Dominance Over Other Dogs.

Dogs do not restrict "standing Over" behavior to their interactions with humans.

If a dog feels more powerful than another canine, he also may attempt to stand directly Over him.

Dogs often place single paws onto the shoulders of those that they sense are lower - and weaker - then them.
