Would the kennels allow you to take him home with you for a week or so, just to see if he behaves a little more "gentlemanly" and to give him a chance to see you as "pack leader" right now he doesn't have any so called "pack leader" and feels free to do what he wants to do, I feel that once he sees you as his "leader" he may improve his behavior. The mounting definatly sounds like dominant behavior and nipping his manhood would proberly be of no help because at his age it is more than likely "learned behavior" more than instinct and mating behavior. When my old akita Benny used to try it on with me, it was usually from behind, I'd elbow him (not too hard, just enough for him to feel it) and give a loud, long drawn out "Nooooooooo!!!" it did work because he eventually saw that he was getting no-where As you know, getting them out of bad habits takes time, maybe when if he spends more time with you, and you can do some basic training together, he'll start to see you as someone to respect

It's never too late to train them, I had an 8 year old GSD cross and for one reason and another we had to take him to training classes, he ended up getting the his beginners certificate, his intermediate certificate, a G.C.D. certificate and the club cup!! so it is possible, with patience, to train them out of bad habits

Maybe one more try before you give up on him
