    Default Another Dog Park Question.. :p

    Dod park question Yes I do have plenty!! hehe

    What to do when there is an aggresive dog or a dog acting badly?

    Do you just take your dog and leave or should you say something to the owner of the dog.

    Quick example..

    We have a little dog, there was a Big Husky that was trying to bite him, constantly, and wasnt in a playfull manner.

    The owner just laughed, and made comments about my roomies dog being small.

    There was was another incident with Ruby and their other spaniel, I had a few harsh words with my roomie directed at them and they left.

    So Question is, do you say something, or do you leave?

    I think say something, as long as its kinda constructive! Its not fair if you guys have to leave because someone elses dog is playing up.

    I'd call your council ranger if the attitude of the owner was that bad. It's not legal for other dogs to harrass or bite dogs, animals or people according to the NSW companion animals act.

    And if I had a friend to hold my dog, I'd get the rego details off the husky.

    You have a right to defend your dog from other dogs acting aggressively so after asking politely the Husky owner to keep their dog away from mine (effective control), I would then tell them I will defend my dog using force if necessary. And I'd whack the husky if it came back.

    But I often leave - if it's not a recurring problem ie I've never seen that dog before and I don't expect to see it again.

    Yeah I gave his dog a little bit of a shove, he had absolutely no control over it. That and he had the most annoying voice in the world!

    I havent seen him there before, Hope to not see him there again.

    Thanks Hye

    Took Tia to the dog park yesterday when she was bitten and peed on by a rather large irish wolfhound! (seriously it was a mini horse!) The owner just sat there and watch all of 10ft away while his dog was aggressively biting my dog, finally i managed to get the dog of mine by grabbing the collar and throwing it away, it came back at me! i couldn't believe it! Good old Tia got up straight away and got infront of me (only 22 weeks old) and started barking until the dog ran right passed her to me, i promptly gave the dog a bit of a whack. Thats when the owner got up and asked why i hit his dog!!! I was so angry! He then went on to explain that his dog doesnt like other dogs sniffing him! I told him that that is a behavioral problem that needs sorting out! Apparently he does it all the time. Saw him today at the dog park, he said "oh you have come back for more"! Wish i had his details!!!

    I have had this happen before. A kelpie type dog starting to harass my dog, following him around and biting him hard enough to make him yelp. The owner sat nearby and laughed and didn't do anything until I kicked him dog square in the head and sent it yelping. When the owner came over to have a go, I told him that if his dog harasses mine like that again I'll be informing a ranger and they'll deal with him and his dog. He left shortly after that, but I no longer go to the dog park regardless if he still goes there or not.

    We usually leave. Better still the fenced off dog park has a track around the edge so we walk around there. And the same dogs that annoyed us follow us the whole way around.

    I had an aggressive dog keep trying to attack Johnny and the owner thought it was hilarious. I had a go at her for it. Saying she needs to be able to call off her dog. She replied with F this and F that. Then I said if I was her I wouldn’t use that sort of language around small children (she had a child with her) – She shut up and we left.

    When we go to the park I know the poodles can handle themselves, they avoid any dogs that are over-bearing and hang around the friendly ones, but the crested I always hang on to in my arms until I assess the other dogs there.

    It's a shame that you and your dogs can't enjoy yourselves because someone else doesn't have a brain.

    If the dog is wearing a tag write down the number and report it to your local council or ranger.
