I agree 100%.frankly, i don't go to dog parks anymore because of these kind of situations and irresponsible dog owners. If I want my dogs to socialize I do that with dogs I know.
I would not go back there.
I love going to the dog park. But we normally have smart people there.
Now I'll stand outside of the gates and observe the other dogs first before going in. There was a rottweiler/lab mix looking dog there once and he was definitely a troublemaker. Almost started a few fights, owner wasn't even paying attention to him. I just played with Sania in the field outside of the fenced area where he was.
We have a dog park in our development that is only open to homeowners. It's a great thing that it is private b/c you get to know everyone and it is often empty and a great place to meet with your dog's friends without others if you like, or go alone to train off leash in a large area.
I have stopped going to the planned meetings where there are a lot of dogs b/c some aren't well behaved. Also since Max is not altered he will be blamed even though he is not aggressive b/c, I have been told, other dogs will be aggressive toward him.
****So I want to ask those with more dog park experience than I if you think this is the case? How much do unaltered dogs cause aggression in those around it?
