How can I avoid a dog fight?
Learn the 4P Warning Signs:
Posture: A dog’s body language can communicate fear, hostility or submission. Learn to respond to your own dog’s body language and others. Growling and the showing of teeth, for instance are signs to be aware of.
Packing: More than two or three dogs behaving as if they’re in a pack can lead to trouble. Break it up before it starts by leading your dog to a neutral area at least 30 feet away.
Possession: Whether it’s you or a ball, most dogs will protect what is theirs. Remain aware.
Provoking: If your dog is continuously annoying another dog (s) it’s time to leave the park.
