I'll be honest, I don't care if you use a dog park to hang out and socialize. Be careful, know who you're dealing with, and know when to leave. Arnold was a DP dog as a puppy and so were my Malinois as puppies. Before long it was no longer an appropriate option. Sometimes I really do wish it was a good option for my dogs, especially on days where I am exhausted and I just want to sit back and have my dogs exercise themselves, but I just don't trust strangers and my dogs aren't really play-with-strange-dog dogs.

That said, as much as you are offended by people telling you DPs are wrong, I find it extremely offensive and ignorant to presume those who don't do DPs somehow have dogs who never see the light of day. Please choose your counter argument a bit more clearly, there are countless alternatives to dog parks if you use you're active with your dogs. (There was even a thread on PBF about it called something like "show your pit bull interacting with the world")

As for Baloo, stop taking him until the behavior is reworked unless you can control the situation. Don't set him up for failure. I need to reread the OP before offering any advice though.
