A. If this is unusual behavior for him there is a possibility of a hormonal condition which may be causing this although they are extremely rare. Some dogs will display this as a dominance behavior also but monitor closely to see if this is an isolated incident or not. He may require blood tests to investigate if this continues and especially if the behavior is increasing or he develops any other signs or coat changes
