I have a 5 yr old Heeler that fixates/chases/herds dogs at the dog park
She normally rolls over and lets other dogs sniff her when we first arrive to the dog park, so I don't believe her behavior to be an issue of dominance. She also will herd our 7 month old heeler that we will also take with us to the park which causes another set of issues entirely. Is this all just related to energy release? She does not respond to me at all when any of this happens. I always end up putting her on a leash and taking her home.

I have a similar problem with my puppy. I work at a camp and he herds the children when we play big group games. He accidentally nipped one of the girls too hard the other day and it made a bruise. Any advice would be appreciated
