Since the weather has be getting really nice, I really want to take my small dog, Shih tzu x Pekingese cross, to a dog park so she can play with other dogs and socialize. Right now I'm working on her recall, going slowly, but eventually when her recall is good, I want to take her to those vast open fields. What I'm worried about is the dangers for a small dog at dog parks. Our outdoor dog parks are not segregated into small dog and big dog sections, and all dogs inter-mingle. I know small dogs can look like prey to other dogs, and I've read some of the horror stories of small dogs getting killed. Should I not bother bringing her to a dog park, or should I have her on a long line? I really want her to make doggie friends, but I am not sure if it's worth the risk.
