yeah these people are crappy dog owners with dogs that are not well socialized.

my 2 solutions would be
1 - Casually ask who are the most aggressive dogs...maybe even jot down a tag license number... Then remind these losers in the most diplomatic way...that the dog park is public...and if your dog gets bitten...you will report them...which means their dog (depending on the rules of the municipality) might be on a list that gets them EUTHANIZED after multiple bites. Also any veterinary costs, as well as formal complaints against them and their dogs, are on THEM. I might also bring bear spray or a water gun for protection...against the dogs OR their loser owners in case something goes wrong.

Gosh I hate hearing stories about unfriendly losers.

2 - Choose another dog park....check facebook for locals with smaller dogs who may want to go with you.

Hope that may help
