    LOL pugger. It could very well be true. I think she would still be giving off a smell or so e sort. Women have 28 days in a cycle, we're always doing something even though it might not be bleeding. Dogs could be the same.

    My dogs humps others, and she's a girl, it's just pure domination. Unfortunately if the other dog owners aren't doing anything about it then it's going to keep happening. Can you go to another park with less dogs, if any?

    Back to the mounting.......Some dogs get mounted more if they have a low grade intrauterine or bladder infection. just something you might want to get checked. I did have this issue with one of mine, when one of our usually polite male dogs started mounting a bitch we had. She had an infection.......Easily fixed and problem solved

    It is also a dominating behaviour, which some dogs do more to other dogs, also males, then other dogs. And your dogs behaviour might bring this out in the dogs. It would be interesting to watch the dogs that mount your dog behave around other un-desexed females. I have un-desexed bitches and mine do not get mounted.
    Just something to ponder

    Wow I didn't know that, she is due for her check up in two weeks I will ask about it then!

    We had our weekly visit to the dog park today, when the lab showed up I cringed and got ready to leave. He ended up not even paying attention to Ruby and instead focused his attention on another male Lab who's owner ended up having to leave aswell as his dog was constantly getting humped for 20 mins straight!

    I feel a compulsive humper at a dog park is as frustrating as an aggresive dog at a dog park.

    A Big Thanks to all that understood about her being Un desexed. I think having your dog desexed is simple the choice of the owner. IF YOU ARE A SMART DOG OWNER!

    Where is the labs owner. Even at an off lead dog park a dog should be under control somewhat by it's owner and if it is creating a situation where other people must take their dogs away. Then it's not under control and the owner should step up to the responsibility and restrain their dog. If I were u I would approach them and just say how u feel. U never know they could work on it.

    Newfsie - great post!

    The behaviour of the other dogs whilst normal, is understandbaly frustrating.

    Have you tried to approach the other dog owners to discuss it? Maybe they are unaware that it is causing you issue... althgough why they would be so oblivious no-one would know. It may be ignorance, or even selfishness.

    Mounting can also be to initiate play.

    They just stand there and watch, occasionally they will yell out STOP.

    in NSW it is illegal for a dog to harrass or menace another animal including dogs. So if you're not happy about the humping you could call the council ranger.

    If it was me, I'd carry a water pistol or trigger sprayer and spray the offender in the face and then quote the law to the offending owner. Ie you're allowed to use all reasonable force to defend your dog (and family and property) against attack from others, and they are not allowed to let their dog harrass other dogs.

    COMPANION ANIMALS ACT 1998 - SECT 16 Offences where dog attacks person or animal

    However my own desexed bitch has her own solutions to humpers. She rolls over out from under and kicks them in the soft bits. And they really don't know what to do with a wriggler, paws up. Dogs just don't seem to manage missionary position. So some dogs try it on with my dog but not usually more than once.

    Personally I don't think humping is about domination or sex (if nobody is entire or on heat), I think it's fun for the dog, and self re-inforcing ie if the owners do nothing to stop it, the dog will do it more and more because they enjoy it. You need to take the fun out of it for the offending dog and owner.

    PS it may help to have a friend take photographs for evidence of who is harrassing who...
