Why do dogs hump other dogs?
Does your dog like to hump other dogs?
Humping behavior is actually quite natural in dogs. Contrary to what you might think, humping is not always sexual. It’s also not really related to dominance as some people used to think. Dogs usually hump each other as a part of normal play. They may also playfully hump objects and people. Excitement (non-sexual) and attention seeking may also be reasons for humping.
Humping of objects is only a problem if it really bothers you. When it comes to humping people, you will probably want to break this habit for your house guests’ sake. Often, the solution is walking away from the dog and denying attention until humping stops.
