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!
The reason ALOP.org started was to help people understand that animals are our partners not for food and fun. They have feelings just like us and there is plenty of other ways to live awesomely without killing them especially in the inhumane psychotic ways we do now. We have found another focus and it will be last chance ranches, all donations will go directly to these rescue sanctuaries around. These amazing places house animals that would normally be killed. We have been to several all over the world and every time a tear nearly forms from the love for animals that no one else wants or where abused. We feel there is no greater service in the animal community than these and they deserve all the help they can get. We will be doing posts for a new rescue sanctuary each month and details on how to contribute directly. All donations to ALOP will also be distributed to these places less a small amount we use to promote the website. If you have a last chance ranch in your town go visit them, most are homes for people as well as animals and most like to have events and fund raisers. I […]
Please contact PETA for animal help,t hey have people standing by in most counties. Animal experts who have been in the rescue trenches during prior hurricanes urge pet owners to follow a number of guidelines, especially now that Hurricane Irene is moving into populated areas of the U.S. East Coast. The statistics in the wake of hurricanes like Irene are startling. Evacuations from Hurricane Andrew in 1992 left some 1,000 deserted pets to be euthanized for lack of space to care for them. In 1999, more than 3 million pets and farm animals died as a result of Hurricane Floyd. “It’s essential that you heed local warnings and evacuate if necessary,” Sara Varsa, director of operations for the Humane Society of the United State’s Rescue and Response Team, told Discovery News. “If a situation is not safe for you, then it is not safe for your pets.” BREAKING NEWS: Track Irene on our storm tracker map and get breaking hurricane news updates. In 2000, the HSUS and FEMA signed a partnership agreement to encourage and assist people who want to safeguard their pets during a natural disaster. Since that time, it’s become easier to find a shelter that will accept […]
