This is why I will never take Rex to a dog park. I don’t trust alot of people out there around my dog.

There was a new story going around a month or so ago in my area. They found dog treats that were laced with poison that was hidden in the grass and whatnot. So not only should you be cognizant of toys, but make sure they’re not eating anything off the ground either!

(This also applies to kids.)

That breaks my heart!  You couldn’t pay my dog enough treats to fetch/play with a ball, but this still makes me so nervous!  There are some mean and sick people out in the world 🙁

Hoax. Super hoax. This has been going around for the last couple of years.

@nber0815:  I never go to dog parks. Not only are there a lot of unbalanced dogs (due to poor training) that encourage bad behaviour, but things like this do happen. Someone left a water bottle laying around and my friend’s dog picked it up. He swallowed part of it and ending up dying from internal bleeding and the complications from the surgery she spent $6,000 on.

I’m sure the water bottle wasn’t intentional, but people are just inconsiderate in general. I keep my dog on my own property.

@nber0815:  That’s one of many reasons I live on a farm 😀

@nber0815:  The absolutele best part of owning a house (we bought a few months ago), is our dog loving the backyard. We also lived in a highrise before and hated not having space for him to run around.

yeah this exact same thing showed up in my feed the other day. I think it’s a hoax, but I don’t doubt that it has happened before.

As other PPs have said that story is a hoax. that doesn’t mean it’s not a possibility though.

We love to take our dog to the dog park, but we also know how to act there. We don;t just ignore what our dog is doing, watch what she is sniffing and where she is playing. Our city’s park is under an overpass (great use of land!). this means that we or other park goers have to keep an eye out for trash thrown out of cars. I don’t know how many times we’ve found broken beer bottles in the grass from the local red necks tossing their beer out.
