    Tried that, doesn't matter. What doesn't help is that he's just the right size to have no problem putting his nose there and following you around. Or sneaking up on you and giving you a BIG surprise!

    I'm really getting tired of standing at the kitchen counter and getting "goosed" by the dog. I'm going to cut my finger off by accident one day because of this.

    Well they say if a dog jumps up on you to just turn around and ignore him, so if he is coming from behind maybe to turn around and stand there looking dominent? That is a new one on me.

    DH says we have an even bigger problem here. His has a crack in it...he thinking of getting it spackled.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    Yeah, we could use some spackle here too.

    okay not sure if you want to try this. buy one of those canned air horns, when Waldo does a goose just give a short blast with a firm NO.

    Well that would probably work for Waldo, but then Rosie and Bogie would go into the loud sound makes us very frightened and we have to go hide and shake mode.

    I do tell him no and I have put my knee up to block him, but the darned dog is so goofy, happy, that he thinks you're playing with him. I wonder if a spray bottle of water would be a detterant. He doesn't like water, so that may work. I will need a holster to carry it around in so I have it on hand when he does his thing.

    I may have to invent a butt shield to wear around the house.

    We did get him to stop pooping in the house, so I know he can be trained. I guess I should be happy with that milestone, but I need to figure out this bad behavior. And he did it to my neighbor who was NOT amused!

    Butt-sniffing is a dog's version of the handshake. Waldo is, in his own mind, being polite, and probably wonders why you don't sniff his butt in return (you don't, do you?)

    Gustav was an annoyance like Waldo, but fixing him fixed the problem. If Waldo is already neutered, I have no idea.

    If you decide to live with it, remember to keep it fun for Waldo. For example, on gift-giving occasions (Christmas, his birthday, etc) you might put a dead squirrel in your pants

    That would make ANYONE sit up and say "howdy do!"

    Oh MRD, I am so laughing with you (and not at you!) and also about some of these replies

    Good luck in solving this funny, but (no pun intended) annoying, problem.

    Also, thank you Unk, and misskitty to whom little one sends his sweet wet nosey kisses
