Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare – Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo

We adopted Donna 12 January 2013, so I usually try to give her a little celebration around that day. This year we decided to send her to dog daycare so she can have a day of fun with her friends.

This post records the second part of her Gotcha day at dog daycare in the afternoon. You can read about her a walk with her daycare friends at Pasir Ris Park in the morning here.

An Afternoon at Dog Daycare

Donna's Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare - Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo during afternoon playtime

Rolling around is one of Donna’s attention-seeking behaviour when she wants to play.

Donna wants to play but everyone is tired and wanting to rest in the indoor area. 

Come on Kosmo! Play with me!

Donna can be quite pushy or assertive (lol… depending on perspective), poking Kosmo to play with her.

And apparently Donna loves to hump Kosmo, and Kosmo lets her… If I remember correctly, she is the only one that Kosmo allows to hump him. (I hope I remember correctly lol)

Outside in the yard, we have lots of fun!

Donna and Kosmo continue to play.

Donna looks pleased with herself :P

Donna’s friends at daycare come in all shapes and sizes

But some dogs like Gracey seem just content to lie there and chill in the cool, rainy weather. I took this picture because of that cute little furry smile.

Then I thought I better take one with eyes lol. :P

Kosmo, Donna, Skylar @skylarthepug

Little Skylar the Pug peeking from behind the wall is so cute. Inside the daycare, Skylar was a quiet little fellow, not at all like his howling self here. :P

And this gorgeous Singapore Special. Donna's Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare - Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo during afternoon playtimeDonna's Gotcha Day at Dog Daycare - Lots of Fun Humping Kosmo during afternoon playtimeIsn’t she just beautiful?

Meanwhile, my muscular clown of a dog is still pulling the same stunt on Kosmo. She really does have quite a strong grip.

Do I stop Donna from humping other dogs?

It depends. You see humping can be a common play behaviour.

mounting is common play behavior in puppies, and is even normal in the play of older dogs if it’s not taken to extremes.

“You’ll often see one dog mount another, then a few minutes later they’ll switch off and the other dog will mount the first dog,” says Gary Landsberg, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist in Ontario, Canada,. “It’s a common play gesture.”Why does my dog hump or mount other people and dogs

So if both dogs are enjoying themselves, why should I stop their fun?

But if the other dog is sending out stress signals and Donna still doesn’t give that dog space, that is bullying and I will call Donna off to give that poor dog the space he needs.

In the case of Kosmo, you can see they get into each other’s space a lot, they have a lot of body contact and they do a lot of play growling but that’s just that – Play.

I jump on you.
