So I've got Koda to a point in his training where I can very slowly introduce him to new dogs and he won't try to kill them
He listens to me, keeps focused when I ask him to and most importantly doesn't freak out and lunge at the other dog.
So this is all well and good however he's started doing another thing which I don't know how to stop.
Basically if I've got another dog who is calm and happy Koda is fine, he'll stay relaxed and just enjoy spending time with that dog. However if the other dog is really excited or wanting to rough play, Koda will 99% of the time just try to hump them He is okay at playing sometimes, he does have a habit of getting too rough, and it seems once he gets to that point where he's getting too rough, everything else in his mind just switches off and all he wants to do is hump them.
This is only if I've let him play. I can have him focused on me with the other dog going bezerk wanting to play around him, but he'll just sit there ignoring it. But when I say he can play...he's alright at first, but slowly gets rougher until he eventually just sits there humping them...
It just seems odd to me... Is it just a reaction from being overwhelmed with excitement? and how do I stop him from doing this so he can play nicely with other dogs?
He's never ever done this to Dodge (even when she's in heat, lol). Koda is desexed although he seems to exhibit a lot of entire male characteristics (marking territory and such).
My goals with Koda at the moment are to be able to walk him in public without causing incidents every time we see another dog, even if he never really likes other dogs that much, that's fine as long as he can control himself when it comes to voicing his opinion (we're well on the way to achieving that).
I'd also like to be able to carefully and slowly introduce other dogs to him and have him be fine with them. Which I have achieved except for the fact that he's terrible at playing with them...
