That's when you need this --> and this
I really think you need to expect a rescued pit bull type dog to have a degree of dog aggression that would make it impossible for off leash romps with most dogs, but there are exceptions and that can be acknowledged after careful assessment of the dog's temperament.

for sanitation/health reasons..and you never know what kind of jerk will show up...I go once in a long while but when someone else shows up I leave...it is not really worth the potential trouble or illness.
ps. ultimately it is the individual owners' choice as to whether or not to frequent dog parks, is it not?
come on, people! mantra or no mantra..."pitbull" bloodlines have been so thoroughly diluted that I am of the personal opinion that you CAN trust the occassional dog not to rip apart your neighbor's terrier.
in other news: I'm tempted to do some sociological studies on pitbull owners.
I'm thinking the dogs aren't the only ones with aggression issues...
Ok Im scared again and I dont want my dog to play with other dogs even ones I know at this point. I dont want to read anymore
I'm sorry you don't know me or my dog. She is not a fighter!
I love the dog park, but haven't been in a while. I know Capone and he has not one ounce of aggression and always does wonderfully around other dogs.
I think we have done the breed some good p.r. at the park.
My point is she is very socialized and loves going to the (off leash) park. Both my dogs start crying when we turn on the street and all the rest of the mile to the park. We have never had an incident and have made several friends there , both human and canine. I feel that if another dog started a fight and she fought back everyone at the park would back us up because they aready know us. Other dogs have tried to start something, on rare occasion, and my dog comes in between my legs, almost like mommy help me. My lab, on the other hand, will put the other dogs in their place and then it's back to play.My girl and I have a pack---
I don't treat her like a pit bull and she doesn't treat
me like a blonde.
Because this breed is in crisis, we're not going to disallow intelligent conversation on how to best own it by going in to a police-state mode of mandatory pit bull ownership -- there are other groups out there that do that quite well, and that's not the path we're going to take.
