Dog Boner

As a new shepherd owner- he is a handsome 12 month old- why do these dogs always have boners when sitting erect- no pun intended!

Re: Dog Boner

Someone will have a better explaination but I don't think it means the same thing in dogs as it does in humans. My boys always seemed to get them over thing like tasty smelling food or a fun toy.

Re: Dog Boner

luc always used to get those while we doing obed. in the park.

no idea if this is silly or not, but i was told that in some dogs, the pressure from sitting in that position causes an erection. is that true - ????? - can't say, but it's one theory i guess.

Re: Dog Boner

We do not say "boner", we say "he's taken his lipstick out".
We have a female- so it's doesn't... wait for it.. come up much.

I have always wondered the same thing though- what the rhyme or reason was I mean.

Re: Dog Boner

lipstick is different than erection. i'm not sure what the OP is referring to. either way, i very rarely see my dogs lipstick, and just once in 9 months have i felt that he had an erection.

i will thank God for this in my prayers tonight.

Re: Dog Boner

Several years back my vet explained that the prucipice was a bit too snug for my dog's penis. A couple of solutions were offered: 1. use a lubricant like KY jelly and slip it back in (it will get sore if continually exposed to air) 2. have an operation to snip the side of the prucipice (sp) to allow it to work better. I chose 1. and thought that if any one asked in the check out line, I'd probably get arrested!

Re: Dog Boner

When my vet used the word "extrude", I thought that was a nice term. Since my dogs have been neutered, I hardly ever see them extruding. But I know what you mean. They'd be sitting there pretty as a picture with that little bit of pink showing.

Re: Dog Boner

Ozzy's lipstick makes an appearance when he gets very excited about playing or seeing someone he really likes.

It frequently makes an appearance.

Is this the same as an erection?
