nutering your dog wont help, much anyway. My dog does that to new friends and he is nutered and has been ever since he was old enough. your dog will still have the 'instinct' if you nuter him so i dont think it would help. i dont know how to stop it though. sorry

My female Scottish terrier will hump the female cat. she started doing it after I had her fixed.
She doesn't do it often but....I believe its a dominance thing.

It's a sign of dominance and neutering WILL NOT help this either.

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Sorry but it's very rarely a sign of dominance. Talk to any qualified animal behaviorologist and they will tell you that it's NOT dominance. Truely dominant dogs are pretty much non aggressive. They have no reason to be aggressive as they are #1 and know it and they don't need to prove anything. Dominance is how another animal reacts to you not what you do to it. Think about it this way. Which horse is the dominant one in the pasture? The one who flicks his ear slightly back and all the other horses MOVE, no argument... same thing here. It's a myth that dogs hump for dominance who knows how it started, but if you watch most dogs "humping for dominance" neither one seems too unhappy about it. You would think if one is being put in his place he would be showing all the typical submission signals (tail tucked, crouched, rolling over, ears back, etc) instead they're usually sitting there panting not really caring.

My cat seems to be very unhappy when my dog humps her
Thanks for the info on the non-dominance, I assumed thats what it was.
