I keep mulling this playgroups thing over, and also looking at the photos posted by BARCS' Bully Crew of lots of pit bulls playing.
Was wondering how the leader of the session selects dogs for the groups and how/when they intervene when/if something happens.
I know that up at Harford County Humane they've kenneled multiple dogs together for years, of all age, shape, breed type, and they always had a surprisingly high success rate doing that ... meanwhile, some of us put two dogs together in homes, live with them OK for years, and then end up with fights one day over seemingly minor conflicts, others take dogs to dog parks and end up having problems.
So do they take a lot of care selecting the right dogs? Are they just using people particularly good at managing dogs to oversee these groups? Or is there some other element that goes into this?
