We took Manson to our friend's house and he ran and played with their dogs. They have 2 female spayed dogs. Manson does not bother my dog, Missy-- that is, try to mount her. But he went further than a dominance kind of mount with one of their dogs over and over. I did not think that males would bother with actual entry (which was definitely going on) if the female is spayed and obviously not in heat. She is most definitely spayed, my friend took her personally, so it's not like they got her from someone who said "Yeah, sure she's spayed!" and was lying.
Mods, if this is not okay for the forum, I will not be offended if you get rid of it, it is just something that I have never known about before and I wonder if it is common and normal.

What exactly are you asking? Do dogs still atempt to penitrate altered females? Yes. Even altered males will and can penatrate and tie a female. Removing the harmones does not always remove the want.
However, he can wind up irritating himself (it seems that I can not use the proper term for the boards moderation) if you allow him to constantly mont her, so discoruge the behavior. Some girls mind, some girls don't.
Thank you, that was exactly what I was asking. I have never owned a male dog before, and I didn't know what to think! I am glad he does not run around doing that to my dog. It would be very awkward to explain to the kids.
Well I learned something new today too. I'm glad you asked. I have one male and three females and I am certainly glad he doesn't do it either. Really, try explaining that one. I guess if you really think about it though, a human can have a vasectomy/hyserectomy and just because you can't have babies doesn't mean anything else....How odd this has never come up before. I guess it doesn't happen very often. Good thing. Good job with your wording shiny, :)
