I want YOU to do a complete search of my post history, and I want you to see what I went through as a result of aggressive dogs at dog parks.
In a nut shell.... Stay away from dog parks. Set up play dates with friends that have younger, calm dogs.
Please take my advice. My Pup is very timid as a result of being pinned at a young age.
6 month german shepherds are vey impressionable, and it only takes one incident to throw your pup out of whack.
On another note.... I take my 8 month old to Petco every Saturday. They have rescue day on Saturdays, and I simply sit there in the presence of a dozen strange dogs, without contact.
As Courtney mentioned, it's not only about running in dog parks to socialize, it's about accepting the fact that another dog is next to her, with reacting.
It took me a while to understand this, but eventually, I got it..
