FirstNationalBastard: Good.Now, let's work on keeping the little farkers out of restaurants, airplanes, movie theaters, and generally any other place you don't need a little squalling annoying piece of shiat ruining things because mommy and daddy think the world revolves around them, and don't know how to or don't want to deal with the kid.
EvilEgg: If you have a dog that is in anyway dangerous, it does not belong at the dog park.
coinspinner: Good. Most kids have no idea how to behave at a dog park, and their parents don't do ANYTHING to control them. Last week, I saw some mom dropped her three kids - of which the oldest was 8, tops - in the the dog park and then wandered off to God knows where. The kids proceeded to run around screaming and throwing stuff at unfamiliar dogs. Kids who don't understand boundaries, parents who think their snowflake can do no wrong and unfamiliar dogs do not mix well.
Dinjiin: Sin_City_Superhero: Just leave the booger-eaters at home.I think there are other things on the ground at dog parks that would be more of a concern if eaten than simply nose candy.Mr. Coffee Nerves: Dogs off the leash, kids on.Don't stop there. I think a muzzle would be appropriate, too.brigid_fitch: I'll have to explain to some dipshiat helicopter parent that it's their precious snowflake's fault for not knowing how to act around strange dogs.Welcome to our modern society where everyone else is to blame for somebody's bad parenting. Leave the gate to your back yard open and your neighbor's kid wanders in and ends up face down in your pool? Don't blame the parents, blame (and sue) the guy who left his gate open.Parents are a protected class and that really needs to end. If some kid did that and your dog did bite, not only should you not get a ticket, but the parent of the kid should for failure to control his child.
EvilEgg: If you have a dog kid that is in anyway dangerous unbehaved because you think precious snowflake should be allowed to do whatever they damn well please, it does not belong at the dog park.
Spanky_McFarksalot: EvilEgg: If you have a dog kid that is in anyway dangerous misbehaved because you think precious snowflake should be allowed to do whatever they damn well please, it does not belong at the dog park in existence.fixed
jabbedxorz: I definitely agree with this and hope the trend spreads. Whenever I took my dog to Petsmart and little kids saw her, they run up to her and either pet her nicely or yank on her tail or ears. My dog is a very protective German Shepherd who doesn't allow anyone to touch her ears or tails without getting snapped at. Parents think its cute and dandy until their little sunshine gets hurts, then they blame the dog and the owner for not controlling the dog/preventing their stupid kid from treating an animal like a stuffed toy.
MycroftHolmes: But dogs, even socialized ones, will often growl, snap or nip at other dogs as a way of correcting behavior. This is not dangerous. Kids People w/overblown senses of self-entitlement who treat their yappy little dog like a child do not understand this.
MycroftHolmes: EvilEgg: If you have a dog that is in anyway dangerous, it does not belong at the dog park.Well, that depends on your definition of dangerous. If you mean dangerous as in prone to attacking or biting with full intensity without provocation, I would agree with you. But dogs, even socialized ones, will often growl, snap or nip at other dogs as a way of correcting behavior. This is not dangerous. Kids do not understand this. They will provoke a dog, then claim the dog bit him when the dog nips or snaps at the kid. And then it becomes a major issue.Kids do not belong in a dog park, bottom line.

ph0rk: If kids were banned from more locations, the would would be a better place.
Persnickety: ph0rk: If kids were banned from more locations, the would would be a better place.If by "kids" you mean anyone under the age of 30, yes I agree. Anyone who isn't legally allowed to run for Senate is too immature to be in a public place.
