Small Dogs in The Big Dog Area at the Park

The more I read and observe at the dog park, the more I think having small dogs in the big dog area is a bad idea. Dogs are predators. And I have witnessed some big dogs stalking small dogs at the park. I have also witnessed a pack of large dogs chasing a small dog at the park. It may have been fun and games, BUT if just one of those larger dogs perceived the small dog as prey….then there could be trouble. The article I have linked here explains more about the prey drive. Please keep your dog safe at the park!
