Default Humping

Does anyone have experience of this?
Chi Chi started this yesterday, my daughter was playing with him on the floor and he started to hump her leg. I told her to stop play and stand up, which she did, He started again as soon as she sat down.
He also humped my husbands leg tonight whilst he sat on the sofa.
How do you guys deal with this?

Humping is either sexual frustration or dominance. Chichi is 5 moths old isn't he?? He will b maturing and is the best time to start thinking about getting him neutered I actually think it's a dominance thing with his age!! You need to correct him when he does it this includes your daughter as he's testing his place in your house

Daisy humped one of her toys and I use to poke her and tell her no she only did it a few times she humps other dogs now which is fine by me just not allowed humans

Yes humping people is rooted in dominance, stuffies and other dogs, not a big deal to me at all.
I would correct him as Sarah said when he does this.

Believe me he is being corrected but ive never known a dog to be so persistant, he just doesnt want to back down with anything.
Im sure its a dominance thing, i shall be getting him neutered real soon.

Are chis known for their persistance?

This could be a loaded question

It depends, my dog humps his stuffie and the cat, actually the cat humps him back sometimes it's hilarious to watch.
He does not hump people however, never even tries.

They can be stubborn until they realize you are top dog.

<sigh>

Yeah, humping.

It's been an issue with Tango. He was neutered at around 8 months, shortly after I rescued him. He didn't even start humping anything till after his neuter. He's never tried to hump a human, but my roommate has a pug, and he goes after her every chance he gets. I've also learned~~the hard way lol!~~ which toys NOT to get him because depending on size/shape, he'll hump those too. Interestingly he's NEVER tried to hump Jazz, which still surprises me.

He's not around the pug very much thank goodness, but when they get together, he just goes sorta mindless! He'll hump, I'll correct him, he'll stop, then 10 seconds later he's at it again. It's like his brain turns off (which isn't surprising, given that another part of his anatomy has turned on lol) I sorta wish the pug would growl at him or something, but she just ignores him which unfortunately reinforces his behavior.

I don't think there's any kind of quick fix. If you find one, let me know will you?
