There's never a shortage of trigger-happy degenerates.

Ahhh, another reason to never go to a dog park with a GSD (or any other dog, for that matter!). JMO.

Must be a thing in Houston dog parks. I posted a similar article a few months ago where a man shot and killed a GSD pup in the dog park on a busy Sunday afternoon w/ lots of families (and children) present. The GSD pup was "playing too rough" too.

I don't let my own dogs play "too rough" with each other. What would make a person think that somebody else would tolerate such play from another dog?

The breed of dog often determines how "rough" the play is perceived by other people.

Because they're at a dog park. Dog park people usually think that rough is how dogs play, that's why people take their under exercised, untrained dogs to dog parks to 'blow off steam'. That's why these things happen. And that's why I don't take my dogs to dog parks.

There are some really nutso people out there. It's scary. Always something to keep in mind when you own powerful breeds.

Perhaps rough play by certain breeds of dogs, or any breed of dogs, is indicative of what most likely will follow?

Never have taken Newlie and never will. Some people on this forum do take their dogs to dog parks and say they have done so for years with no problem but my feeling is that everything is always OK until one day, suddenly, it isn't. And sadly, sometimes it only takes one incident for there to be irreparable damage. So, while I hope that things continue to go well for them, I wouldn't count it. To me, it's like playing with a loaded gun, sooner or later somebody is going to get hurt. And bear in mind that whenever there is an altercation, it won't matter if a smaller dog is trying to rip your dog's face off, the big dog will always get the blame and be the one called "dangerous."

Not sure what dog parks are like where you live, but most of the people that go to the same ones that I do have dogs that are well behaved and well exercised, exercise is one of the primary purposes most people do use dog parks. The dog park people in my area do not think that rough play is how dogs play, nor do they allow or appreciate it.
