Humping is behavior that is not as sexual as we humans make it. It is a sign of dominance. IMO.
you know Julie , I'm going to differ with you with that last statement.

I'm with Dave on this one...

Coach was snipped at about 8 months. Still humps although not as much. Definitely goes for the propping up his toys to get the best friction.... enuf said.

Everybody is very helpful! I guess is better to wait until he gets a little older. He is still a baby. How much does it cost? Would insurance cover most of it?

Humping is a form of dominence

I was told this by our dog group's animal behaviorist. We had Jazi spayed at 12 months because our breeder told us her females came into heat later. Even the females hump.

That's fine Dave....I said in my opinion.
I know that the intact males I deal with at work that try to hump me are not finding my legs sexually stimulating.

Good one Julie But actually that example is one that is definitely not a dominance play. Dominance in animals is between like species. Mounting can be part of a dominance display in context with other behaviors at the same time. See the articles . It is primarily a sexual hardwired behavior , a form of play, a form of tension relief. The behaviorists that study this pretty much in the same boat. Dominance is the most understood behavior in dogs . I have 75 articles on it and it has been studied extensively. Here's the articles if you're interested.

Ok I'm going to jump in here... why does Diva hump her bed? She never humps anything else, much less me or any other person. I didn't know humping was something girl dogs did so I was surprised the first time!

Is this something I should discourage? It doesn't really bother me... but I guess it could be embarrassing if company is here!

I had planned to wait till he was 12 months old, so he could grow, but he started to mark human females, at about 5-6 months old. one time, on a hav group walk he marked (tried to) 3 women. got him fixed soon after that. he started to lift his leg to mark at 18 wks old.
