change of heart

I have been bringing my boy to the dog park around the corner from my condo since he was seven months. He always played rough with the other dogs but was well liked and never got out of control or became really vicious. I thought that he was socialized well enough to be unleashed around other dogs.

UNTIL.... July when my daughter was born.. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, but if I let him off-leash in that dog park around other dogs, unless they are small dogs or puppies, he will immediately try to attack and kill them. He's like a completely different animal and will not listen to any commands and he terrifies all of the large dogs and people.

Now I only go there rarely when the weather is bad or very early in the morning when there are no dogs there. I normally just bring him to the county park early in the morning before the mountain bikers get up there. It's 375 acres and there are NO OTHER DOGS there at that time.

Luckily my dog hasn't injured any other dogs, but now I have learned what so many of the people meant about this breed around other dogs off-leash. Just because your dog has always gotten along well with other dogs, doesn't mean that he always will and it can mean thousands in a lawsuit and cause more public damage to the breed.

Be really careful with your Pit in the dog park!

I make my own dag park. Usually have a few friends with dogs go out for a hike or an empty field and they can play. I know they care for their animals and my dog loves her pals.

Never been to a dog park.. never will. I wouldnt go no matter the breed I owned. We go hiking and to open fields/parks with Brooklyn's friends only. She has a good dozen doggy friends she plays with, and that is plenty for me and her! No need to go play with dogs of people I don't know. IMO, if you want to get a dog breed that needs to be socialized, and you don't know anyone that owns dogs for your dog to socialize... don't get a pit!

Good management and knowledge prevent trouble. I agree with this 100%. If you know your dog and have trained him well and spent some good quality time with him or her, then there is not a reason why you can not allow him or her to socialize at the dog park.

there are many many reasons to avoid a dog park even with the most socialized well trained and behaved dog. Disease and BSL are at the very top. It doesn't matter if your dog was even in a fight, it could be other dogs that get at it, but YOUR dog would be the one mentioned. Its has happened many many many times, including from someone on here! Why take the risk when there are many other places and people and dogs you could socialize with that don't include allow your dog off leash on public property with dogs and owners you do not know?

I've decided to stop going to dog parks. If I do, then it needs to be near-empty. I used to take my puppy there all the time once she got her shots. I liked going because I learned a lot about my dog and other people, but now it's getting too risky. Although she's only 40 lbs. she has no concept of her size and loves to play with much bigger dogs (100 lbs.+). It's also mainly because I don't trust other people with their dogs, especially when they come in cliques that meet every other evening or so.

My pup isn't DA but she will zone in and pick on insecure/nervous dogs, especially if they are vocal and small(er). She'd taunt them and want to play. She's gotten a lot better about leaving those types of dogs alone, especially if I'm close enough to just stand/walk in her way. Either way, too much of a risk. People have and will misconstrue her play behavior as aggression.

I also hate it when other owners start talking to you about how to raise your dog. Most park people are average pet owners and do not need to pay attention to their dogs as much as those who work their animals.

Dog park, no.

Go to dog parks, don't go to dog parks.

We have stopped going to dog parks also, even with our non-pit bull. While my pit mix is not DA, neither dog will let another attack it with snapping back. Last time we were there, there was a 'pack' of dogs that kept trying to 'play' with our pup. I had to pick him up and leave, while the owners looked on or visited with each other. We decided that it was not worth risking it just to give our dogs a chance to run in a bigger space than we have at home.

Stopped going to dog park when a gentleman dropped off his Doberman and proceeded to leave for his jog. Left the dog completely unattended and I was the a hole for grabbing him and making him take care of his dog.

We stay away from the dog parks also. I took Deuce to the dog park a couple of times for socialization back when he was just a pup. The first time no one supervised their dogs and paid no attention that their dogs were running mine over, so we left. The second time we stayed off to the side kind of away from the others. As Deuce and I were playing fetch minding our own business a Golden Retriever ran over and started attacking him while my pup just coward onto the ground. The owner of the dog was way on the other side of the part sitting at a picnic table drinking her coffee with her back facing the field where her dog was supposed to be playing, she had no idea anything had happened. I will never go back to a dog park no matter what breed I own, I don't want to risk my dog turning out DA because of a bad experience with an out of control dog and careless owners.

We still take our two dogs to the park. If I don't like how people are acting or their dogs I ask them to leave. We have a set of rules posted on the outside and I make sure my dogs and us as owners follow them. There was a really small dog that attacked our pup and then she tried to attack our older girl and she has never once been DA but this time she put her in her place. Didn't bite her but let her know. And I let her owner know that she needed to leave. Everyone knows our dogs well and knows that they are so nice

Oh no don't get me wrong we do take them on several walks, swims, and hikes. But I take them there to socialize them. A couple out here were looking for a pit bull so I found one for them and they never took him places or around other dogs, and unfortunately the dog is not people and dog aggressive. We don't take them up there as often now but when we do if I see an owner not watching after their dogs because they THINK they won't do anything I ask them to leave or go to the other side where they don't have to worry about their dogs biting mine. I have pretty submissive dogs and they are not DA whatsoever but I still keep and eye on them so if anyone tried to say that they attacked first then I have the upper hand whether not my dogs are pit bulls or not. I live on a military base and everyone knows my dogs and knows how sweet they are.but if it came down to it and my dogs ever got out of line I would not take them up there. Guam I'd rabies free and we take them for regular checkups so I'm not afraid that they will contract a disease or anything of that sort. Sorry for the long paragraph!
