    Wink Female Pyrenees pushes her butt into me

    Hey guys,

    This may have been explained (or not) but, many times, my Pyr female seems to want to push her butt into me. I have seen her do it to the arm end of my couch and she's done it to me from time to time.

    We rescued her from the local shelter and we figure she may be 18 months old as she seems to still have a playful puppy nature.

    I try to counter by pushing her butt away from me.

    I'm wondering, what is she doing and how would I get her to stop or curb that behavior?

    Thank you for your help!

    My 9 mo. old male, Yoki, does the same thing. I give him a scratch at the base of his tail and he loves it.

    My prior boy, Bro, used to do that when he wanted his butt scratched. He would do that to people at the dog park and they would be all puzzled until I explain to them what he wanted.

    So basically it seems she wants me to rub her butt then?

    *giggle*

    Ok, I'll give it a try.

    Although I've been doing that to my S.O. many times before...LOL

    Thanks all!!!

    I guess that's part of the breed's needs/attributes?

    Lol, the butt scratching is an individual dog thing, not a breed trait.

    Yeah, I used to have an aussie who would do that and then look at me intensely until I agreed to give her the scritches she demanded. Max is fairly indifferent to butt scritches and would prefer someone scritch his ears and/or belly 24/7.
