Oh no, my Pixie is doing that??

I'm over my parents for a week watching the house and their two tzus. Of course Pixie is here and is having a great time playing. I thought I saw her humping the 11 year old who outweighs her by about 10 pounds, but I shrugged it off. Well I just caught her doing it again! She doesn't do it to the 4 year old, who is much more timid than the 11 year old. Is this something I need to "nip in the bud" now? Do all puppies do this (she's 6 months)? It's kinda hysterical, yet it's going to get embarrassing if/when she does it around anyone else. She's going to be spayed in the next couple of weeks, if that makes any difference in behavior.

Do you mean 11 yr old dog or child lol?

While it may be funny I would nip it in the bud right away with a firm no and pull her off. Otherwise, as I've seen from other dogs, it becomes a real nuisance.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...

I immediately distract Max because I'm hoping it doesn't become a regular behavior (he's neutered). He's a little over a hear old and so far, distraction has worked.

My three take turns being the humper!! I think it is normal. Two are fixed females and one a neutered male. Who knows why they do it????

I didn't see the "two tzus" part so I wasn't sure. But I reread it obviously now. Still my opinion hasn't changed lol

I just realized I'm a sexist!!! When Vinny tried to hump anything I told him no and he never got the habit. Boys just shouldn't do that!!
When Lulu humps my or DH's arm we think it's cute! She only goes after our arms at night in bed when she wants us to play with only her.
Bad me. I should at least be fair about the humping and let Vinny be an equal opportunity humper!

You should try to stop it, although who knows what it is all about. Lola only humps her best friend, Lefty. Well, he is her husband as they share a bed when she stays at his house...maybe that has something to do with it.
