How do you stop a puppy humping?

Postby carol » Sun Sep 20, 2009 9:58 am

Our 3mth old puppy started humping yesterday.  We had family over for my daughter's birthday , my SIL started patting him etc when he started humping her arm and leg.  How do you teach them not to do this?

humping sometimes is a dominace issue... best thing is obviously stop the behaviour... turn your back on the dog and ignore it... if you give it attention usually it only reinforces the behaviour.... sometimes its due to hormones aswell... usually its female dogs which do it... quite often we start laughing when they do it and sometime encourage its behavior by makign a fuss when it happens... best thing is to read the signs which tell you it maybe getting into that mood and stop it before it can do it... and be consistant... most training is about consistancy...
