What should I do if a dog fight occurs?
A dog fight can be violent and is upsetting to everyone present. It is important to remember that an injured dog may bite anyone nearby. Follow these steps if a fight occurs: • Remain calm. Even the calmest, most pleasant person may become upset, angry or belligerent if they or their dog is injured in a fight. Emotional behavior is automatic; try to remain calm and as objective as possible. • Owners/handlers of the dogs involved in the fight should immediately help to break it up. • Never reach your hands out into the middle of a dog fight. You may get bitten, and often by your own dog. • Distract the dogs and divert their attention. A blast of water from a water bottle or a loud whistle might work. • If your dog is not involved in the fight, maintain control of him/her and make sure that he/she does not join in. Remove your dog to a neutral area. • When warranted, exchange contact information with other dog owners. If you are unable to because you must attend to your dog, designate someone else to get the information. Remember, owners are solely liable for injuries or damage caused by their dogs. This includes injury to another dog or person, no matter how it began.

Friends of the East Rumbrook Dog Park was formed to support the East Rumbrook Dog Park. We pay for and stock all of the bag dispenser stations stocked throughout the year.
