    Default Female humping?

    So we've noticed that Ellie has started to hump things here and there, mostly some of her larger toys. The reading that I've done is that, for females, this is often a display of dominance and much like biting, chewing, etc, a consistent correction and redirection to something else often helps. So far it has, but there have been a handful of incidents. Ellie is just under 5 month and is scheduled to be spayed in about a month and a half. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with their female?

    Kaida has done that with her huge teddy bear, but it's so infrequent that I often think I'm just imagining that she's humping it, when she's really standing in a bad spot, moving funny - but now that I saw this - it's gotta be humping.

    She's tried to test her "dominance" with play biting, etc too - so it's likely that this was just another instance of her doing that. She's gotten tons better with listening, and when redirected - she'll stop with the biting.

    Lilly is almost 3 (spayed) and she humps Bruin ALL THE TIME. Ugh!!! We always tell her No or nudge her off of him and she comes back for more.

    She's just the dominant one

    I have a couple of girls that do it and usually it's when happy, excited or playing.

    Lily does that sometimes but only to my hubby.
    I don't know if it's a dominance thing or a excited thing..maybe a bit of both.
    We just make to sure to stop her and tell her no when she does do it.

    I think it can be a mixture of dominance and getting over-excited. I agree ... try to redirect and praise when the redirection works!!

    Brandi will do this on occasion. But never with toys. She is a Licker, & likes to spend her time licking my leg or foot, right before she falls asleep. There have been a few time she has started air humping while she was licking my leg, & this one time she tried to hump my nephew (LOL!!), who was wrestling with my daughter in the floor. But I think that one was just out of excitement. I'll say it's probably more of a Dominance thing.

    Sounds like we're all on the same page. Ellie has been good about stopping once she's told no and/or redirected to something else. I've only noticed it a couple of times, so thought I'd ask.

    Bea has done this exactly twice; most recently, three days ago!!! It caught me so off guard that I started laughing before I caught myself and simply disagreed with the behavior. When she was a pup - maybe six months old - she did this when we were up on "the big bed". It's a HUGE privilege to be allowed up there and I suspect that she was just over-excited by the prospect. I didn't make a production out of it. I just disagreed (I have my own version of Cesar Millan's Tssst") and she stopped.

    Now the most recent incident was actually kinda funny - but it was a result of the same thing; delirious happiness and excitement. We were strolling around the park up the street...not walking, so she was allowed to sniff anything and grab the occasional pine cone and run with it -- I was kicking them -- you know, playing around. Bea was particularly "hoppy" that afternoon. It's her way of being "over the top" happy to be doing whateveritis we're doing. She kind of gallops sideways.....anyway, we stopped and sat down in the shade, on a grassy hill. She was sitting behind me. The Jack Russell that lives in the house nearest the park was behind us all, going off, barking like a maniac - and they aren't allowed to react to that, so I think she kind of melted down and in order to deal with all of this, started to hump my back.

    I was so shocked by this, I had to laugh - but quickly recovered and disagreed with the behavior. Bea cracks me up!
