if you are planning on going to the dog park for the first time, i would suggest you don't take a very small breed! i took my little Chihuahua yesterday (march 09, 2009) and he past away that same night from an incident that happened at the dog park that day. I took 2 Chihuahuas and one pit/boxer! My Chihuahua Dash was one year and maybe about 4 pounds. we were there for an hour and everything was fine, all the dogs played and everyone got comfortable. Then all of a sudden 2 large dog came running full speed toward dash and scared him really bad causing him to run away quickly but cry at the same time. That cry set off a lot of dogs at the dog park ( around 10 dogs) and they began to attack him like if he was a rat or a cat! they bit him several times. i would say he had about 6 wounds. by the time i could even get the money to send him to the vet he had already past. his wounds didn't seem that bad but he had a swollen soft spot near his chest and stomach i think he was internally bleeding .. it was a very bad experience going to the dog park for my fist time. BE CAREFUL IF YOU DO GO WITH A SMALL DOG!

Don't you mean "passed away". Also if any other dogs attacked my dogs I would line them up and torture those bastards and hang their owners by a tree.

Sorry to hear. Did any of the other dogs owners say anything? Is there a leash requirement?

I am SO sorry for your loss... that is so tragic. We have been several times and have never had a problem. (however, I do have a big dog.)

Ft. Worth has a great dog park that has a fenced, smaller section (but still a good size) for dogs under 30 lbs. That's a good idea, IMO.

It's an off-leash dog park. The dogs are fenced in and can run & play. My dog adores it; it's his "happy" place.
