A girl and her dog LOL! My Chi was a humper. He humped Nonny as soon as I brought Nonny home. My 'no' signal for him is "Ah Ah!" and with that he would stop. Now he doesn't do it anymore. However, Nonny humps my daughter when she's within reach. I use the same correction for him. Neither of them ever tried to hump me, just other people.
George, the Chi, started humping toys at around 3-4 weeks. (I got him at 2wks - mother w/milk fever). I do find that it is a reflexive behavior in young puppies, but is a dominance dance in older pups.

You should be able to curb it with your usual correction routine. And, like everyone else said, if that doesn't work, take it a step further and leash/time out him.

I thought I was the only emasculating hump-hater out there, lol!

ETA- I have seen adult males hump other males too. It's got nothing to do with gender. And yes, neutering will help.

JakodaCD OA yes, I would snap a leash on him with a time out, but I would also put a word with the action..like "leave it",,or "knock it off now!"..

I tend to not use the word "no",,too nagging in my opinion..

Baillif It vanishes with discipline if you have it. Once they know no can come with an unpleasant consequence then it bleeds into everything. They hump you say no and even if there wasn't a consequence for that particular action before they will usually get the point and stop.

ZoeD1217 My female humps me, the kids and pillows or pretty much anything else she can bunch up. She won't grab our legs like I remember my dogs growing up doing but If you're laying on the floor she will hop on. We just remove the item or stand up and find something else for her to do. I assume she will grow out of this. Lol hopefully...

Diesel7602 I was shocked because I didn't expect it from a little guy.

David Winners Why humping is so shocking to people is beyond me. Puppies practice adult behavior in play all the time. Humping is no different. It is a behavior that is hard wired into the dog for survival.

If you want it to stop, either put the dog in time out every time it happens, or give a correction.
