Dog showing to much dominance!

6 posts in this topic

My 2 1/2 year old black lab is showing what I believe to much dominance. This fall some friends of mine came out hunting and brought a dog that mine has never met before and all he wanted to do was get busy if you know what I mean, just male dogs by the way! Now the other day my friend had just purchased a 5 week old male lab and brought him out to socialize and within minutes he was going for the rear and no cares of what I said. How can i resolve this and stop the embarassment? Thanks

Doubt he'd do that to a male older than he or any female since the alpha female rules the pack (you and your family are your dog's pack, he's at the bottom.) Does he understand NO? Best advice is to firmly establish your dominance. A leash, collar and command to heel would be a good start. Simply lowering the tone of my voice get the huskeys to pay attention.

Good luck, if nothing else at 2.5 he still has maturing to do and so should subside especially when he figures out what hunting is all about!

I chose not to yet since I want to breed him.

That's what I figured (although fixed dogs will hump, too). It's a fact of life with a male dog, especially with an intact male. If you plan on breeding him, I would suggest "Stop" instead of "No" because you will actually want him to do that behavior at some point.

I haven't found a miracle cure yet. I've asked a few trainers and no one seems to have a great answer. I've been using "Stop" and if he's real dead set on it, I'll give him a shot with my knuckle in the front shoulder.

2-and-a-half weeks and mine is getting snipped. Hoping that helps with the issue. If nothing else, it should help stop the wiener drips all over the floor frown

Pretty common. My black lab was fixed and still did it until he was about three. I don't think there is much you can do about it and its pretty natural.

What's mentioned above is correct as well. Older dogs will just take care of themselves and "correct" the younger dog on the behavior for you.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
