as it does me. I have never had a dog accept it when my dog objects, no matter how hard they object, they just come right back. Also when there is no play involved and the dog just randomly starts humping mine.I think som' dogs become habitual with it since they lack other social skills. Its like the only way they know how to interact. Reminds me of the person that bear hugs you before an introduction. Very annoying. |
Perhaps I've had too many serial humpers attack us. I have had dogs I physically could not pry off of Scooter on multiple occasions.
For the MOST part people are pretty understanding of the humping. Mikey humps every female he plays with for the first few minutes of the first meeting. And when they tell him to stop he will-Asia-one of his friends gets humped by everyone and she will tell them to stop.
IMO I've found that when the dog says 'stop' the other dog will listen-whereas when an owner tries to stop it they just get back into it.
But anyways that's probably not universal-just what I've seen.
And so many people think their dog is gay or what have you-*eye roll*
And some dog owners don't recognize ANY play. Luckily we haves lots and lots of regulars at the dogpark and I do see people learn. There was this couple bringing a very young pitt puppy and sooo over protective-a dog would sniff the pup and they'd be scooping it up. But they kind of hung around our group and everyone was letting them know what their pup and the other dogs were doing was very appropriate and normal-and now I see them all the time-their dog happily playing and the owners are relaxed. So sometimes they wise up-not always though
