Is your dog homosexual?

asked 2018-11-28 12:44:59 -0500

Hi there, I am a television producer from the UK, who is making a documentary about same sex behavior in animals, including dogs. Dog owners will likely have seen this activity at some point, whether from their own dogs or others. Lots of people, including experts assume this is a display of dominance, but recent studies suggests homosexuality can and does exist in animals, domestic and wild. As part of the documentary we hoping to meet and film with people who suspect their dog has a preference for the same sex - whether male or female. If you think this applies to your dog, then it would be great to discuss the behavior you are witnessing and whether you might be happy to feature alongside your pet in our documentary. Look forward to hearing from you and perhaps discussing this over a call later down the line.

No, but I know several homosexuals that have cavoodles. That might be a place to start.

You're fishing for proof to back your theory, obviously. True sexual intercourse is practically impossible for animals of the same sex. Just because they prefer the company of a same sex animals doesn't prove they are gay.

Seems like a perfectly valid question from the OP to me. I don't see anything erroneous about it. There have been plenty of examples of same-sex engagement across species in the animal kingdom witnessed and reported in studies and articles (e.g. the penguin one).

My older male dog was recently neutered and even though he was neutered he is still trying to actually screw the new puppy who is also male and I'm not talking just humping I mean he was almost in his butt a minute ago and I had to pull him off of him

And not just that but the older male is not the dominant of the two he is usually the more timid they play together well but the puppy is getting so big he is definitely the more dominant of the two.males so I dont see how the timid one "humping"him is a dominance thing

And it started out when we first got the puppy that the older dog would let the puppy lick on his thing and I have to stop them because obviously the puppy is so young he doesn't know what that is or what hes doing but the older dog is basically getting a BJ

When a dog humps whereas it’s the same sex or opposite it’s all behavioral not preference. My dog humps me, does that mean she’s into human moreso other dogs? Dogs don’t know why they feel how they feel. Their base thinking comes from easing anxieties, and what makes them feel good. The dog doesn’t chew on the shoe because it taste good. It chews on it, because it smells like you, and misses you. He doesn’t know why he keep chomping on it, but each smell brings a sense of you to him to alas ease his anxiety. And also it can be they just were in the heat of the moment due to again, behavior. To research on this topic needs to be proven widely just beyond you watching animal porn. Regardless animals don’t have a voiced & they certainly don’t need the ones that do, to speak for them if it is going to attest to what reasonable cause? What’s next? Can you determine their religion? I don’t have anything against the lgbtq community, but this whole documentary seems exploitive and inappropriate. Also stop watching shrek.

What makes you so sure of your remarks here? Are you in the animals' minds or able to perform telepathy? How is it that these penguins and sparrows and lions and ducks and such we hear of and see preferring same-sex companionship is not in fact what's going on? Maybe a bit of perception bias here?

The sexual behavior of non-human animals takes many different forms, even within the same species, though homosexual behavior is best known from social species. Scientists perceive homosexual behavior in animals to different degrees.

I was always told that when you see a Male to another Male or a female to another female was to show who is in charge.

Yes, they dogs can definitely be gay as well, i had a Golden Retriever fir 12 years, who wasnt fixed. He would had many male dog friends that he would go st it with for hours at a time, it went way beyond the dominance thing, continue with your movie please!

I've known my dog was gay since the day I adopted him, and honestly, it's truly amazing and cute to see how he reacts to the different sexes.
