Last to times at dog park took Logan only cause Triton might re injured his paw, Logan was a good boy without his brother, no fights

Tonight i took both together, after 10mins fine until a dog like turner and hooch but grey and about year old was chasing dogs and ran right into Logan to a dead stop. Logan took this as a fight and latched on to him as i yanked him off. The other dog started to chase and play again while Logan watched him on his leash.i waited until he lost interest then let him off. another ten mins go by then Logan meets up and starts to make other dog back up then run and Triton gets in on it, I,m booted to catch Logan watching this happen. before I reach Logan too late on top of him biting.

I only see two options muzzle or bad to say but shock collar

Third option, do not take Logan to the dog park. He is a dog that should not be there.

DO NOT use a shock collar to try to stop a fight, it WILL make it worse. The dog being shocked will assume the other dog is inflicting the pain and fight harder.

sounds like Logan is a bit of a bully ;) - I sympathize, since the Pudden can be a bit of a bully over toys, too, when things get too exciting at the dog park. I deal with it by not going at busy hours or leaving when other dogs are there that she's likely to have a snippet with. The added adrenaline rush at the park can make reactive dogs even more reactive.

hes alright without brother there, I would never use a shock collar to stop a dog fight thats what your arms are for and fingers. he just has to be corrected before he puts dog down, you would use it when he is chasing dog, to snap him out of it before he over powers other dog. he,s 120lbs

If he is aggressive towards other dogs you should not be taking him to the dog park. It's not fair to the other dogs and thier owners.

he just got fixed 5 months ago so he has to be retrained. I kept him out of dog park since he was around 1 and half.He,s been on testosterone for 2 and half years. this is his 4th or 5th time back since fixed

its the dogs mostly that have no confidence, this sometimes from bad owners.who mistreat dogs,


My two never yelled at or touched, you can swing like your going to hit them and they start wagging tail

Personally I would work with a behaviorist if you want to take him to parks where other dogs are at play. In a dog park, there will be bumping and playing with toys from the other dogs and if you dog doesnt like the bumping or is toy possessive then he shouldnt be out there until you work on it.

I agree, you should not take him to the dog park. I've stopped going to the dog park for just the opposite reason. My Ike is a target. No matter the day, dogs, or time, Ike gets turned on. I'm assuming it's his auro or scent that precedes him. He's a happy, energetic, neutered, non dominant male who just wants a friend...but for some reason, other dogs do not like him. I've had to build friendships over time with neighbors dogs before I can trust that dog to play nicely with Ike.

There have only been 2 exceptions for Ike. A female Collie who he's grown up with and an older Golden who lives in our neighborhood. All other dogs go after him, he's been bitten once, or try to ignore him and will growl at him to tell him to 'go away'.

If I were at the dog park with Max, and there was a dog acting like you describe, I'd have no problem asking you to leave. That's no place for a dog with issues.

But you know he is going to act that way, so you should not take him in.
