Hello! I have a dalmatian puppy (16 wks old) and am living in an apartment. I know that with dalmatians it is very important to socialize them early so that they do not become aggressive when they are older. With humans my puppy is great but around other dogs (even little ones) she is still very timid. There is a dog park here at my apartment complex that I think would be great for her so that she can extinguish her energy and socialize at the same time. I have however heard people say that dog parks are not safe due to bacteria from dog poop. So I am curious if anyone here has any opinions on the topic. Has your dog ever gotten sick from a dog park. I know that there are other ways to socialize such as training classes ect. and we are utilizing those options but it obviously isn't everyday and she isn't getting to run around and use up her energy when she is out for class or something. The dog park here at my complex is just so tempting because we can go everyday.
