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.

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.

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?

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.

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

|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.|

I don't blame your puppy, the poodles are in your space, barking and jumping around, this type of initial meeting is not polite and would annoy even the most stablest of dogs. Your puppy mounting is just trying to dominate the boisterous one and tell it to calm down. However, it is not your puppies job to do this, you might want to nip this in the bud (which sounds like you are getting on top of) otherwise could become more of a problem.
I think you are being too polite to the neighbour, I would tell him he does not seem to have voice control over his dogs as they rush you and your puppy and this is what is causing the initial chaos, tell him to keep his dogs on lead or train his dogs for better obedience.

|katieliz||oh your neighbor is full of hot air. no you are not oversensitive, but what you do need to do is make sure you're not around where this person lets his dogs loose, as much as you possibly can. any leash laws where you are? you in a condo or appartment without your own property? ugh, i dislike irresponsible dog owners. if his dogs run up to someone someday and their dog in on lead but not friendly, his dogs could be hurt very badly. lots worse than a little bit of humping. no, there's no degree of humping that indicats a real problem. the real problem is irresponsible, inconsiderate owners. jmho.|
