    DefaultMeet Ike

    Well, Ike is here. He is a beautiful yellow boy




    He has been pretty mellow, but Star has not, she has been WILD.

    The only problem we have had so far is that he is humping, a lot. He is humping Star, he tried to hump my son. I don't know if it is a show of dominance or what. He is four years old, will neutering help this behaviour? (He's going to get the big snip anyway, but I was just wondering if it would help at his age) What are other ways to discourage this? He is MUCH bigger than Star, and bigger than my son. He stops when I fuss at him, but Star is now wary of him, he won't leave her alone. We have to seperate them to give her a break. Other than that all is well for now.

    He is a handsome guy! It sounds as though everything is going well, and with a little time they will get used to each other and the rules. I think neutering him will help with the humping. I'm not 100% sure on that, but one would think if the hormones are gone so might be the urge. It's good that you separate them if they need a break from one another.

    I'm pretty sure that neutering will help but it probably won't completely fix the problem. The rest will have to be dealt with training.

    When Duke was trained he was taught to respond to a can rattle to get his attention when not listening to commands or doing something he shouldn't. Just fill an aluminum can with a few pennies then tape it shut with some duct tape. Use it in conjunction with the command "No" as soon as you can see he is even thinking about humping. The rattle distracts their brains.
    To this day,eight years later, Duke will still sit and pay attention when he hears that rattle.

    He's a sweet looking boy, good luck with the training. I think Duke's Dad has a great idea.
