Imagine you are taking a young child to a haunted house. You know that nothing bad is really going to happen, people in masks and makeup are going to jump out at you and try and scare you, and you know it is all just in good fun. However, to the child, it wasn't so much fun. They are terrified, screaming, and trying to get away. Most normal parents look at that child and realize they aren't having a good time, this is too scary for them and you either need to come back by yourself at a later time or help your child realize it's not so scary. You don't spank the child, scream at them, or jerk them around to make them get through it because you want to. You do the reasonable thing to help the child work through it so they aren't traumatized by the experience. Unfortunately, people don 't show the same courtesy to our canine friends. We expect them to stay in the dog park because we want them to. People expect them to enjoy being in a public space with other dogs and people because people want it and they better act like the ideal dog we all strive to have. Even more unfortunate, people try to make them behave no matter how they are feeling no matter the consequences.
Behavior issues in dogs are widely misunderstood. People focus just on the surface of what they are seeing and not understanding what is actually happening. Y
