A dog owner shares his experience at a dog park.

Apparently, he isn't alone in facing the issue.
It's a problem faced by other dog owners as well.
Some dog parks have blatant rules.
Every dog park will have rules about letting children plan in the dog park.
This is actually a good idea.
Dog parks aren't zoos for kids.
Parents should just bring children to places where their kids won't be at risk.
As long as children are with their parents watching the dogs from outside the park, it's okay.
Sadly, even if it's the parent's who break the rules, it'll still be the responsibility of the owner if their dogs become aggressive.
The original poster (OP) needs to check his local laws.
Although most people agree that the OP isn't in the wrong, some people believe that both parties had faults.
At least, he's now aware that his dog can potentially be dangerous.
It's always best to be in control of the dog when playing outdoors.
What a nice suggestion!

Even if the OP is in the right, it's always better to be on the safe side so that he can protect his dog.
Some moms can be irresponsible.
Dogs are being put down because of irresponsible parents.
Both sides have responsibilities.
A legit objective opinion.
The mom needs to watch her child and the OP needs to keep his dog from getting aggressive.
We all adore our canine companions. A dog is, after all, a man's best friend.
However, our dogs occasionallymisbehavey or, worse, harm other people. A dog bite is a serious case for which we are ultimately responsible as dog owners.
We hope this mom will take her daughter to some other place and actually keep an eye on her and that the dog owner doesn't encounter such a bad experience anymore.
