All right, explain this to me. He has been neutered for years. Little C has been spayed. Practically overnight we have gone from Little C is annoying and icky to Little C is one hot little number. He has started humping everything in sight. He has tried going after Little C, but she just puts her tail down and ignores him. He isn't quite sure about how to go about getting what he wants from her anyway. So, I've got one heck of a horny dog to deal with. Perhaps I should let him hump a pillow till it's out of his system? Oh, and what is really sad is that Little C is not even teasing him by flashing her behind at him like she does with Marshy. And no, she doesn't have a thing for Marshy...when he tries to take her up on her offer, she either moves out of the way very quickly or snaps at him. With Sir N, she just puts her tail down and continues whatever she was doing.

Hmmmm, coincidentally something very similar is happening here but it is not with Kallie... it is with a pillow. Catcher is 11 months old, neutered, and has never humped anything ever. Then a couple nights ago he was humping like no tomorrow with the pillow that is in his crate.... It was so weird to see my sweet, innocent baby doing that!!


I wonder what brings these things on? Wonder why Sir N and Catcher are suddenly in to humping? :new_Eyecrazy:

Didn't either of you hear that in the Spring, a young man's fancy turns to love???

Seriously, just because they are neutered doesn't mean that males lose all of their instincts. This is the time of year with the longer daylight hours and warmer weather that the females are coming into heat. I'm wondering if there is a female dog in heat nearby (the scent travels for miles) and companions and pillows are the only thing available.

I friend up in New York who bred Golden Retrievers. They had a neutered male rescue who was actually able to mate with one of the females (although, of course, no puppies resulted).

Boys will be boys!

Lady's Mom,

So you are saying that Sir N is twitter-pated?


I'm a little worried that he will manage to do it with Little C. He's three times her size. What if she gets hurt? I'm sure it'd be the thrill of his life--he's still a virgin. And if she were bigger, I wouldn't really worry about it. But, she's so tiny....

Too funny!

It also could be a dominance issue according to this:

My male dog keeps trying to mount my spayed female dog. What should I do?
Category: Canine


What can I do to get my male dog to leave my female dog alone? He keeps sniffing her and trying to mount her all of the time. She has been fixed ever since she was 10 weeks old. Is she still giving some sort of scent even though she has been fixed? I feel so bad yelling at my male dog all of the time to leave her alone. This has been going on for at least two months. HELP!
Neuter the dog if he is intact and consider behavior modification.



This problem is not likely due to your female dog. My first question for you is whether or not your male dog is neutered. If he is not, he will continue this behavior. Testosterone is a potent hormone and will cause many male dogs to mount things. I would recommend that you consider neutering him if he is not already.

The other possibility is that he is doing this as a means of showing dominance. How long have the two dogs been together? Most dogs work this issue out within the first two to three months of being together.

Mounting behavior is not limited to male dogs. Unspayed females and sometimes spayed ones may also engage in mounting behavior. In the latter situation, the dog may be trying to "tell" everyone that she thinks that she is the boss. In the former case the mounting behavior may result from either hormone-related factors or from dominance behavior.

Mounting behavior directed at people is usually a sign of dominance-aggression. In such cases the dog’s owner should consider basic obedience training with the dog. These classes can teach dogs to be less dominant with owners and can help to deter dogs from mounting others.

If your male dog is already neutered, and if the two dogs do not seem to have any issues with which one is the "boss," you may want to consider using distractions or deterrents to get the male dog to stop. You should also consider basic obedience training with your dog.

Consult your veterinarian about this problem. The doctor may perform a physical examination and conduct some blood tests. Occasionally this behavior may be treated with medication. Otherwise, the veterinarian may refer you to an animal behaviorist in your area.

That might be the issue between Sir N and Little C, but doesn't explain Catcher's behavior! If he's trying to dominate a pillow, he has some serious issues! :lol:

Well, maybe he has finally realized what Little C has been doing behind him all these months. Because she is so little, all she manages to hump is the air behind him.
I didn't realize that he was even aware of what she was doing. He cracked down her trying to hump his head, but I think that was because he could see her and knew what she was doing.

Hmmm....well, if Sir N is wanting to be dominant over Little C, then I'm all for it! She could stand to be taken down a peg or two and maybe it'd teach her a lasting lesson to respect those older and bigger than she. However, he isn't only trying to go after her--there are also the pillows. And, I didn't mention it before, but also my backpack, the covers on the bed, the kangaroo he got from his secret santa, the edge of the door, and my leg and foot. (Though that was when they were concealed under the covers and I'm not sure he realized what he was humping. He also stopped immediately when I told him off.)

This smilie seems appropriate for the overall topic, but I couldn't decide exactly where to put it.

Our spayed female pitbull used to try to hump my son and husband. It was whenever she would get excited...Mostly if Randy and Evan were wrestling. It wasn't really a dominance thing it was more a I'm so excited I want to play and you won't let me so I am going to hump you.

For Tini I think it was just her trying to show you that she was the one in charge.

It is kind of up to you. If you don't like her to do it then correct her. Tell her no and then distract her with a toy or something. Lexi only did it once to a toy. I told her NO! and she has never done it again.

Tuffy has been a humping machine lately too!.. he has this one toy that is a little white dog and boy, he loves that little white dog. I've many times taken it away from him but he looks at me with those huge puppy dog eyes and I can't help but give it back. I'm just hoping that he won't try that with little Pixie.. at least he's neutered!

Marj, it is weird because even though Catcher is dominant over Kallie he has never tried to hump her.... sometimes he will jump on her rear area for maybe a second and she does the same to him. This thing with the pillow was some serious humping though... he was like in another world!
(Just had to use the "hump" smilie again!!!)

BTW, he didn't do it last night!! Yea!

My girls are humpers too
specially Maya. when daezie has chew in her mouth or a toy Maya goes crazy humping her from head to tail

Maya looks so funny doing that to Daezie and Daezie after a while would snap at her and Maya stops.

Daezie has done it just a few times to Maya. But the alpha of 2 is Daezie, so who knows

That's another thing Tuffy has been doing.. marking like a fiend!! He started marking a few weeks ago just randomly around the house!!! It's so weird because he's never had the urge to mark at home! I swear, I thought he was gearing up for the new puppy by marking his territory.. This morning the little [email protected]#$ peed all over Pixie's new bed! Argh!
