Question Humping?

I bet you all thought this was going to be about pablo LOL, but nope it's all about Neeva.

Now I know humping is totally natural they each have that one special toy that they like to romance if you want to call it that. But Neeva is mounting Pablo, again I know it's natural but what I find unnatural is how much she does it.. And what's even stranger Pablo now lays down for her and lets her hop on. She even does it out walks which is a total nightmare I'm trying to walk them and he's laying down and neevas going at it. Lord help me.

I have said to my trainers and they said it is natural as she's reaching the age her hormones will be coming in and it could either be play or just puppy dominance.

Has anyone ever dealt with an excessive female humper? She only does it to Pablo and a toy hedgehog (he suffers the most of it) should I be correcting this Pablo doesn't seem to care less he just lets her get on with it.. Don't get me wrong I do get a laugh out of it but I'm stuck at wither to just let nature continue or try and distract her attention elsewhere lol!

Omg what a hysterical visual that gave me! I'm afraid I'm not of much help as the only time my female humps anyone is while she's in season and VERY wound up.
I guess if it were me I'd try to distract her and redirect the behavior. So if she starts to have a go, maybe try clapping your hands to get her attention, walk a little bit away and get her to follow you, and then toss her a toy (not the hedgehog!) or play tug a moment or something to change her thought process and redirect that energy. I would NOT try to simply get her attention with a toy or something while she's going at it, because that would just make her think she's being rewarded for the behavior and make it worse, so put something in between there that is neutral first. If she trained, perhaps a down stay for a couple moments...Then something playful and positive, once she's snapped out of it.

Honestly its hilarious but I'm just watching like "Should I give you guys some alone time, do you want me to light some candles?"

Joking aside If I do shout on her to stop she does so straight away she's pretty well trained for 4 months! I think it could be her hormones and maybe a bit of dominance as she's getting to that age where she'll push her luck. Bless Pablo he just lets her do what she wants he's just happy to have a companion. I think i'll try the distraction technique not rewarding behaviour as i don't want her like you said thinking that thats what I want her to be constantly doing Got my work cut out with this little hussy LOL!

Sophie humps her bed like it's going out of style!!! She doesn't hump anything else, but boy she mounts the side of her bed and goes at it like crazy!!

She does it when she gets in her hyper play moods, she'll just be playing with her toys and running around the den and then she mounts up and goes at it. She's been fixed so I don't know what makes her do it or why she wants to, but she loves that damn bed!!

It's hilarious to watch though.

Humping has nothing to do with dominance. Dominance theory is outdated, and very unhelpful in terms of dog training.
Humping can be for lots of reasons, not necessarily sexual. It can be a way that some dogs deal with any form of arousal, it is common in insecure, fearful dogs for example as well as over-excitable types. It can easily become a habit, especially if used as a coping mechanism.
If it is excessive, just redirect to another activity you find more acceptable. So get her attention with a treat or toy, and start a game or do some training. Ignore the humping, don't give extra (negative) attention when she does it or tell her off. Just redirect to a different more socially acceptable behaviour.

Thanks Stella!

I'll have a read, I would say its been the last 2 weeks its started she is quite excitable in general she gets super pumped about anything fun so It could just be that! She doesn't get any negative attention from doing more so me laughing because she really goes for it like its her last day on earth lol. Pablos never really been a humper I mean he has his special toy that he sometimes does it too but in general he isn't fussed, so she's my first humper! Lol.

My two boys (both entire) don't hump at all. The girls all go crazy when one is in season though! They even act out the 'tie' and stand there bum to bum. It is very funny, I am lucky that they don't do it outside but they do put extra vigour into the show when there are guests present lol.
