Dog showing to much dominance!

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
