OMG. Santos is a Humper

He's NEVER done it before, but I saw him do it several times yesterday...to the other dogs, and to a cat! What's up with that?? He was neutered the day he turned 6 months old, so I know he's not really looking to get some, right? I never had a humper...why do they do it?

BTW, Beamer would be proud.

Kim, Santos & Brew

It's a dominance thing. He is trying to tell everyone and everything that he is Alpha Dog. The female JR we had would do it to any critter she could get a hold of, dog, cat, kitten...it didn't matter. She was going to let them know she was in charge. My female Yorkie did it as well. The yorkie was definitely alpha in the 4 legged part of the pack.

Join the club Kim. I have two equal opportunity humpers. It is a display of dominance. Cash humps Jasper when Jasper is going crazy and unbalanced at the door or mailman. Jasper Humps Cash right as I tether him to be groomed or tether him for a walk-- neither are Cash's strong suit. But they also do it as part of play...I can always tell who is feeling the most confident by who is doing the humping.




Missy, Jasper & Cash

We have a boy and a girl and they each hump the other at times. I think Missy is right about who is feeling most confident, because they switch off. We think that Pixie is the boss, but sometimes she rolls on her back for Rascal. They are pretty evenly matched! I don't think the humping is anything to worry about (we just bring our Victorian sensibilities to a natural dog behaviour!).

Both my boys are equal opportunity humpers as well. Once in awhile it's been the humpalong train, with one of them humping the other and the humpee, trying to attach to my arm. That's where I draw the line. I will not be low man on the totem pole (ahem!)

Irina~ get used to it. Ryan often makes us with his comments

Kim~ Hard to believe it, but my sweet little Tori has been seen humping other dogs a time or two I think she just wants them to know that "dynamite comes in small packages"

Cody is an equal opportunity humper also. At our play group he's just a humpin' fool.

And Tess surprised me the other night by humping Cody. She's come so far!

Jill! That is wonderful about Tess...
ok, I know that really sounds strange, but still, it is a great thing that she has come this far.
