Helpful Hints

Prevent a dog fight before it happens by learning these warning signs:

1. posture: a dog’s body language can communicate fear, hostility, or submission. Learn to read and respond to your own dog’s body language, and others.
2. packing: more than 2-3 dogs packed together can lead to trouble. Break it up before it starts by leading your dog to a neutral area at least 30 feet away.
3. possession: whether it’s you, a ball, or a treat, most dogs will protect what is theirs, remain aware.
4. provoking: if your dog is continuously annoying other dogs or provoking attention, it’s time to leave the park
