small mix
medium mix

All getting along great they flipped him on his belly and he was all submissive they let him up they all ran and played i couldn't have been prouder but then a 100lb pit showed up and was ruff housing and i got nervous but he and Laszlo were even playing, Laszlo would run and the pit would follow all good was even happier since it was similar to the first dog experience.
then this stupid woman and her ugly pit mix of sorts showed up, i watched and her dog came right in and grabbed the boxer by the face and humped her face!! i should have just left right here, but he dogs will be dogs....so it got ahold of Lasz and he got flipped and the dog had the other dogs all worked up and the 100lb pit and this dog started to get real ruff but i just let it go then it got a bit serious laszlo got bit a few times and nobody did anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i got bit i think my sunglasses went flying I STOPPED THIS REAL FAST AT THIS POINT. I looked down and saw blood on my so i searched him and his ear is bleeding. i almost punched this lady right in the face after she stared at me blankly? i said you got something to say? anything sorry anything? she was like a homeless lady i swear she just stared at me.. i said you speak sign? spainish? english? or just stupid? she says nothing! i say it again she says i don't speak to stupid people, as i grabbed my dog i said some choice words and left as the 100lb pit tried to eat a bulldog!
now i'm at a crossroads, go back and show him it's not always bad or just stay away cuz i'm going to get into a fight there. i will just about kill somebody to protect my boy and i think it may have been a bit much as nobody had much to say... i tend to freak out a bit and i'm loud..but still this dog is the reason that all dogs shouldn't be allowed at a public park. She's lucky i like dogs and didn't actually kill this think cuz about 4 more seconds and she'd have been carrying that ugly **** out of there.

...he was worth the wait as are all good things

One of many reasons I don't go to dog parks. Doggie day care may be a better option for Laz.

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

No daycare. He's being crate trained during the day we may get a dog walker at 11ish if we can manage some extra money.

it was soo nice there until this lady showed up..there was something wrong with her no doubt. i'd like to see if that dog would bite my dog again if they met...i think he'll remember me and my dog.

it was a sunday so i'll just go at like 4 after work during the week and see what type of crowd it brings.

He was doing so good and having such a good time i don't want him to have the only memory to be a bad one!

he'll do better when he gets a bit bigger and sure of himself i'm sure. he was doing 120% better than our other trip to the park/beach.

For some dogs, dog park is the only energy outlet... Scarry! I'm glad your little guy is all good now.

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

Your pup depends on you to protect them. You can't let it go when older, larger dog are running with him. He needs to be removed immediately from the situation at any hint of trouble. It doesn't matter who is right or wrong at that moment, your only concern is keeping your pup safe.
Find some friends with well behaved dogs that like puppies to let him play with. The dog park is a crap shoot. Might be great one day and unsafe the next.




Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

crap shoot it is......i hope i didn't ruin his outlook on other dogs.
he was having the time of his life running and playing. I most certainly was protecting him, the second that it was "too" much i got in there...a little help from some of the owners would have helped, i'm big but i'm only one person!!!! :-\

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

Don't worry about him bouncing back. Dogs are good at that. If you worry they worry and don't bounce back. I am glad we don't have dog parks in the UK. If Mac meets another dog it is when we are out in the woods or in a field. So if the dog is a pain he just out runs them or comes back to me and I sort the dog out. You tend to meet better natured dogs in the field. Dogs that also like to run and use running to get out their burst of energy; running instead of rough housing.

Ditto. As I have said before, find an off-leash meetup in your area for much better experiences for little Lazslo. Most other people who take their dogs to "dog parks" are lazy and can't be bothered to teach their dog manners or a decent recall.

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

I don't know of any areas like that around me..how do you find them out? i'm in brandon florida? thanks

i want him to at least go back and know it's all right. i mean i really should have known and just left, i had that feeling. I'm semi glad it wasnt' the 100lb pit biting i would have had to really do something to move him back a bit....as it was i just shoved him with one hand away from the mess......lucky i didn't start kicking dogs since nobody wanted to help me....i mean i'd hate to do it but i'd def do WHATEVER it took to get him out of that situation and Dogs DON'T scare me one bit, don't care how big they are. I'm sure they can feel that energy too.

Re: Bad dog park, bad!!!!

In the UK we have lots of places like I mentioned and I guess it is a result of not having dog parks. I hope others on the forum will be able to recommend places that you can go to in your area. RubyRoo is in florida I think so you could send her a message. Also google google and google, it might take some time but you will find places. Also everytime I meet other people that have dogs when I am out whether with Mac or not I try to ask them where their fav spots are for off lead time.
