ANSWER #13 of 38

Get your dog neutered, he will probably stop straight away. DON'T give him a female dog to 'have sex with for fun' because they only mate because it is their natural instinct to do so. Take away the urge by neutering and the dog will be happier and friendlier, and will stop humping things

Look up neutering on a well known dog website, it is perfectly safe and there are a lot of benefits, like your dog living longer, it is definately worthwhile

ANSWER #20 of 38

Wow no one stated the actual reason that dogs hump each other besides the obvious. It has nothing to do with reproduction at all if the female is not in heat or ots 2 males or 2 females. It is establishing dominance. The dog humping is showing the weaker one dominance by degrading them. This is the real reason and a proven fact. To get them to stop is a tough one. The only way that works for me is just to get their attention and they stop for the time being but you have to be consistant and stick with the word your gonna say to stop it. Show that alpha dog that you are the alpha by not letting it hump the other dogs and they will get the hint eventually. Good Luck.

ANSWER #23 of 38

Lol dogs love humping the only thing I can say if whenever your dog humps something you could call the dog off it (if your dog follows instructions) lol.


ANSWER #24 of 38

you should probably get her spayed. my female used to do that a few days before she came into heat. please if your not going to use her for breeding or show spay her or you will end up with unwanted pups. but if you want pups and willing to give them your all to keep them safe and healthy thats kool too. just take care of her.
hope I helped :)


ANSWER #25 of 38

Hello you are the master not the dog. You are the alpha dog. If you firmly say NO! or ATTT! and push the dog down or correct by putting it out or in it's crate. It will stop.

Dogs are smart you can train them to stop this behavior just like any other. DO not let the dog do it. ALso keep your dog on a leash with you when you are training, in the same room with you. This is how you train.

Would you let a child do this? No. train your pet.


ANSWER #26 of 38

ANSWER #27 of 38

My dog is 1 year old. He was neutered at 6 months old. Started humping other dogs at the dog park around 3 months ago. The vet said that it is a dominance thing and he should outgrow it. "Should" is the opperative word here. In the meantime, I just fpush him off the other dog and firmly tell him "No". This seems to be working. He attempts to hump less and less each time we go to the park.


ANSWER #28 of 38

I don't know how to stop your dogs from "humping", but I have a cat that does the same thing.
SPANKING is NOT a way to train/punish your pet. They don't understand why you are hitting them, and it will either make them aggressive, or withdrawn.
NEVER hit your pet!
Ask your vet what is the best way to discipline your animals!
Good Luck!

ANSWER #33 of 38

I just brought home a 4 month old female puggle. My 3 year old male beagle (neutered) won't leave her alone. I was a little surprised at the male. He was neutered at about five months of age and he has never tried mounting anything before. I understand it is probably just the dog showing that he is dominant, but will he ever stop???


ANSWER #34 of 38

I spoke with my vet about it and if your pet is nueterd or spayed it is a dominance behavior issue. His advice was to us a squirt gun or bottle you need to have a deterrent. My dog is sensitive and you cannot spank him but this seemed like helpful advice.


ANSWER #35 of 38

The Humping of altered animals is just the way they establish dominance. They are saying I am the boss. It does not matter whether its male or female. This is not a human/sex thing lolol This is how animals establish themselves. If they are humping a human it is for the same reason.


ANSWER #36 of 38

I have a 6 month jack russell. I am taking training classes with him and I was told to roll him and correct as soon as I see that behavior because it is never a sexual act at his age, but rather a show of dominance.

I was thought the roll over technique which I swear by now.
You roll on back placing 2 fingers at neck where a mother would place her mouth, the other 2 fingers on the belly. Never with force or with anger always with calmness displaying a correction gently but assertive. He is to stop eye contact and basically relax and calm down. You hold down by saying "NO" , not a scream but a strong no.
At first it takes a while a few minutes they will struggle but you keep calm and continue , DO NOT LET HIM ESCAPE YOU! He is to stay under your thumb till complete surrender and it must be done calmly always giving direct eye contact till he looks away and is relaxed. Once he is totally calm,looking away, almost in a state of rest do you release by saying ok you can go. You will see that after each time he will understand what you expect of him and the respect is unbelievable. My 10 yr old has mastered this technique and our jack russell no longer dares to do that to him or anyone entering our home. Good luck, this works but you must be as calm as you want him to be. good luck
