This is what I believe happened. When you bring your dog into the first enclosure to unleash; all the dogs that are already on the park are ganging up in front o the gate barking and anxiously waiting to meet you and your dog. It's not unusual. It's possible Luca was overwhelmed right off the bat and felt threatened or just over exited and the dog he got jnto it with was a victim of circumstance. That's why I was kinda standoffish with the owner of te other dog. For all I know their dog may have triggered it. Either way I'm on the spot cause regardless of who started it; Luca was finishing it.
    Kind of thought this would be close to the reason.... public dog parks are just a mess and an accident waiting to happen. having worked at a dog daycare for 4 years, what you describe we had to supervise and regulate every dog entering the play area all day long. Dogs in the area are trained to stay away from the gate as the new dog enters and once entered and the gate is closed the pups knew, play was on. Now, there is NEVER perfection there were dogs that needed to be walked into the area on leash regardless of the gate activity - why, because it is just how they were, coming in full throttled did not work. My point is, public dog parks are not a safe environment because 9 owners out of 10 do not in any way understand dog behavior and think what happen that day with your boy and the other pup is because one of them is aggressive or out of control....may be one of them is, but good chance, no they aren't they were just being a dog and reacting to over excitement or one of them said 'hello' the wrong way.... there is no real leadership because most are not paying any attention to their dog until something happens. Basically, it is 'Lord of the Flies'

    It is great you are doing more training with Luca, it never hurts, but please do not be so hard on yourself or Luca....
