Yesterday my daughter took our 3 dogs to the dog park. We take Dexter into the small park because he gets along with small dogs and I dont want to take my small dogs into the big dog side.

My daughter said that a small terrier started mounting my 5 yr old neutered maltipoo (hes 10 pounds) and that Dexter our 5 month old GSD would go and stand over them both until the terrier would stop and then leave.

She said this happened at least 3 times. She said dexter wouldnt stand over the terrier unless he was mounting our maltipoo and she thinks Dexter was being protective.

I know that 5 months old is too young to have protection instincts over his pack so what is Dexter doing and should I allow it or not?
