Q. My dog likes to smell and eventually lick our other dog's urine until he begins to slobber and salivate. How do I correct this behavior and what is the cause of it?
I purchased our dog from Lynx you in 2005 and I'm wondering if you can help me solve a problem I started to have with him. My girlfriend adopted a lab from the animal shelter and they get along great, but when the lab urinates Lynx has to run over smell and eventually lick the lab's urine until Lynx begins to slobber and salivate severely. How do I correct this behavior, and what is the cause of the behavior?

Thanks.

A. It's normal dog behavior. All of our males (and some of our females) do this. I tell my dogs to leave it, or yuck (whatever your word is for getting them to leave something alone).

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
