Question humping

Have read a bit about humping but am still confused as to how to interpret my girl's behavior. Cici will now hump me every night when I get into bed( she is there already). Never at any other time or with her brother. He will then hump her at the same time. It's really quite bizzarre. She is definitely more aggresive about it when he is there also.

Any interpretation, senior members?

I am also wondering about their precious habit of burrying special things with their snout. Our male will " burry" me with the covers at night. Do you kids do this too?

Such a fascinating breed!

Thanks,
deb

Many dogs, male and female, will hump if they get over-excited. Not sure why getting into bed causes such excitement, but this is the ONLY time Kodi will try to hump (people) too.I don't care if dogs hump each other in play (as long as they are both OK with it) but I do NOT like dogs humping people. So I stop it. I firmly move him off me, and tell him to down. One he's paying attention to me again, I tell him he's a good boy, stroke him a little, and he usually curls up and goes to sleep. Often he'll want to get on top of me again, but then it's just for snuggles… no humping.

Brody humps when we go to bed too. He likes to go to town on my pillow. This wouldn't be so bad except, of course, it's right next to my head. He also thinks it's great to lay his head on my shoulder while he molests my pillow. He knows I don't like it, but we go through it every night. I don't know why he can't just take a toy and molest it at the end of the bed and leave me out of it. Silly dog.

Leo is permitted to hump his toy bear but no dogs and no people - ever! I am very consistent about stopping this behavior.

quite normal , and only as inappropriate as what you deem it to be. Quite often triggered by the same set of circumstances.

Thanks so much. I feel better that others of you have had the same experience. Love the image of Brody! Too funny. Will limit the action a bit now.
But do yours do the cute burying behavior with their nose?
BTW, we were big dog folks before, specifically enamored with Berners, but now could not exist w/o our Havanese!!!
Thanks again.

humping is about dominating and claiming property. and it can easily become an obsessive behavior. Personally, I always discourage it.

Kodi "digs" with his paws, but I haven't noticed him doing the nose thing you mention.
