    My pup also would hump from the time we got him at 8 weeks, but only when excited. I too, thought this is way too young for this behavior. I think my Internet search on this subject is what brought me to EBN. My results was that this action is just part of their doggie nature, not dominance, just a reaction when over excited. Every time he started this behavior, I sternly told him no, removed the "object" of his excitement and playtime stopped. After several weeks of repeating the same discipline every time he humped, he finally understood that this action was not acceptable. This action is no longer an issue and hasn't been for over a month now. He will be 6 months old next week. Just be consistent with what behavior you will and will not accept and your baby will soon learn and want to please. Enjoy your baby, time goes by too fast!

    @Corlando465 - great post.

    Bo did this to Bea yesterday for the first time in a VERY long time --- it's an excitement issue. I was on the phone and so I didn't see the BEGINNING of the behavior (over excitement) so I didn't stop it before it got to the hump-fest.

    It's probably a natural thing for a pack of dogs in the wild or something --- but not in human company in a modern world. Folks frown on that. I'd correct the behavior and direct this energy toward something else. Getting in front of over excitement is the best course of action for the long term.

    Emma is worse than both Wilson and Jack were. She's 6 months old now and started humping them both pretty much as soon as we brought her home.

    With the new EB owners I figured I'd bump my most recent search... Rufus is humping yay. So far we are correcting like bad behavior, but with biting/chewing and now humping hes being a handful

    AND HE BACK TALKS!! lol

    It takes you by surprise huh, lol. I nearly rolled over laughing when I saw Emma doing that to Jack my other dog. She was only 10 weeks give or take. She's 7.5 months now and still does it to him.

    Humping is an Alpha thing. She is trying to get her place in the pack. As far as stopping it, it depends on if you want to show her you are alpha or not. It is a personal preference.
