Odin has started to "hump"(I hate that word,sounds really vulgar but can't think of anything better to use) on my arms and legs. He doesn't do it to any of his stuff animals or my BF, just me. Isn't 10 weeks old pretty early? I don't think it's a sexual thing but I'm just worried that it's so early...

Odie humped her toys that young, and she's a girl! In her case, it was purely a dominance thing. She would hump any of her toys that were bigger than her. She never did it to us though, but I can't say the same for the cats. ;)

Axle humped his bear from they day we got him at 9 weeks - he has never tried to hump us though. If he's humping you rather than a toy it may be him trying to show his dominance over you. Are you making him work for everything he gets such as making him sit or do some other command before you give him his food? Do you make sure he follows you in and out of the house rather than him going first? Do you pick him up every time he wants or do you make him wait until you ask him sometimes? These are all easy ways of establishing that you are the leader in your household. Once he understands that he won't try and dominate you. It's not mean, it's just helping him understand his place in the world.

I agree that it is a show of dominance. Start implementing some training ASAP. Google nothing in life is free or how to be a packleader. This needs to be stopped right away.
