Barking at the Dog Park
Our Coton (Bode) just turned 1 year old last week. We have started to take him to our local dog park every afternoon after we get home from work to let him socialize with other dogs. The first few times we took Bode to the dog park he did great, played with other dogs and was thoroughly exhausted when we go home.
Now that we have taken him a few times he has developed this strange habit where he will bark at the bigger dogs across the fence (the area is divided into bigger and smaller dog play areas). It has gotten to the point where he will play with the other puppies for maybe 5 minutes and then spend the rest of the time barking at the fence. Any suggestions on what may be wrong and how to stop the barking? We want him to have a good experience at the dog park but it almost seems like it stresses him out to be there.
