    Male dog/puppy is fixed but still *mounting* female dog

    My dog & puppy, both female play with a 10 month old Maltese male that has been fixed, yet he keeps mounting the 5 yr old Shihtzu,not the 5 month old puppy. His owner isn't sure how to get him to stop. What do you suggest? My 5 yr old is sooo gentle she does nothing to stop him and just stands there. thank you in advance.

    Its going to happen. Just because he is fixed wont stop him from mounting, even a spayed female. All male dogs nutured or no will mount at some point given the opertunity. just give him a firm no and stop him, hes not hurting anything, and can't get her preggy so don't worry about that. Just let him know it is an unwanted behaviour, he'll eventually calm some, but it will never stop completely.
    The reason dogs are great is they wag their tails, not their tongues.

    mounting

    Dogs don't just mount for sexual reasons. It is also a dominance display. That is why females & dogs spayed/neutered as puppies will still do it.

    IMO, it's just one of those things that is a harmless natural doggy behaviour, albeit an embarrassing one if you're out in company!<G>
