I can call him off pretty good, but sometimes he doesn't come right away.

He also growls a lot when he's playing, which mak re people think he's trying to attack their dog. That's just how he plays, he's very talkative. He's never been in a fight. I just want to enjoy the dog park with him.

Any advice welcome!
Stay out of the dog park. If your dog is rough, it's an incident waiting to happen. My dog also plays rough. We only go to dog parks for training.
