2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

|Subject: Muzzle for the dog park? Thu Nov 14, 2019 2:07 pm|| |
Our boy is 2.5 years now. We frequented dog parks when he was growing up but at about 1 he starting attacking dogs and biting so we haven't been in the last year and a half. He's got a few dog friends so he's not completely anti social. I think he just gets frustrated when a dog doesn't want to play with him the way he wants to play.
Our trainer told us "he just may never be a dog park dog". It's sad because his greatest joy is being around other dogs and playing with them. I asked our trainer about putting a muzzle on him for the park and the trainer thought that was "unfair" to him. But a friend told me they saw 2 huskies from 2 different owners at a park with muzzles recently that were playing nicely and having a blast. So I am reconsidering trying one.
Anyone have similar experience or opinions?

I have lost my enthusiasm for dog parks. All it takes is one bad apple to attack your dog and make them dog averse permanently. As for a muzzle, I use a muzzle on one of my guys pretty much full time (he attacks my other guy, is highly reactive if accidentally wakes from sleep and I have a young grandchildren.) Because he wears a muzzle, it is my responsibility to protect him since he cannot protect himself. For us, that means mostly stray dogs or coyotes. Which means I have to be with him when he's outside. At a dog park, you are at the mercy of other owners. Dogs attack quickly, some viciously and breaking up a dog fight can be hazardous - several of us here have had incidents where we ended up bloodied, some with stitches, me with a couple of infections. I wouldn't do it. Stick with the doggy friends you know and trust.

I think 99% of squirts problems have to do with being attacked by a loose pit bull at a campground. Before that she went to the dog park daily. Ive got several scars from breaking up fights. My thoughts on dog parks is just dont do it. If he has doggy friends stick with them. And if you want 1000 reasons not to go to a dog park watch the people's court or judge judy .
On the muzzle i have considered putting both my girls in one to try to get things back to normal but what stops me is what happens with the 2 boys when the girls go after each other.
I knew someone with a doberman that was a biter and they were given the choice of putting the dog down or pulling all its teeth.
