Dogs "hump" for dominance. The "humper" is claiming a position over the other dog or human. Even female dogs will do this behavior.

Dogs hump for more reasons than just dominance. Often times, if the two dogs have no behavioral problems outside of just them humping each other, they are doing it in play. If they seem to fight over other things such as food, water, bed space, then correction is definitely need.

It would help to know which dog is dominant in the first place; if you can't tell naturally, the dominant dog will walk through gates/doorways before the submissive one and likewise drink and eat first. The submissive one is likely to give up his or her food as well. If the male is dominant and humps obsessively, a correction is in order. If you find that the female is dominant, then they are just probably playing.

As far as submission, dogs will willingly submit to their leader; forced submission is a waste of time and gains you no respect. The quickest way to gain respect from your dogs by being THE leader (to stop the humping) is by controlling their food and feeding time. Make them perform tricks for food such as sitting, lying down, staying and letting you put the bowl all the way on the ground before rushing to eat.

If you want him to stop, you need to firmly say NO! and maybe flick the end of his nose not too hard but just enough to get his attention.

it enjoys the sexual feeling it gets when rubbing against a female. (it gets a booner)

Dogs do not view sex as humans view sex. A dog will, at times, hump anything. A lot of times, a male dog will actually hump other male dogs and that is due to a fight for dominance. So yes, a male dog will hump a fixed female.

A male dog will hump anything, not just female dogs that are able to breed. But a female dog that has been fixed still has some of the smells that attract a male dog.

It may not have been completely fixed.

He will try to mate with her, stand up on her back & hump her. If she is not fixed she will get pregnant.

If your female cat is fixed aund another male cat is not fixed your female cat should not be attracted to the male cat but the male cat could be attracted to your female cat. ;)

no.the male who has been fixed does not produce semen needed to fertilize the females egg. He may hump her, but that's just nature.:) no because if the male dog is fixed he can't impregnate any dog... that's the point in getting a dog fixed...

When a dog goes into heat, whether it be a male or female, the natural reaction is to act in a humping motion. Male or female will hump live animals or stuffed animals.

Humping is a sign of dominence. Dogs (male or female) hump other things to show dominence.

Rabbits of both sexes sometimes hump other rabbits for dominance purposes (showing the other rabbit who's boss). When a female humps a male, that's the reason why -- it's not about sex.

I have a male that does it to everything. Not something we particularly like to see, but it is normal.

Male dogs "spray", hump, and take off to look for female dogs in heat.
