    Default I am at my wit's end with Vegas!!

    OK, I know I have said it before always kind of joking but really NOT, but with Christmas coming and I will be having guest over Christmas evening for dinner I need some suggestions, I do not want to crate him, he will bark the whole time, same thing if I shut him in the bedroom, he will bark the whole time. I am starting to get mad already thinking about this!!!

    You all know that Vegas is a humper, that is how he greets all our company and it is embarrassing and makes me beyond mad!!

    I have tried the air can spray, a water bottle, a rolled up newspaper, yelling, begging, bargaining everything I can think of, but it is like he is possessed and has a one track mind, and that is to hump. YES he is neutered.

    I want to have all my guest over for dinner but I am already getting very anxious about his behavior, like I don't have enough to stress about fixing a huge dinner and having several guest with having to worry he will be humping all of them. I have even thought about giving him a couple of benedryl to "calm him down" (Is that mean??)

    ANY suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I am so stressed out about this!!! Thank You. Kelly

    I don't think the benadryl idea is mean. If it calms him when you've given it to him for allergies then I'd say go for it.

    A little "special punch" could do wonders.

    Is Vegas more stubborn than normal? I ask that because out of 6 Bulldogs I have had, my most stubborn ever was also a humper. He was 3 when he finally took the cure. I had a friend who had quick reactions give him the knee to the chest everytime he tried to hump him. It took over an hour, maybe two, but Mack finally gave up. After that Mack would just put a paw on someone's leg and I'd tell him to leave it and he would. He hasn't tried to hump again and he is 7&1/2. Good luck.

    @Pendragon, I don't want to board him. It is Christmas and he has to be here to open his presents!! Seriously I do not want him gone for the holiday even though that is a good suggestion, thank you. I don't want him like a zombie on something, but my Christmas wish is to just STOP IT!!!!

    @Alice Kable, he is very stubborn and has a one track mind, he is 18 months old. I am just at a loss with this behavior, you said Mack was 3 when he finally quit? We have a ways to go!!!

    Do you have a friend who you think would not mind pushing him down over and over for an hour? And be stern with him (not nice and sweet?).

    @desertskybulldogs, My husband will put him down until he is submissive, but even that will be embarrassing in front of our company. I don't think Joe wants to be on "putting the dog down to make him submissive duty." If it is only a couple of our friends I would not be embarrassed but this will be several, some that has never been here. I live in Fl. the home of transplants, so I invited some people I work with that has no family here as I or Joe does not besides my youngest 23 yr. old son. I think at work this week I am just going to have to warn them all about what Vegas does and what has to be done to stop it, Joe will hold him down firmly on his side until he becomes submissive, he is not hurting him, but Joe is showing who is boss (YEA right we all KNOW who's boss) I am very anxious about this.

    @KMARINO .... As you know I know nothing.. lol,,,, but I do know how to use Google Search. From what I have found it is a dominance issue. Vegas has decided that the hierarchy is fluid and is trying to assert his dominance over the pack. He must be made to submit to you or Joe and not try to exert his dominance.. They were a bit vague on how to do this but one person suggested that when he does this he should be isolated to show him that it won't be tolerated. I think that control of the pack has become up for grabs for some reason. Like I said I know nothing but Im sure one of the experienced bullie people here can help you with the details.

    I don't have the problem with Chester..but I do with my shih tzu, except I'm afraid he'll bite someone. I put him in the bedroom with the door closed. He does bark a bit, but then he settles down and realizes "it is what it is". I can sympathize.
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."
