About twice a week I take Timber to his "girlfriends" house so they can play and wear out eachothers energy. Everything has gone great up until today.
After about 5 minutes of play, he started mounting her (front and back). I could tell Liz wasnt exactly amused by it and slowly and surely she started changing her demeanor with him. She no longer wanted to play and would lay down against the fence so that he couldnt do it. Then she would growl a little and show some teeth. I was just observing wondering if I should do something or if I should allow Liz to be the one to tell him no.
I ended up walking over to Timber and putting his leash back on him so that everytime he tried to mount her, I could tell him "off".
To me it wasnt a dominate mounting but I could be wrong. His little wanger would come out along with the humping and he looked like he was ready to get busy if she would allow him to.
However, he is only going to be 5 months old next month, so I dont know.
What is the best way for me to handle this? I dont want Timber to get the wrong idea that this behaviour is okay and Im not going to keep putting Liz through that torture. She was getting really upset with him.
Thanks

Max does this with his girl, shes an Afghan hound, but he only does this before she leaves or at the end of the date, been doing it for a few years, the Afghan doesnt mind, but when Max tries this with with Heidi, she turns he head and shows teeth, he backs away and stops, i would let the female tell him to stop, she may nip him once or twice, but he`ll get the message

Liz should corrected him. If she won't, it is up to you to let him know it is unacceptable behavoir.
I think you handled it the right way. If he continues then you may have to give firmer corrections.
