JB.....my large blue-tick coonhound insists upon laying across my lap! I am retired and am home with him, so he isn't a lonely dog! Why does he do this? He's 60 lbs!!

Sharon, I'm no authority on dog behavior but have you ever reprimanded him and directed him to another comfortable spot on the floor with a pillow.

You have to use a demanding tone and when he does as you say compliment him and offer him a small treat. 

Try different chairs and see if he still wants to be on your lap. If he's walked and has attention in that fashion it may make up for the approval he needs from you. Good luck!
