And I quote:
Isn,t a negitive answer.
No reason to get your panties in a bunch Y.R.:
I have no "vision" but the activity im my opinion isn,t a good judgeing factor of dominance in a pup or a adult i,ve seen it in litters as well as weak adults. There are far better markers to judge dominance factors. IMHO.

| thanks FOR MAKING that clear|
no one here said it was a factor of Determining dominance. I just thought I missed something I need to know about.
I would not want GUYGSD to think anyone was referring that it is a bad fault and that his dog was crazy or needed to be put on meds.
It is not is a negative not a positive.
I did not get any panties in a wad....just want it made clear that we were not testing a pup ..just making talk on the db.
Perfectly normal trait as far as I can find..If someone has different knowledge we need to know.
I would say quit giving the dog stuffed toys...go to KONGS< BALLS :and ropes with knots in them...bones, and big Tuff TOYS..

|LOL. I so needed some of these comments today. Nice to laugh on tough days. Yeah.....my group is pretty spoiled. They have kongs, freebies,, ropes, squeakers, teethers, rags, bones, in addition to God only knows how many stuff stuff animals. When I go to Dallas, I am normally by myself, so I go to an arcade. Most of my prizes are for the dogs. Rose's favorite is a tiger bigger than she is. Barron (my grown male GSD), likes the 6 foot flamingo.|

Normal puppy behavior. PUPPY behaviour ?? Mine's never grown out of trying to hump anything and everything - including air humping - when he's in that mood. He'll be ten just before Xmas. 10 YEARS, that is.

haha, YR, I didn't think they needed meds. The ones who have done this all grew out of it, as most do. Though there is another forum I'm part of, a woman said her little dog still does this (I think he's a few years old now) to his stuffed toys all the time.....and I won't go on to say what else happens, but oh my word.....

I would not worry about it.. I have a very dog aggesive dominate Jack russell/Beagle mix that will try to attack then hump. I got her at about 4 months old and she was so messed up I have no clue what happened to her in her short life. However humping on stuffed toys does not sound like a dominance thing.
