In view of my TD in this question regarding Dog Parks...
I am interested to see how many people think as I do and how many the opposite. I realise that I am UK and maybe dog parks in the US are slightly different, but in general my opinion is as I answered.
The crux of my answer was :-
Just because it is an "offleash" park that doesn't mean it has to be.
It also doesn't mean as some people seem to think, that it is ok to just allow your dogs to go steaming up to others without either invitation from those people or without your permission to your dog.
Go there to teach your dog manners. Teach your dog to ignore other dogs and be able to pass them without having to pile into them and play. A well trained dog does not leave their owner and go running off to others unless invited.
Drives me totally nuts that people assume it is "ok"... and it drives me even more nuts when people assume that is what an offleash park is for... It isn't.
Not saying a dog shouldn't play at times with others, but it is on your say so and with a couple of dogs that will be ok and vice versa.
I am sort of expecting opinions to be split into two groups and kind of know who would be in which, but do want sincere opinions.
