Not sure if there is a thread dedicated to dog park related experiences
* what to expect
* what happened last weekend
* group and discussion
I'll kick it off - Yesterday arvo took Cindy to the dog park, got there and about 10 other dogs are already around.
Not a problem, got her inside the par. She enjoys being around other people and other dogs. Me, I just walk around
keeping an eye on her and having a chat with everyone else.
Half an hour in the park, there's another staffy came 13 months old male. In some reason Cindy 7 months old Amstaff
and the staffy had a big clash, like literally big clash where I really need to pull 2 dogs away. Not a biggie to me cause
first I know they are both pups still and probably just personally clash (first time they met).
So after separating them both, I got Cindy on leash and hand over the other dog the its owner. The owner straight away
defended her dog saying that this never happen, I was like huh? dude what are you talking about? anyway I walk Cindy away
and had a chat with other people who I always have a chat everytime we're there, and these people said to me " oh cindy had
a big fight with that pitbull", I was like Oh ok --- so I just decided, you know let's go home.
Amazing that how people react on something that's small and natural to happen. owner being defensive and then other people
bagging oh because it's a pitbull. end of the day I mind my own business, got surprise what everyone's thoughts. Well that will
not change me not going back there.
What do you guys think? or have you been to a similar situation? or do you have other experience? Share it everyone
