    My dog Lucy is a three year old mix, unsure of what mix though (possibly Boston Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and/or Frenchie? Let me know if you have a guess). We rescued her a little over 8 months ago she had just turned three, she’ll be four in November. When we first got her she was...

    Can anyone help me? Our 18 month old female Lab/Rottweiler cross is suddenly aggressive to other dogs. She has regular walks at the dog park where she (used to) love playing with other dogs her size, but has always reacted badly to little fluffy ones. And just tonight she’s escalated to snapping...

    My dog, Charlie, a lab/hound mix, is about 35 lbs at 14 months. She's friendly and playful--she loves playing with all dogs, whether it's chasing, being chased, or wrestling at the dog park. We go about twice a day. She's always rolling around. Very little body sensitivity. HOWEVER, she goes...

    I have a black lab, whippet mix, a whippador if you will, who is the love of my life. She is so friendly and sweet and loves to do zoomies around the house. She is the perfect balance of active and sedentary and knows when she can be energetic and when she needs to calm down. I take her running...

    I'm Jesse, I have an sweet, very energetic 10 month old mixed breed rescue named Ruben. We began taking him to a local dog park a few months ago and I found myself wondering why aren't there more ideal, convenient places to take our dogs? Someplace safe, fenced and grassy? Our choices are slim...

    Hello! I am the lucky owner of a sweet, playful, energetic black lab mix named Charley (~11 months old). We adopted him when he was ~7 months old and put him immediately in basic training. He knows his commands, is not destructive, gets oodles of exercise and really is just a joyful, exuberant...

    I was just curious as to why people do this. This is more of a "venting" post lol. I have a dog-agressive toy-sized mini-dachshund, Lucy (she's very small), who's missing most of her teeth (her original owner never took her to a vet for her gum disease and her teeth rotted out) and everyone...

    Hello all - We took our 1.5 year old fixed male Rough Collie to the local dog park yesterday, a dog park he has been to probably 20-25 times over the past six months without incident. We were there for 15-20 minutes without any issues when a Siberian Husky and its owners entered the dog park. I...

    I have 4 Miniature Schnauzers, 3 females and one male, all spayed/neutered. The male, Kumo, has never had a mounting problem outside of his own family, and what little mounting he does do is always discouraged. Compared to the girls, Kumo has an extremely high-pitched bark/yelp when he gets...

    Hi! I'm really excited to be on this forum. This is my first post - I've read a bunch of other responses but haven't seen anything that directly addresses our issue. My dog, Ripken, is a boxer/hound rescue. I adopted him in September and now he's a little over a year old. My roommate has a...

    I have a 7 month old catahoula leopard dog. For those not familiar with the breed, http://m.dogbreedinfo.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.dogbreedinfo.com%2Fcatahoula.htm#2990 Recently, I've been having trouble with him at the dog park. When he is playing/wrestling with a dog, he is great. He'll...

    There is a widely shared belief that leashes at dog parks indicate a maladjusted dog or some form of abuse on the part of the owner. I am one of the people who use a leash intermittently while at an off-leash dog park. I believe a leash is an important and useful tool to communicate with and...

    We moved to our current city from an area with no dog parks. Shelby grew up in fenced yards and always with other dogs, either my parent's three dogs or my roommate's two, plus at one point two foster dogs. She was never an 'only dog', plus we walked her, took her to dog friendly businesses, etc...

    Rambo is a 6 month old Great Pyrenees and weights 60 lbs. This dog is going to be a beast when fully grown. Rambo is my friends dog and I bought Daisy (Sheltie) over to play with him. Daisy ran circles around Rambo and got him all tired.

    Well, it's not a picture, but a short video I managed to get of my dog at the park. She had carried her ball into the water and it was making her quite upset, so we had to resort to throwing sticks instead. Thought I'd share it since it managed to give us a laugh.

    Dog owners. I'm working on an article and was wondering if anyone had any fun quotes on crazy dog park experiences. Everyone’s had an ‘incident’ at the dog part – their dog got in a fight with another dog, my dog got peed on once, a dog jumped in a mud puddle, a saint Bernard spent and...
