I go to the dog park everyday and there always seems to be 1 or 2 dogs that arre totally out of control. either to aggresive or jumoing up, stealing toys, running over little dogs, digging (which is not a problem until the owners do not fill the holes) or the dogs elminate with nobody cleaning up. I have approached these folks and have gotten nothing but flak. i am courteous and kind. but they don't take well to me telling them tht their dog has or is doing something unacceptable.
LOL, that's too bad, sometimes that's what it takes with people like that. It's no different than the people who let their older kids run all over the littler ones at the park. I used to mouth off all the time until my husband convinced me to shut up before somebody shot me. People are so inconsiderate, and of course their dog (or child) could NEVER do anything wrong.
Dogs being somewhat aggressive with other dogs aint that big of a deal, and if by jumping up you mean on humans, that's a good point, but there's no problem if a dog jumps on another dog. It does make me very angry when Dundee ends up with someone else's poop all over him because some jerk didn't clean up though.
I have a huge park right outside my door and I spend pretty much al my time there. luke is now 1.2 years old and is pretty much one of "those" dogs I try my best to keep track of him but he still jumps over small dogs. I have Misha as well and she's a small dog but he still jumps over other small dogs and he runs of to other dogs even if I tell him not to...
But anyhow, there are alot of aggresiv dogs there as well luke keeps out of there way but alot of the other dogs just see another playmate and a couple have been biten. and these people drive my nuts, I've been able to chase a few away but there is always a new one. The ones that irritate me the most thoe are thoes that walk there dogs on a leash in the dog park and then get mad as soon as another dog runs up to say hi, luke has been kicked wacked and punched... what do you do about those people????last week A guy walking his two papilions (Luke has met them alot) Luke ran up to say hi and this guy wacked Luke with his unbrella!!!! Så know lukes got a gash over his left eye... some people make me so mad!!
Don't treat your dog human, it will only treat you like a dog.
