Again, here is another aspect of dog safety that sadly gets overlooked by many. Growling dog bitten by bigger dog
Just because its a dog park it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have control of your dog, The Dog Control Act still applies, owners need to have their “Eyes Wide Open” be aware of what is going on around them, then they can stop something bad happening, before it starts.
Dogs do speak to us and each other, if we choose to listen and observe. Dogs communicate via body language and vocal tonation, dog owners need to understand this.
Many people today are just too complacent. If you are taking your dog to a dog park, there are Basic Dog Park Etiquette rules that should and need to be followed because lets face it, you need to stand up and protect your dog.
I personally believe, dog parks should have designated gated areas set aside, one for small dogs and one for big dogs. By doing this, it would reduce the risk of these kind incidents happening.
