I'm not sure this is really a question just a little vent or Oh Boy to share. Well Fletcher is growing up and humping things.....I so far have tried to distract him for doing it HOWEVER, apparently it is contagious because my older dog has joined in. Eddie is a poodle who is 12, but he was not neutered until he was 5 and my husband didn't stop him from this behavior either (before we were together) so he will occasionally pick up one of the kid's stuffed animals. But I take it from him, and doesn't happen often. But now I have 2 dogs humping each other!!!! Nice.....ummmmm In the yard they think the coast is clear or something because_______________ I'm finding it harder to distract them both. I realize this could be a dominance issue. Well, ok it is a dominance issue. Eddie is very laid back, and very easily going to be the #2 dog in the house. Fletcher is a puppy so...to be expected but why can't they choose another behavior to express their dominance issue? They have no obvious issues together, seem to get along fine. PUPPIES ARE FUN!!!!! I'm going to continue to distract them and give them both something better to do. I made mini-doggie popsicles this morning I'm sure those will come in handy later today.
Oh the crazy life I have, I wouldn't have in any other way.
