"Humping" is not a domination issue, it is what a dog does when it does not know what else to do. I never practice taking coveted things away from my dogs. However, I trust them and they trust me and I know they would let me take things away.... I was horrified when my sister this past weekend practiced taking a rawhide bone away from my pup. First of all, my pup saw her first rawhide at my sister's house... Second of all, I just do not do that to my dogs....
But true to my pup's temperament, she willingly gave my sister the rawhide.. I personally think it is not fair to annoy dogs when eating. I always meander around my kitchen when the dogs are eating, but I do not bug them...
