I totally agree it is most likely a dominance thing rather than a wish to mate. The does not happen unless she is in season. I had a male Rhodiesian Ridgback 100# who would walk across the room standing over our cat, humping mid air like crazy. He was not trying to mate with her, it was dominence. Sometimes when we over react to a situation we actully give a positive reaction to a negative action. Unless he is hurting her, I think the less attention you draw to it, he may seattle down, and not feel like he has to dominate her. Make him feel secure and loved.Figure it is worth a try. I also agree with not using your voice. It is still a reaction, for a negative action. which will make him focus on the action. Hope I am making scense.
