Dogs who don’t know they’ve been neutered — and how to get them to stop humping.
Eunice Davis of Norwalk, Connecticut, is concerned about her 8-year-old dog, Shadow. “When other dogs come to visit,” she says, “the first thing he does is try to hump” them. She is confused because he is neutered and wonders if it’s “a dominance thing” since it doesn’t matter if the visiting dog is male or female. “How can I change this behavior?” she wants to know.
