Doug Nashville, Tennessee 2/10/2013 11:29:49 AM We took out pit mix puppy to the east Nashville dog park shortly after getting her. She lives to play with other dogs! We were not aware of the ban until later. Once we entered the park and turned her loose, a doberman and german shepherd promptly attacked her, as she rolled over in submission. Where the owners were, we had no idea. My wife and I came to our pup's rescue, and my wife obtained a bite on the hand from the shepherd while trying to grab our dog. (Fortunately, the skin was not broken, but she obtained a bruise and swelling). This just demonstrates irresponsible dog owners are the issue, not particular breeds. We vowed never to go back to a dog park again. We pay to take our dog to a doggie daycare 2 days a week so she can play and be part of a pack. She passed the temperment tests with flying colors, and has been going there for lamost one year, with no issues of any kind. Doggie daycares test dogs before accepting them, so undisciplined, aggressive breeds of all kinds are not accepted. Yes, it costs money, but at least we know she's safe.
