Mounting and Masturbation
Intact not neutered males will often masturbate if prevented from approaching a female in heat. Social Behavior Dogs sometimes mount other animals and people to display social status or control. Some poorly socialized or undersocialized dogs excessively mount other dogs in response to play solicitation. They mount and thrust against other animals, people and objects, such as wadded-up blankets, dog beds and toys. These issues can be serious if not properly treated and require medical attention rather than behavioral treatment.
