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.
