    I would like to know the protocol to use if someone brings an aggressive dog to the dog park to play in the unleashed area, and refuses to take the dog out of the unleashed area after starting a fight and hurting other dogs. One of the boxers was not neutered. This happened on Friday, Feb. 25th at 4:30 p.m. 8 other dogs owners came to the park and the boxers would not allow anyone else in the park without a fight at the front gate. Everyone else moved to the small dog park even though their dogs were over 20 lbs. The young man and his aggressive dogs kept everyone else out of the big dog park for over an hour. There needs to be a way to bring authorities to the park when needed. Please advise.

    God bless,

    I’ve sent this to someone at Parks. They should be in touch with you or post an answer here.

    Our park has that rubber type stuff. I love it beuacse he’s less likely to get hurt on it if he falls.Amy – So many people say that. It’s really noticeable when they are in a picture together! And we miss you all too!
