im so annoyed. So Max just turned 4 months and got his final shots, so yesterday I started taking him to the park so he can get used to dogs cause right now he is scared and will bark and growl at dogs. However once he meets them he is ok and yesterday he did so well. So we went back today and I have him on a leash and we are walking around the park, seeing things, meeting people and dogs and he is doing so good, still some growling/barking but I can see his progress and once he is there with them he stops. Anyway I go to leave and I notice a guy coming in to the park with a dog on a leash, and this dog is pulling and jumping, crying. I knew right away that wasn’t a dog I wanted Max to meet. So I go around the long way to the parking to avoid crossing paths with this guy and his dog. We are walking down the “ramp” towards the cars and three large dogs are approaching, no big deal, Max is quiet, But then I look over to my right and the guy with the dog on the leash is coming up to all of us and his dog is super crazy. I see what’s about to happen and start turning around to go back up and away from this situation, and one of the large dogs and the dog on the leash get into it, and at this point I’m still trying to get Max up this hill and away but Max is so scared by this fighting he sees he starts barking and crying so loud and pees himself. The large dog approached him which only escalated Max’s barking and crying. I’m still pulling him up and away and we walk up a hill away from everything where these two nice women are with their two older dogs, Max is still barking and crying loudly. I’m trying to get him to settle down, he was so scared . So I sit down on this ledge and just wait for him so see everything is ok, and he does and ends up laying down while I talk to these women and there two dogs are calmly standing there. I stay this way for 5 minutes, I didn’t want to leave the park while he was still very scared, I didn’t want to leave on a bad note. So after he was calm and laying down around those dogs for a little bit I left the park with him. I’m so worried that this will mess up any progress he has made with dogs. I hope I did the right thing by waiting till he was calm and quiet before we left. This is the exact situation I was trying to avoid, and why I didn’t want to come near that particular dog. And when he was away from situation and those dogs he just kept barking and barking, I know he was still Scared but what do I do in that situation? I didn’t want to pet him cause I was worried that it would encourage that behavior, so I sat there calmly and tried soothing him verbally until he calmed down. Did I do the right thing?
