A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

We just took Cooper on an 8 hour trip down to Ohio to visit our son and our two granddogs. Cooper was great during the long ride, unfortunately, during our stay, he continued to "hump" the younger dog (Both are neutered). He did this when they visited us, as well. We just can't break him of that. Any suggestions?

Quinn used to do this to Gracie and he still does sometimes. Both are neutered, but as Jan said, it's really a dominance behavior. Gracie actually humps her giant stuffed bear!! Anyway, I agree with Jan. I just give a couple of Ach! Ach! and distract Quinn with something else.. a toy, a good scratching, a walk to a different room... He has gotten way better with time and now it usually takes just a quick verbal redirection to get him to stop.

When my older dog does this to the younger (both spayed females), I just break it up.  It is non-sexual, dominance behavior.  I just break it up, that seems to work.  Good luck!
