Humping like a college freshman, HELP!

Mariano is a little over six months now, and out of no where, he is a humper.

It started with a male black lab, then a male GSD, then a male Shiloh Shepard... I tried very hard to distract him and redirect his attention each time... but he is rather persistant.

Well yesterday, we came across the first girl he had an interest in, a pretty pitty named Maya. The issue is, Maya just came out of heat, and is not yet spayed... and her mother had her at a dog park!

Well Mariano thought Maya was there just for his humping... Maya told him no at first, so I let them work it out... then she stopped saying no, and we left the dog park lol.

How do I stop him from humping? Are our dog park days over now that he has this habit? Please help... He loves the dog park, and it really tires him out...

i'm sure others will have tips for you, but i wouldn't take him to the dog park until he's neutered if he's unable to resist humping other dogs.

Don't allow it! Humping is a dominance issue and is a quick way to get a fight started. Barring some idiot bringing a bitch in heat to the park.

Keep him on a leash and when you see him throw that paw up there call him to you and treat for responding, pull if he doesn't respond. You might want to teach him the "touch" or "look at me" command. Do you have him in an obedience class? That would be good for him..and advance his classes up.

Consistency. Look very carefully for the first body language he is going to hump. Usually you can see something even if it's very tiny. Havoc will occasionally try to hump when he is over aroused. It is not sexual or dominant in this particular case, and still unacceptable. I can see him starting, I call him to me and redirect. If you miss the early sign, just keep removing him from the situation. It might mean you standing right by him. I would not do this training at the dog park though.

I intervene. I don't wait for the dogs to work it out usually.

I have a male intact 7 1/2 month old collie. His nickname is Rico Suave. LOL. I correct humping period. I don't allow humping on other dogs nor on pillows or dog beds. I say, "AH AH...noooo" and I remove him from what he is humping. At 6 1/2 months he was just starting to lift his leg and began his little humping period. I stopped it and he hasn't humped anything in a few weeks. I have to keep him intact because he is a potential show dog. He did try humping my doberman a few times, doberman didn't care "then" but I didn't want any problems when male pup was grown, humping is a rude, dominant behavior in a household or dog park. It is normal of course but I wanted my male to understand it was frowned upon in this house.

I can't imagine him being around a bitch in heat with his new surging hormones. I would not be taking your dog to a dog park unless he is neutered and I would keep him on a line to discourage humping at his age. I've had several unaltered males in my life and once they understood I didn't like da hump dance they stopped. Fighting can occur if you let them work it out and frankly I wouldn't allow that, especially with a breed like a doberman, once their ire is roused they can see red.

It is not allowed behavior at my house either re-direct him,keep him leashed or on a long line give him a sharp ATT sound just put a stop to it. One day he will try it and a dog will take him out huge fight.

Add me as another member who doesn't allow humping. Period. It's rude and dangerous.

Dreizehn tried it once and I acted as if the world was ending. Scared the daylights out of him and he hasn't tried it since (except with his "boyfriend" but I don't count that).

So I have taken the advice here, and started making a huge deal when I even see him think about it. He is just like WHAT?! While the dog of interest nearly pees everytime, and the other owner looks like they want to hit me lol.

I think I am going to work more on his recall, get it even more solid, and do the call off and take his attention off it road so I do not scare any more innocent dogs lol.

Yeah, neither his actions or your reactions sound like appropriate dog park behaviour. I wouldn't be happy with that interaction at all if my dog were involved.

Haha probably a good idea. Dreizehn's first and only real humping behavior, lucky for me, was while I was working at daycare and the dog he was doing it to was pretty damn bullet proof so no freaking out on Rudy's part. If the other dog was a dog-park dog with a random owner I probably would have gone and pulled my dog off and simply left - it's too risky to piss a random dog park person off. Some of them are insane, lol

I wouldnt tolerate my dog humping for even one second, hopefully your dog stops that behavior. The only "fight" he has been in is when my friend's dog tried to hump him, he flipped out. I dont even like other dogs humping other dogs at the dog park and will stop them immediately
