The love you have for your pampered four-legged friend is priceless. Seeing them growing to be a happy and healthy adult is just all you have ever wished for!
We are definitely not doubting the love you have for your pooch but you might be harming them unintentionally when taking them to the dog park!
1. AGGRESSIVE DOGS
One of the major concerns at dog parks is dog fights. Taking your dog to such parks means putting them in the middle of many dogs ranging from different breeds
whose temperaments and reactions you totally ignore.You might be thinking now that your dog is super friendly
and not aggressive to engage in such fights. Well, we are not saying otherwise but if your dog is not others might be!
For this reason, it is very important to take all your caution and prepare for ever thinking to take your dog there in order to keep them safe and out of harm. The wise thing you should do is visit the park alone.
When we say alone, we mean you should go there without your dog. You’d better repeat this visit during many times a day to see when it’s crowded and when it’s not. Of course, don’t forget to observe the whole atmosphere out there.
If your dog is new to the park, then you’d better take them during off hours. This way, you will find it more easy to control your dog and also the surrounding dogs.
We feel responsible to warn you that some dogs in dog parks are in pack mentality. This means that when a new dog is added to the mix, others will do all their best to make the new dog regrets the visit.
So, they will be more aggressive to him. The newcomer is not always welcomed in dog parks, therefore, you’d better avoid such confrontation in the first place!
2. IRRESPONSIBLE OWNERS
Another serious trouble you might confront when you take your dog to the dog parks is the irresponsible owner. The problem here is not about dogs rather about their owners. Dogs are animals that learn by habits and consistency.In another word, they only follow the steps of their owners. If the ower is irresponsible, the dog will be automatically the same.
