    Default Gasp! Not my little puppy!

    Gretzky keeps trying to hump me, and only me! He only does it while I am walking around.
    I do not acknowledge it because I don't want to direct any attention to it, good or bad.
    He is only 4 1/2 months old... Is it normal? And why only me?

    Is it a dominance thing? Maybe he sees you as lower in the pack. Do you feed him and supply his water? Take him out to use the bathroom or does someone else do that?

    I am the one that feeds him and takes him everywhere. He listens to me better than anyone else in the family. ???

    Blue sometimes humps as well. First it was his stuffie, then my arm or leg, and now my husbands arm. As long as he doesn't do it too often, we let it go. At this age, I think it's impossible to say why they're doing it.

    Ace is almost 6 months old and intact and hasn't humped at all yet since I have had him from 8 weeks. I'm sure he will eventually but if not obsessive or anxiety driven its completely natural on occasion. It would be unnatural if they didn't do it. They way I would handle it is just don't let him do it and distract him by giving him something else to do. Personally I wouldn't be obsessed by it if my dog does it on occasion and would simply distract when the dog does it. Litter mates hump one another even when very young, its normal behavior among dogs and only when it is anxiety driven or when they become obsessive with it does it become a problem. Ace in the past would straddle my leg sometimes when I was sitting on the floor playing with him and I sort of sensed by his actions that it may turn to humping so I just moved my leg where he couldn't straddle it and that was the end of that for the time being.

    Some will do this, so you need to tell him NO so he will learn it is not acceptable. Make him stop it.

    Tubby tried to hump his dad. David just corrected him and he hasn't done it again. This was about a week ago so at the age of 5 months.

    I know its wrong but after he tried to hump him I had to walk away I was laughing so hard. Clearly Tubby sees me as the leader of the pack

    That's what we did with our bullmastiff who ended up weighing in at 140 pounds! He learned quickly that it wasn't acceptable!--thank goodness!
