Dear Cesar,

My boyfriend has never wanted to get our dog fixed, even though the dog can become aggressive some times. He is normally a very social dog with humans, but every time he is around another un-neutered male dog or a female dog, he tries to hump it or bite the other animal. I recently moved into a large apartment complex and there are dogs everywhere. When girl dogs are in heat, he just sits at the door and begs to go outside. He also obsessively licks the grass. It is really annoying… is this problem related to obedience, or to neutering?

Thank You,

Allison and Chris

Cesar Millan’s answer:
Dear Allison and Chris,

Being that your dog still has his testicles intact, he has natural biological needs. If your dog doesn’t fulfill those needs, then he will build up frustration, anxiety, and may even develop obsessive tendencies.

When your dog licks the grass, he is either releasing his anxiety, or it could be that he is also picking up the odor of a female in heat.

If you do not plan to breed your canine, then I highly suggest you neuter your dog. He’ll be much calmer and so will you.

Stay calm and assertive,
