dogs playing in park

While Cesar encourages everyone to exercise their dog on a regular basis, he also reminds you to keep in mind that a good pack leader maintains leadership even at the dog park. Here are 5 tips Cesar has for dog owners who want to demonstrate good pack leadership.

1. Make sure your dog is spayed or neutered, has all her shots, and is in good health.

Under no circumstances should you bring a sick dog to a dog park!

2. Do not use the dog park as a substitute for the walk!

If you drive to the park, leave your car a block away and take your dog on a vigorous walk of at least thirty-five minutes to drain some of her energy. Never take an over-excited dog to the park.

3. While at the park, don’t “punch out” on your calm-assertive leadership.

Be aware of your dog at all times, and take responsibility for her behavior. Don’t forget to pick up after her!

4. A calm-submissive dog will not attract another dog’s aggression…

…but an excited dog, a weak, timid dog, or an aggressive dog can become a fight-magnet.

5. Know your dog!

If your dog has poor social skills, is overly fearful or is dog aggressive, or if you have not yet established your calm-assertive leadership with your dog, find a more controlled way to introduce her to the company of other dogs, such as “play dates” with one or two other dog owners.
