Thanks for the advice. I have a dog trainer who has worked with us on a couple issues and I may get an evaluation. I also have some witnesses from the dog park who have frequently played with my dog. My dog is no alpha, but doesn't take any crap either. she has been attacked on a rare occasion and come out on the losing end. I didn't make an issue of it because dogs will be dogs. minor squabbles happen. it's the nature of the dog and the dog park. an owner and his/ her dog enter at their own risk. since both dogs went after each other at the same time. do u think it's legitimate to say that this is a NO FAULT case. I don't want to go to court, but i will if I have to. thank you.
