So OP, to recap,

you should stimulate the dogs use of his nose, and his inquisitiveness in general, by food or toys, or anything the dogs shows an attraction to, but not to the point of it becomming an obsession.

You should try to bring in a balanced, calm, yet submissive dog for him to copy from.

You should try to be in a calm and confident energy yourself as you handle the dog, don´t feel sorry for it or try to shelter it, and sure as hell don´t reward the unwanted behavior. Be very carefull not to send the wrong or mixed signals, there can be very subtle signs comming from you that the dog will pick up on.

Be calm, consistent, firm...and loving, but only at the right times, as the dog relaxes and is in the state you want it to be.

I would like to thank you and Arrowmancer for your help. Well, an aunt of mine visits our house pretty much every night and she usually brings her dog-- which is a very old female... and she is like 13(human) years old while my dog is maybe 3... but sometimes they have sex, other times my dog growls at her.

Really? I was just giving honest, well meant advice, and then you came up with the name calling and personal insults that are not according to the site´s rules.

You call me arrogant and not seperate from you, but go on to say that I should get educated and on your side.

This would indicate that I am seperate from you, and it surely displays your own radiant arrogance.

lol look dude,if u want a match of wits you got one,

I didn´t see a match, since this would involve more than one player, and you didn´t say anything remotely witty.

you want to talk intellectual in a false grandiose state,fine,but the reality is,your trying to complicate the situation all together as humans do

Too bad you feel that way, I was just applying what I learned from Cesar Millan, I´m echoing his exact sentiments. I´ll take his words over yours any day. He has rehabilitated many hopeless dogs and helped many owners.

the dogs been broken,like so many people have before,he will never fully heal,the only thing you can do is comfort the creature and bring him to trust you,thats as far as it will go

You can never help a dog with this kind off mindset.

You start of by saying the dog will never fully heal. You start like that, it never will.

You go on by suggesting that the dog needs to be comforted while it is in that fearfull state, wich is idiotic.

All you will do is keep the dog in its undesired state, and make it even harder to snap out of it.

Not surprising, coming from a person in a nervous/aggressive state.

You are actually the one that is complicating things, and working from a human standpoint.

From a big dog lover, you are quite welcome.

Try to apply the suggested methods and keep us posted on the progress if any.

It really pays to be consistent and perservering, and please post your experiences with the process, for further analysis.

Good luck.

PS, is your dog just mounting the other dog, or are they really mating, and is this on your dog´s initiative?

How´s your dog towards other dogs in general?

My 2 jack russells are treated as well as i would treat my kids.Yelling and hitting dogs only makes them cower .I feel your frustration...just take the dog with you as often as you can and hopefully things will turn around. Good luck.

Watch the The Dog Whisperer... pretty much anything you can learn from Cesar Millan will help you with your dogs fears...

His methods work 100%... I've rehabilitated many dogs because of what i've learned watching his show. Hes truely amazing!

He's The best Dog trainer on the planet i sware! ...And People trainer!

Theres lots more on Google and Utube, these are just a few examples.

Good luck

To ease the dogs skittish tendancies i have a bit of history with rescue dogs and i heard treats work.
I was able to confirm this too!
Keep treats handy and coax him with treats, pet him/her and tell them good boy/girl.
After awhile they will learn you are the one they depend on for guidance, you are the Alpha/pack leader.
Dogs i believe are smarter or at least wiser than us, they'll trust you in time when you show them they are family.
Listen to Arrowmancer, he/she from the response truly knows teh doggies.

You ROCK!!!

Anyone who knows doggies has wisdom and in my eyes is a cut above.
My doggies are my buddies.

Ditto on this one bro. Great advice. My sister adopts every abused animal she comes across. With a little love and sticking with it for a bit they all come around. She has a husky now that sticks by her side like a magnet. They always stay a little leery of people. She flattens her head and closes her eyes when you go to pet her as if you are going to hit her. One of her dogs flies off whenever the broom comes out so we can guess what that previous owners method of abuse was!
Like they say here. Trust and time will fix all manner of injury.
