Thanks for all of the advice people.

When invited, my dog does sit on my lap. He's 35kg so I don't invite him to do that too often. I'm guessing he may just be trying to sit on my head and I'm mistaking it for teabagging. He doesn't have any tea in his bags but there is still the empty remnants. Does that mean it isn't teabagging?

I thought about video recording it and putting it up on YouTube, seeking people's advice. But then thought I would become a meme. And not a good meme.

Yes, or he's offering you his bum to sniff.

So dogs sitting on your feet is dominant or possessive? My older (male) dog has started sitting on my feet while being very submissive. Kind of at odds.

Animal behavior is very confusing for me. Presumably what applies for one dog may not apply exactly the same to another?


My puppy (female) tries to mount you from behind if you sit on the floor. So many licks. Delivery seems a playful behavior.

I did think to have my feet sitter checked out by a behaviouralist but with some research decided that given the vet said he was a very well looking dog only a week before that is keep my money in my pocket and not invest in a potentially corn flake box professional.

I'm another cornflakes box professional when it comes to animal behaviour.

Whether it was submissive or possessive or even aggressive behaviour. Does it matter? It's unwelcome and I'd be giving a push away and a firm no, no matter what the ultimate reasoning was.

My Mrs small dog jumps on laps, it weighs 5kg or something and it's genuinely not a huge problem. But it was unwelcomed 99% of the time and was a bad habit for when guests came around. Trained her out of it until invited.

Thanks and that's what I suspected. I couldn't agree more about everyone being an expert. I'm yet to see a story of a dog attack where the owners didn't know their dog really well, despite the obvious proof they didn't.

Set the video to private and just PM the link to karigan.

It sounds like dominant behavior, but take a step back here and look at what you are doing.

Lying on the ground on your back is classic submissive behavior, so he's taking cues from that.
