He is not perfect because:
- He sometimes barks at people or other dogs when we are walking – even though it is usually because he wants to greet them, it is not polite.
- He sometimes tries to hump other dogs when he is playing. I don’t have any scientific studies to confirm my theory but I think it is role-play – just like play fighting between dogs. When dogs play with each other they mimic natural fighting behaviors – open mouth “bitey-face”, chasing one another and sometimes wrestling or barking or growling. I think these are role-play and that mounting in this context is role-play of another natural behavior necessary for reproduction. But, that being said, humping is not socially acceptable!
