The marking and mating behaviour of captive hunting dogs, Lycaon pictus, is described. Urine
scent-marking was the most frequent marking behaviour observed, but anal dragging, body-rolling
and body-rubbing were also recorded. The mating behaviour was typical of that of Canidae but the
copulatory tie in this case was of very short duration. There was a dense accumulation of sebaceous
glands in the praeputium and these secretions are probably important in the urine scent-marking.
There is no tail gland in L. pictus.
