Your dog is telling you she doesn't feel comfortable in the dog park. She is 8 years old and may be a bit arthritic, not in the mood for other more energetic dogs. Plus everything is new to her. Let her bond with you and build trust and confidence with you. After a couple months, you can try the dog park again, if she does not like it, forget about it. She also might be one of those dogs that does best with one dog at a time.
