Let's discuss dog parks for a moment. I have had the pleasure of taking care of one of my "old man dogs" for the past week and a half. I see him for breakfast and dinner and each time we visit the dog park because that's where he does his business. He is a gentle soul - a 90 lb (give or take) lab/shepherd mix. He excitedly enters the park, pees, and then makes his round to all of the human people to say hello. He doesn't engage much with other dogs except for a few sniffs here and there.
During this particular stint with him, I will have walked him 23 times. That means 23 times at the park. I have met great people, great dogs, and even made some business contacts. I have however seen some things that are questionable. Well, questionable is very vague. I question the common sense of some people and THAT is questionable. Every dog park has a set of rules. These rules are posted outside of the park, completely visible to anyone that is entering. They even used to have a sign with a picture of a dog with his back to you showing his giant hairy testicles to say "Dogs must be neutered to enter". The rules at each dog park don't vary much - They are essentially just stating the obvious. This is the actual list of rules from the park that I am speaking of:
