How can I get my Coton de Tulear to play at the dog park?
We have a wonderful 4 year old Coton de Tulear who is such a joy to me and my husband. When a new dog park opened nearby recently we thought it would be a perfect opportunity for Sammy to meet other dogs and people since he’s mostly just home with the 2 of us.
It’s a beautiful off-leash park with lots of friendly people and playful dogs his own size, but he seems to be the only dog who doesn’t want to play. All the other dogs are running around happy as can be and Sammy just stands there. As soon as another dog comes near to check him out, he tries to hide behind me.
He’s always friendly to other dogs he meets at the Vet, groomer, and out on walks, so we don’t understand why he’s different at the dog park. Does anyone have any ideas on how we can get our Coton to relax and have fun with the other dogs at the dog park?
