      Oh dear – always awkward! Your dog is expressing frustration. if he’s not neutered then it’s probably sexual frustration because he doesn’t have a mate. so, he expresses sexual behaviour in the wrong context. If he’s neutered, it’s much less likely he’ll do it (once the hormones are out of his system after the surgery). If he’s neutered it’s probably a different frustration, like needing more exercise and it gets taken out on poor spongebob. If you don’t like the behaviour then neuter him but don’t punish him for it

      Haha! I am so sorry but this question really made me laugh! I know it isn’t a funny situation – it was just the phrasing! I hope it isn’t happening too often though, poor spongebob!

      Thankfully Carrie has given you a proper answer!
