Working in the dog park is very distracting.. 🙄 .
His focus and recall around other dogs is improving! He’s a very well mannered and behaved dog around other dogs. I love the dog park I feel like it’s helped Zeus with his over excitement around other dogs on the lead in ways. He’s more calm and doesn’t bother with them as he knows he gets his play dates with loads of different dogs every week. He’s made friends! Although dog parks do have down sides .. for example Zeus was getting harassed by this Dalmatian, the dog kept jumping on him and wouldn’t even let him stand. It would jump on his back and smash him to the ground as soon as he got up and I let it happen but after about 5 minutes I could see Zeus was struggling and didn’t like it he was started to gently snap at the other dogs collar and making squealing noises. The lady kept laughing.. I tried getting her dog off mine as she didn’t do anything but it didn’t get off so I asked her to get him off nicely and she just called her dogs name and then left it at that. Her dog then went back and started pinning him down standing on him trying to be dominant, it ripped his bandana off and was bulldozing Zeus over every time he would try and get up. I had to end up putting Zeus on his lead and having him sit next to me up on the bench as it wouldn’t leave him alone and was hurting his hips. Zeus is way too gentle natured to fight off another dog and he doesn’t know what to do in situations like this, he doesn’t stick up for himself. He’s such a baby but owners like this frustrate me! clearly my dog did not like it and it wasn’t playing. #zeus #z #gsd #gshepherd #germanshepherd #germanshepherdofinstagram #germanshep #germandog #germanboy #shep #instadogs #insta #instadaily #wolf #bear #hyena #cute #germanshepherdinsta #follow #followers #like #followpup #germany #gsdofinsta #followzeus #germanshepherdcommunity #germanshepherdpuppy #Z
