Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your questions.
Can you please tell me if his penis is still exposed or back in its sheath/ prepuce?
The reason neutered or fixed dogs hump is for several reasons, not typically sexual in nature but more for dominance purposes or out of frustration/ anxiety. I have a little dog that also does this...to my German Shepherd! She is of course oblivious and cares little because he is not really even putting pressure on her but does it nonetheless
If his penis is still exposed then please lubricate with ky or vaseline and get him to a veterinary clinic. If exposed for an extended period of time (>1 hour) this can be an emergency. CLICK HERE for more information
If his penis is not exposed then you can take him on a nice long walk to increase his focus on the current sensation and allow his mind to move forward but if the licking continues then you definitely need to get him in tomorrow morning
Often increased exercise (30-45 minutes daily) will reduce the humping, my dog typically will only do this on days he hasn't had regular exercise ...today for example, no walk this morning because I had surgery and he was in my office humping her!
His obsession was so bad I started a supplement called anxitane. I am unsure of what it is in the UK but CLICK HERE for link. It did take a good 4 weeks for full effect but his frequency has reduced significantly on the medication
Please let me know if this information makes sense and any additional questions I can assist with today
