Why Do Dogs Hump? Mounting or humping is what most male dogs do when they mate. But as you have seen, dogs don’t only mount when mating, and they don’t only just mount other dogs. Some dogs may mount furniture, other animals, stuffed toys, and people. Female dogs mount too, but much less frequently than males. Dogs May Hump for Sexual Reasons Apart from actual mating purposes, dogs still have plenty of reasons to mount. Oddly, people often overlook the more obvious of these. Even neutered and spayed dogs display sexual behavior, often accompanied with what looks to a human eye like flirtatious playing. You may also see a female dog lift her tail away from her private area like she would if in heat and preparing to mate. Male dogs can ejaculate after humping, but if neutered, the fluid contains no sperm. Dogs May Hump When They are Anxious or Excited Mental arousal isn’t just sexual. Some dogs response to a house guest can reflect happy excitement. This can lead to an erection. Dogs may also hump when anxious. Some suspect that anxious humping is the kind many popular training books explain as an alpha domination or an assertion […]

Fireworks can easily frighten animals. The loud explosions are more clear to animals and especially dogs. A nice trick to keep your dogs a little more at ease is to play some sort of noise at your house and keep them indoors. Even music will help drown out the sounds of explosions happening outside. Not only is the noise a factor for your pets this 4th of July. Most Animal Care and Control states that their busiest time is during the July 4th Holiday. Take precautions to keep your furry friends safe: keep them indoors, remedy tag, online collar, approved and microchip. Pets in a panic tend to run and can have more of a risk of being injured. Not having your pets indoors or on a leash is a substantial risk. Be safe and have a great 4th of July!

Reticulated Python (Scientific name Python reticulatus) Most people aren’t aware that pythons are actually amazing swimmers. It is this ability that has allowed them to spread between the many islands of the Indo-Australian Archipelago. Besides being avid swimmers, reticulated pythons are also aggressive constrictors. This means that instead of venom, they surround and suffocate their prey before ingesting it whole. Reticulated pythons have been recorded reaching 22.8 feet in length (6.95 meters). This makes them even longer than the giant saltwater crocodile though they are much lighter in weight. Leatherback Sea Turtle (Scientific name Dermochelys coriacea) Gentle giants of the sea, leatherback turtles can reach up to 7 feet in length (2 meters), and have flippers that can span nearly […]
