Wha is best way to curb humping?
 
I put this question in the middle of another thread about humping. I should have started a new thread, so here it is.

My intact 10 month old male has been friends with a spayed female corgi two months older than he is since he was four months old. They have always played rough, taking turns with chasing each other and tripping each other . . . well, ok . . . body slams. http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...PPA3O6zL_D.gif

My pup has JUST started humping her and I want it to stop before it gets out of hand. It isn't acceptable in my opinion. (He doesn't hump anything or anyone else.) Is the best way to pull him off and then distract him with a yummy treat and his favorite toy? What happens if he continually ignores me?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

In my opinion, if you ignore it, they are going to continue doing it.

I'd calmly, take him by the collar, and get him off of her, and work on him learning the meaning of "leave it"..''

Had a male aussie that used to do this when I first got him, it wasn't a sexual thing, but a control thing, I hauled him off the other dogs maybe twice, and when he even "thought" about doing it, was rightthere to stop it, he never did it again.

Thanks, JakodaCD. I think I'm going to try that. We are meeting with the Corgi tomorrow. If he tries to hump, I'll pull him away and TRY to distract him with his ball or a treat. He was very focused on her.

If that fails, what do think about leashing him for a few minute timeout?

Oh, shepherdmom, he'll be neutered in a couple of months -- he has an undescended testicle. :eek:

too bad the other dog doesn't give him a nice strong correction. Most often when other dogs correct the 'offender' it is more valuable than when we try to stop the behavior.

don't just ignore it ever
it has to be corrected but in a very matter of fact manner
"whoops we dont do this"
and remove the dog
one of these days if you continue to ignore it he will hump the wrong dog and get his behind handed to him

Isn't that a Misinformation Thursday subject?
