    Hi, I’m a kennel tech at an Animal Hospital and Boarding. A pair of pitbulls (a boy and girl, not sure if neutered or spayed) came in today. They are in separate cages. The boy, Tramp, is known for being slightly aggressive. He has to be fed by hand because he rips metal bowls apart and cuts up his gums. After I had fed him (by holding the bowl as he ate) he started to hump me. That time I was able to get him off me but I struggled as I’m a 5’2 teenage girl. The next time I let him out he immediately started humping me. When I tried to get him off he bit onto my sweater and tried to tear it away. I was scared that he would bite me. Is there anything I can do to stop him from humping me or to get him off me without chancing him biting me? I am usually there after the hospital closes so I’m all alone and can’t get any help. Any advice?

    This is definitely something to bring up with management. If you’re being physically overpowered by an animal and are by yourself that can be a dangerous situation and I don’t think it’s fair for you to be put in it. Changing a dog’s behaviour takes time and there’s no immediate fix we can give you to simply stop it without reinforcement and consistency.

    I agree, tell management ASAP. Does your clinic have protocols in place to keep staff safe against aggressive animals?
    How do you know this dog is a pit bull?

    I agree with the others about telling management.

    He needs exercise too.

    Not knowing this dogs past as well as several other factors it's best that it's assessed by someone with the credentials. Something doesn't necessarily add up if a teenager is allowed to be alone with possible aggressive animals, nobody should be in this position unless the dogs proven to be sound.
