blackshep He can't act like your dog is the bad guy here, when he has no control over his dogs.

Have you spoken to him about it? Tell him it's becoming a real issue for you when you are getting mobbed by his dogs. Your dog is still a pup, but he's quickly approaching the age where things start to get serious.

I'm hoping the law will be on your side if one of his dogs were ever injured by yours, just because yours was leashed, while his were not.

It's not fair to you or your dog to have to go through that on a regular basis, but you need to protect your dog in any way you can. Your dog is still developing his social skills at this age, and this could really be setting him back.

additional humping question

My intact 10 month old male has been friends with a spayed female corgi two months older than he is since he was four months old. They have always played rough, taking turns with chasing each other and tripping each other . . . well, ok . . . body slams.

My pup has JUST started humping her and I want it to stop before it gets out of hand. It isn't acceptable in my opinion. (He doesn't hump anything or anyone else.) Is the best way to pull him off and then distract him with a yummy treat and his favorite toy? What happens if he continually ignores me?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

pets4life i know how you feel, their dogs do everything bad then when ur dog responds they flip and deny

it is common amount dog owners, are u friends with this person? If not what if you just tell it to them str8 up unless dogs are allowed off leash there. I would have been upset at them.

DutchKarin I don't know if he was really biting the guys neck. Thank you for your comments. I am trying to get this under control. It is very difficult though if he or other dogs are lose and staying in close. I will continue my work.

The neighbors comment just gets me because same dog used to try to hump my old Aussie all the time and he would say no and then we meet on the trails the next day and he would do it again...

Anyway, I rant, I know in the end I have to get this under control.

JakodaCD OA pets, my chickens do it as well..

pets4life humping is normal but i never heard of them biting the neck while they do it, cats do that lol

maybe he was trying to prevent the dog from moving?

JakodaCD OA personally it sounds like the humping is more of a 'control' act vs a sexual one? (I Hate to use the word dominance)..

Grabbing by the back of the neck can be part of being 'rough' about doing it.

Frankly, if it's not avoidable in the first place, I'd haul his butt OFF the other dog and let him know it was NOT acceptable.

The more he gets away with it, the more he's going to do it.

sarah1366 No humping isn't sign of badness in any form your pups just getting to that age of finding his feet hormones and so on your neighbour talked crap it's also a form of over excitement too and when humping another dog yes they normally do get hold of back of neck not unusual at all but would maybe when around your neighbours dogs keep yours on lead and maybe say to him he shouldn't be allowing his dogs to just run up to anyone's dogs cause one day his dogs will get bitten it's irresponsible of him so yes can understand you been annoyed

Baillif Let's see some pictures of that dutchie. I love dutchies.

volcano Well, you have to stop your dog from humping. If the other guy tries to stop it and gets bit then youre in trouble. If hes letting his dogs run free and come up on you then Id yell at him, even call animal control. But you still cant let your dog hump other dogs.
