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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Jake is neutered and lipstick shows with really good butt scratch which seems kinda iffy behavior on my part as scratcher.Also lipstck shows when he is really INTENSE during training/learning session which helps me know when he really WANTS to learn a behavior.NEVER seen a glimpse when heeling??

It frequently makes an appearance.

Is this the same as an erection?
Unless my boys are canine versions of John Holmes, believe me, when a dog has an erection, you KNOW he's had an erection!!! It's nothing like that meek little "lipstick" that peeks out every now and then.

I hope this is your really bad attempt at humor

My neutered boy sometimes does the lipstick thing. I consider it "airing out his junk". I equate it with how sometimes you just feel better after a shower... he feels better after airing his junk for a few minutes every so often.


It's not often but it happens.

haha, this thread is hilarious. It's nice to loosen up a bit at the expense of our boys "lipstick". Max, my 11 month old, seems to think he is "Dirk Diggler" cruisin around quite often showing his member off. Had a trainer at the house the other day, and all he did was let it loose for half the time she was there...

My pup likes to sit close to me and sometimes he sits on my feet and I feel a wet sticky lipstick, gross!!!!

The other problem with my over-active lipstick boy is that the kids (5-2years old) ask what it is and I am just not ready to explain the birds and the bees so I just say my generic response "its just Oso"

I am so glad that he isn't alone in his overactive lipstick airing out or whatever you want to call it.

Osito - well it is not birds and bees - it's not sexually related. It's just the sheath being a little too small. So your explanation is right on.
