Quote:Freckles is showing dominance over Abby. Freckles needs to be pushed off, held down on her side or back (gently but firmly) until she stops struggling. She is not pack leader, you are. Somebody has to be the boss, and she wants the job. No. A dog humping the owner is trying to show dominance over the owner. A dog humping another dog is showing dominance over that dog. Two very different things, dogs will always have a hierarchy amongst themselves. Humans cannot tell a pack of dogs who should be where in the hierarchy, that will typically cause aggression problems amongst the dogs as they try to assert their position.
