The answer is, it depends on a few factors. I would say dog parks are for experienced dog owners with well socialized dogs. Owners and dogs that are anxious should start with one on one play and slowly add more dogs. This is especially important if you’re contemplating taking your small/toy breed dog to a dog park. Dog owners and dogs that have had limited experience introducing dogs and meeting other dogs, can find a dog park overwhelming. I started K9 Playtime for this sole reason.
