To dog park, or not to Dog park..?
Hi everyone, wanted to hear peoples opinions about dog parks..
Iv been taking 1 year old ozmo for the past month, and 90% of the time he is just running around like a pup having a good ol'time.. Great exercise for him since he runs for hours with friendly dogs...otherwise I take him on 4-5km hikes everyday in the woods.
But lately some of the older dogs have been snapping and throwing themselves at him for no particular reason.. Is it because he isn't neutured or feel he is some threat? My oz never backs down, and isn't intimidated at all..He stands still and snarls showing his teeth, and it usually escalates into small fights..
Today he got into it with a 2 year old american bulldog and hes got cuts under his chin, last week he somehow managed to get a small cut below his eye... never saw it happen..I don't want to start sounding like an irresponsible owner.. I don't want him to injure another dog, or get injured himself.. he is my little baby, and I care for him like a child.
Ugh.. I guess the bad and potential harm is outweighing the 90% of the time he is having a good time playing.. my wife is giving me grief today.
