Grimm, astoundingly, does GREAT at a dogpark! (Who knew??) After the first initial coronary the other dog suffers as a result of Grimm's waaaayyy too intense, extreme, and abrupt greeting.... everyone is totally happy and fine. Never a dog fight, never a snark. Waggy, sniffy, dance-y mutual explorations, then "Lets go gallump and be crazy over here!" "No, over here!" "Okay, then over here!" etc.

Grimm has met at a dogpark: Anxious, nervous, whiny rescues with difficult pasts, easily-insulted terriers, and dominant, pushy overbearing boss dogs. His approach is terribly abrupt, but all the others dogs actually do in fact react fine to Grimm.

Grimm van den Heuvel, "Donnerpratzen"

i have never had one that would have done well at a dog park. i think they are good for some dogs and people, but unfortunately you always have stupid dog owners and things can happen. if i thought everyone had their dogs under verbal control and were well trained i would try one. but its not a perfect world, and knowing what most dog parks are like i would rather not put myself or my dogs in that situation. even if you started this as a puppy i would still be leary of other dogs and owners and something happening in the young impressionable stage, which as we know can lead to dog aggression later. the atmosphere is just to uncontrolled for me. i think most gsd's are happy interacting with their owners and playing with their own pack. my dogs have a few individual friends that the walk with but could care less about playing with them.
