Um, pretty sure my dog is trying to mount me...

It's been a weird evening. We've walked, we've played, but over the last couple hours he has repeatedly been approaching me all chest first (I'm sitting on the ground at a low table) and immediately putting a paw up on me in a dominant sort of way (I'm no dog expert). Then he'll proceed to go up a bit, using the couch as leverage, and by looking at his hip area I can just tell that he's moments away from some sort of humpage. It's weird. He's also been maneuvering for little nibbles at my shoulder area (again, cuz I'm sitting on the ground).

WTF! There's more too, I just can't quite describe it. It's mainly in the way that he approaches me though, like I said, chest first, straight into my shoulder....he wouldn't have invaded my space like that before.

Now I've been using all positive methods up until now but suddenly I'm wondering, am I supposed to be "alpha rolling" him or something right now?? Like wtf?! He's climbing up me in that assertive way (at the very least trying to paw up on my back, something he hasn't done before today) - that's the best case scenario; worst case he's trying to hump me.

I remember the time Kip tried that at about 9 or 10 months old. I was on my hands and knees fiddling with the rat cage when Kip jumped me from behind. I turned around with a tremendous yell--no need to alpha roll this dog, he was already hitting the floor. I grabbed the loose skin around his neck, stuck my face in his and in my most menacing voice, boot camp sergeant style, told him that if he EVER tried that AGAIN, I would................Actually, I don't remember what threat I used, but he must have gotten the hint because he never tried that behavior again.

Actually, I have no idea what I SHOULD have done; I reacted simply on impulse. I am curious to hear from folks here what the best way would be to deal with this behavior.

I have never had that happen to me, guess I'm not as attractive as you people are

A little read on Alpha Roll and other things.

I did something sorta similar - inbetween laughs that is, because he went about it in the funniest of ways.

I think the laughs prevented me from the strong finish you described! Not sure if he got the picture or not though. Oh well, I'll be ready next time.

Jolt has never tried to hump me, but we've been having that issue with other dogs/certain toys, and I just use a very loud, firm "NO" when he does it and he gets the picture. He hasn't done it in a long time; so I think it's worked (but he's still a puppy, so I'm not sure). I've also heard that for situations like that, if the dog doesn't like water, use a squirt bottle.

I had something similar happen at work one time, only with a 165lb intact Mastiff (I weigh 110lb LOL) when I was bending over doing something. I just reacted out of instinct and turned around and grabbed his neck rolls and threw him off me as hard as I could while using my best angry voice. He seemed to get the message and didn't try it again... I'm sure I could have handled it better but I wasn't about to get humped by such a huge dog LOL, if he got me pinned I doubt I would be able to fight him off and would have to call for reinforcements hahahaha (my boss would NEVER let me live that down!!!)

Kate: I'll keep the squirt bottle in mind.

For the record, just wanted to re-iterate, Jack didnt really ever hump me. ALSO, I meant to add...only cuz it was strange...that Jack repeatedly licked my forearms rather obsessively. On each ocassion. At first I assumed it was just cuz of the natural amount of sweat we tend to accumulate in the crooks of our arms, but he kept at it wellbeyond when any of the aforementioned sweat would've lasted. Strange.

Lol disco...there is a huge intact male Akita that boards with us and one time one of the kennel techs was on his knees cleaning the glass wall of his run with his back facing him and he straight up mounted him and tried to go to town!

There is a senior lab that's been boarding with us for the past week and he actually tried to hump ME and another daycamp counselor! I was thoroughly disgusted by the old pervy lab!

I've never had personal dogs or fosters try to mount me but if they did we would have a serious coming to Jesus chat! Prime started humping other dogs around 7 months, I fixed that issue up real quick with the dogtra. He is a very well behaved young intact male around other dogs now.

We had a pervy senior lab that used to board with us who (I kid you not) was called Dick. He was always humping something, other dogs, blankets, legs, people, rubbish bags...... he was deaf as well so yelling at him to stop molesting the rubbish bag was no good, it was VERY hilarious though. His favorite people were the young school girls that used to come in on the weekends hahaha. Very harmless, but very, very disgusting. He was a sucker for a girl (or boy) bending over

Uh yeah, I had one foster hump me, he never tried to do that again. They get an I DON'T BLEEPING THINK SO and tossed off. Dogs humping humans is one thing that I can't tolerate.

Hehehehe.

Aw you guys have not lived until you've had a young cocky (pun intended) stallion try to hump you

Besides the verbal aversives which I think are just fine and appropriate for this sort of foolishness, you can play some space games with your dogs--we do this with horses too, to teach them to respect your space in the morning

Oh gosh, the horses are always doing this. Hope they don't get any ideas. LOL.

Honestly I think J only tried this one me once and all I had to do is look at him. He does it with other dogs though and at first I thought it was some kind of trying to be dominate thing but I've realized since that this is not always the case. They take turns and it is simply play. It is fun to do so they do it. He does it when playing with both his best male friends and they do it back and there has never been any spats between either of these dogs, whereas the male dog he doesn't do it to when playing, he will spat with over eating grass. Go figure. It's like he only does this with his "special" friends.

I am very glad I have managed to avoid young stallions (and bulls for that matter!), I can't imagine the horror (and the lols) one would feel when in that situation. I'm glad my own dogs have never tried to hump me, space games sound like a good idea, better than the distraction games we used to play (i.e. hold a tempting, sexy blanket up while making a dive for the empty food bowl while other staff members attempt to trap you in the kennel).

Dick always did provide some good laughs, I remember one afternoon when an inexperienced girl was taking nice dogs out for individual walks and one of the other staff members comes in doubled over laughing going "OMG Dick the rapist has *the girl* pinned in a corner and she can't get away". After both laughing about it for a bit I ran out to rescue her crying with laughter and yelling "No dick! Let her go! She's too young for this!". We never did tell his owner about it... his owner was a very posh, well spoken and well off older gentleman with an expensive car and flashy driving gloves... didn't feel right telling him his lovely elderly lab was a serial attempted rapist.

Besides the verbal aversives which I think are just fine and appropriate for this sort of foolishness, you can play some space games with your dogs--we do this with horses too, to teach them to respect your space in the morning
After working at a breeding farm I know just how this is. Fortunately these studs were quite popular so we shipped semen a few times a week...they got lots of action with the phantom...makes a big difference.

Hans never tried any funny business with me, but he did with friends, and my sister...he learned to contain his urges pretty quick though. ...so glad those days are over, ugh and the teeth clacking drove me CRAZY.

OMG! This thread is making me laugh!!! Melbrod , Discowhore- LMFAO!!
Funny story about my gramma and their intact male dog.
About 20 years ago(i just hear the story didnt have the pleasure of witnessing it lmao), they had a dog named Spike- not sure which spike he was but her LURVED my gramma it seems.
She was leaning over in the rocking chair and some how got behind her and started humping her back, my gramma would try to get out of the chair but the motion from the dog humping her made it an extremely difficult task!! LOL I WISH i could have seen that, i can picture it and it cracks me up!! LOL

LOL, some funny stories here. I still haven't seen Jack try to hump me yet. Pray it doesn't happen. Okay, so...humpage aside, cuz he wasn't really doing that, what do you do to your dog if he starts assertively trying to get in your face like that while playing? I mean, it was all fun and games but it definitely seemed like a dominance play of sorts. I just want to be sure I'm handling it the right way.

It is okay to tell your dog no if you don't like what they are doing. I don't like licking so I wouldn't allow it. If your dog does anything you are uncomfortable with, climbing on you, excessive licking, grabbing you with paw whatever it is. We are in charge of our dogs, we have to show them what is acceptable to us and what isn't. Every person is different with their comfort zones but don't be afraid to say NO, GET OFF. Do what melbrod did. It works, the dog understands and it is okay to do that.

For the record, just wanted to re-iterate, Jack didnt really ever hump me. ALSO, I meant to add...only cuz it was strange...that Jack repeatedly licked my forearms rather obsessively. On each ocassion. At first I assumed it was just cuz of the natural amount of sweat we tend to accumulate in the crooks of our arms, but he kept at it wellbeyond when any of the aforementioned sweat would've lasted. Strange.

I grabbed the loose skin around his neck, stuck my face in his and in my most menacing voice, boot camp sergeant style, told him that if he EVER tried that AGAIN, I would................Actually, I don't remember what threat I used, but he must have gotten the hint because he never tried that behavior again.

Actually, I have no idea what I SHOULD have done; I reacted simply on impulse. I am curious to hear from folks here what the best way would be to deal with this behavior.
Zac has tried it a couple of times and I did the same thing you did....I think my first attempt was not as angry as the second...He never did anything after that (both times around 9 months). Last night he awkwardly tried to position himself to hump my friends foot that was on a foot stool....it was only a foot and it was more funny then anything. My friend just went ummmm Zac? and Zac looked at him then moved away.

Tucker thought about it once...I saw that look in his eye & body language & gave him a stern word & that was it....but he has tried to mount my 5yo grandaughter...which I yelled at him & her for letting him....

Fully agree with Lori Z! If you don't like it, it's your choice to stop it - doesn't matter if it's any kind of dominant display or not (and most of the time isn't, most of the time is just immature silliness/testing). I also don't like licking, and am not a fan of multiple kisses on my face. A couple baby ones snuck in are OK, but I don't like face drenchings. Ick. So my dogs don't do it. Other people love that, and that's fine, but I won't let their dogs do it to me, either. I also don't like to be circled/stepped on/be bonked or have my space totally invaded when I'm doing things like putting on my "outside play" shoes. So they can act like fools and get excited, but they need to stay out of my bubble when I'm bending over. And then they need to "reel it in" before I'll put a collar or leash on them. (I'm so mean! Hahaha... no I just don't like to have my eye poked out. It hurts!)

Your job with a pushy adolescent male doberdork is to tell him what's OK and what's not, and he will continue to test, trust me. This is just the beginning. (mwahahahaaaaaa)

I am so glad to hear of other Anti-Dog-Kiss Anonymous people.

I hate that nasty drenchy stuff, geez. If someone wants their dog to do it, fine, but yick, no thank you, from me.

I also expect my guys to stay out of my bubble, and I expect them to part like the Red Sea if I'm moving about the house and need thru a narrow space--I am always amazed when I go to some of my relatives' houses and see them have to maneuver around their dogs, who seem to delight in blocking entryways and so forth, and stubbornly hold that position.

A brisk matter of fact "Excuse Me" or "Move" works just fine, and I have tried to teach them that, but, meh, it's family--they never listen.

LOL - I, too, hate to be kissed. Fiona is a HUGE kisser but she doesn't kiss me. She tries her damndest to kiss everyone else though and it drives me nuts. She's getting better about listening when I tell her "NO LICK!" but still...ugh, I hate it. I don't want her doing it to anyone!!

And Tali is one that when she gets super tired she doesn't like to move out of the way. She'll attempt to follow me half-heartedly around the house when I'm shutting things off and getting ready for bed but she'll stop in doorways to watch me and I'll have to push her out of the way while she looks up at me with the most exhausted eyes like, "Mom can we please just go to bed?" This is the dog that can and has fallen asleep standing up in training class though. LOL She can be a real slug when tired. Mellow girl.

A friend who has a Golden told me that their breeder said that direct eye contact will stop them in "mid hump". Lyn says it has always worked on her dogs to kill the mood.
