Should I be concern that my puppy tends to bark and try to excite other dogs at the dog park...mostly smaller dogs. Or is her behavior normal for her breed/age (rottie;7months)I usually don't get involved unless she's completely dominating a smaller dog.
I would say as long as you keep her under control, as in on a leash, she will be fine. You can work on her not barking, but basically, I think she's probably excited and is barking trying to make the other dog play with her. I will say though, that taking her to the dog park frequently , and letting her socialize with other dogs, especially small yappy ones is a good idea.Make sure you do the same with small children. I owned two Rotties, and they despised small dogs that barked at them.....were fine with bigger dogs, but not the small ones. It was my mistake in not socializing them properly, and also the fact that I bought them at the age of 5 months. If I had it to do again, I would do things differently.Good luck with her.
