Pit Bull thuggish behavior at the dog park







Some lady brought her pit bull to the dog park and it was running around growling and snapping at all the other dogs at the park. Whilst all this is going on,  she and a man who's standing on the small dog side are paying no mind to the thuggish behavior of the Pit Bull.










I'm sitting within ears reach of them and he's giving her tips on how to handle her dog and how he may have just had a bad handler in the past, meanwhile the dog is biting other dogs backs and snouts and they're just gabbing away.










I saw at least 5 unprovoked attacks while I was there.










The dog never got aggressive at my dog but my dog was clearly giving off the "don't you fucking dare!" growl when it came over towards us.










I didn't have any weapons on me, just a sack of dog turds I was ready to smear on the dogs face if it locked jaws on me or my dog.










Anyways. ...I made it home safe










The other dogs at the park were a treeing coon hound,  German Shepherd, two collies a mut, and my standard poodle

Some lady is stupid for bringing that dog to the dog park.







Next.

I wonder how much exagguration was put into that story based on the looks of the dog...

Dogs growl and snap at each other at dog parks.  It is often how they play.  Must have been 40 dogs at the park yesterday, dogs snapping all over the place.  You can tell when it is more than that.  

Yes with a pit I'd be more diligent than just about any other breed, but no dogs were bitten, no fighting occured, so really you're reporting standard every day dog interactions at the dog park but it was a pit and that made you nervous so you had to tell us about it.  Cool story bro.

Dog park.

I just leave when the aggressive dogs show up. Life is too short, especially for my dog. That being said, there's a difference between aggressive and rambunctious. We've made friends with lots of dogs that came bounding into the dog park and wanted to chase every dog and sometimes knock them over and grab whatever toys I was holding. Then they chilled out and acted slightly more civilized. They were just starved for exercise and social activity, not inherently vicious. And my dog has learned to tolerate this style which is less refined and self-contained than her own.



But when there's a fight within ten seconds of a new dog arriving, it's not likely that the afternoon is going to get better. We're out.




You should always have a weapon on you at the dog park. I have heavy gloves, a mace (ball throwing stick) and a flail (tug rope with handle). And two guns. Most importantly I pay attention. I'm there for my dog, not to pawn her off on other people while I play Words with Friends on my smart phone. It seems the people with the worst dogs just want to sit on the bench and do their own thing while their dog runs wild.

I mostly agree. I go only when it's raining heavily because that makes my back yard unusable and my dog loves rain and snow. That weather tends to keep the riff raff away from the dog park and you might run into one or two people with well-mannered working breed dogs.

Dog parks suck.  I bring my gsp on occasion, but leave as soon as there is even a glint of aggression issues.  Otherwise it is a good way to fuck up a perfectly good dog.

Back in 2013, Bimba and I were at the dog park where we met a a pit bull that growled at me.

As soon as that dog growled at me, Bimba charged and bit the pit bull.  The owner was a rather ugly looking young woman with tattoos.  She kept screaming at me and the more she yelled.at me the more pissed off Bimba became.

It is a good thing that Bimba listens to me and that I was able to call her off.

I'm just describing how the normal stuff I'm carrying anyway could be used to break up a fight non-lethally. The gloves have come in handy at least twice for that. And on countless occasions the rope has given some rambunctious dog something to grab on to when they're wanting to say hi but they don't know how, and I prefer that to them chomping on me or my dog.

I'm not saying that its wrong you carry that stuff but if my local dog park was that outta control where it required me to bring multiple pieces of equipment to break up fights and 2 guns on top of that, I probably would be finding a new dog park... if not a trail of some sort.

if i had to guess his dog also likes  the "mace / ball throwing stick", as he probably uses it to fling the tennis ball. his dog may even like to play with the "flail". as for the gloves, i have no idea? this is just what i gathered from the cool story, bro.

i have no need for the dog park, but i still take mine a few times a week. dog park about 3 miles from home, always hot ass women in short shorts, my dogs act like a 5 year old at their birthday party the whole time they are there.
seems like a win, win, win for all involved.

I admit... I first read it as:  "heavy gloves, mace, rope and 2 guns"  lol

it makes more sense to me now...  still 2 guns at a dog park might be excessive but w/e, to each their own.

People have been wearing gloves while handling animals with pointy bits for thousands of years. In my case they've come in handy for keeping my hands clean and for protecting my fingers when a dog goes for the rope but too high up and closes on my hand. And then twice while breaking up fights I was glad I had some protection.

Some dogs come from a genetic line that was bred to kill other dogs & people then selectively bred to the most aggressive currently available
other dogs are bred for other reasons including protection obedience and sound temperament.

Situational awareness and being adequately prepared to deal with the worst case scenario is prudent.

I use my local dog park simply for the extra space that I can't provide at home. My back yard is a Border collie playground with several fun activities and obstacles and changes in the landscape that make a ball bounce in odd directions. She loves that game, especially fetch combined with agility moves, but the one thing we can't do here is long flat-out runs.

Oh look, another pitbull thread!

Walking my dog one day, and a woman was walking her pit bull in the opposite direction. As we approached each other on the sidewalk, her dog started going batshit.

She says to me, "Could cross to the other side of the street? I can't control him."

Oh, and the best part... we were standing on the sidewalk right in front of an elementary school.

I'm sitting within ears reach of them and he's giving her tips on how to handle her dog and how he may have just had a bad handler in the past, meanwhile the dog is biting other dogs backs and snouts and they're just gabbing away.


I saw at least 5 unprovoked attacks while I was there.


The dog never got aggressive at my dog but my dog was clearly giving off the "don't you fucking dare!" growl when it came over towards us.


I didn't have any weapons on me, just a sack of dog turds I was ready to smear on the dogs face if it locked jaws on me or my dog.


Anyways. ...I made it home safe


The other dogs at the park were a treeing coon hound,  German Shepherd, two collies a mut, and my standard poodle
 


Now I am not attempting to make any particular point here.  I realize standard poodles can be testy, in a purse swinging kind of way, and they are fairly medium sized companion animals....but ...

She's a big one....78 pounds

The Fuck!!??  I think I see your problem. Seriously!  LOL!!   Dog parks are the absolute worse place to take your dog….. period.

From the look of your dog , I can see why you like hanging out with the other ladies.

Situational awareness and being adequately prepared to deal with the worst case scenario is prudent.

Then they chilled out and acted slightly more civilized. They were just starved for exercise and social activity, not inherently vicious. And my dog has learned to tolerate this style which is less refined and self-contained than her own.

  This right here.

There are several breeds of dogs that were bred to fight other dogs and animals.  There is only ONE dog that was bred for "man work" and that is the Doberman.

Other dogs have been adapted for man work or "protection" but only the Doberman was specifically bred for use against men.

The modern day Doberman is a shadow of what they once were.
