roscoe is the little itty bitty puppy you just got right? I bet he doesn't even know what he's doing or why he's doing it, so I wouldn't worry :|

If prong/verbal corrections haven't stopped the behavior, I would probably put Doc in a time out over this. It's pretty darn rude behavior. When he starts, tell him "TIME OUT" and grab him by the collar and cart him off to some boring area and put him in time out for a few minutes. Then let him loose. There's nothing a dog hates more than social isolation. Be consistant. I'd also start some NILIF with him to let him know that the only boss around your house is you.


oh, it's beyond rude, and we don't let him do it. doesn't stop him from trying though.

doc lives in a chronic state of working for his privileges, and he's not the kind of dog that responds to a simple prong or verbal correction . . . he needs to learn to work to earn everything and you constantly have to work to remind him of that. he's just lost most of his house privileges, for now, so he's back to square one: separated from the other dogs 90 percent of the time and restricted to 2 specific areas in the house (kitchen, basement) except when i have good reason to take him out to practice indoor obedience with him, bathe him, permit him a bit of time in a down/stay on lead and near my feet.

sucks for doc, but he obviously can't control himself with that much freedom in the house so he just can't have it.

he'll learn. it may take him till he's 12 years old. but he'll get it eventually.

i'm trying to do a similar thing with brooks, just take him down a few notches, but i'm not too far into it yet, have you had success with it? do you think he is starting to understand?

well, it's probably going to be an ongoing process . . . he was allowed out for a while yesterday and was praised for being calm and as soon as he started getting riled up (but before he even got so excited that he wanted to hump) we put him right back into the kitchen alone.

we did that again today.

and we'll do it over and over and over and over and over . . . until he finally starts to recognize that he only gets time in the house with us when he remains calm and in control.

Oh, I hope it works soon for your little manic humper...

Jessie gets kinda excited when it's time for a walk, whenever I get her coat off it's hook, and try to put it on her, she tries to grab it and hump it. Since she's technically in a sit, I just push her humping arse on the floor and tell her to stay. She dosen't think it's funny how she isn,t even allowed to hump her own stuff... lol

Occasionally she'll hump people at parties that are waaaay too nice with her (aka letting her lick them even in the mouth, EEW, playing fetch with her without making her do a sit or a trick first, even though I tell them ) and all of a sudden she decides to take all that love to the next level... By grabbing their leg and humping it. So I pull her off and make her do a long down stay. Boo hoo.

Tha only time I let her do it is when we were at a party and my friend's a*shole boyfriend was drunk and "too nice" with her. He passed by, she humped his leg and he tripped and landed on his face. Good for him (that guy really is scum). Mwahah.

Riggs has now started humping anyone / anything that is intact... including my father. He was not amused.

No, Riggs is a dominant little monster. He has not done it to me, and when he does he will have a CTJ moment like none he has ever seen. We have had a few issues around him acting dominant, but that will be waaaaay beyond what I will tolerate from him.

Is Riggs neutered? Just asking... Last you would want is have him finish it off on your dad... Or on anyone for that matter. Not that you would let that happen...

Though you may want to use him to chase away unwanted guests. Bye-bye, mother in law! lol *Nothing against Demo's mom here, it was just a funny image*...

No, he is not neutered and probably won't be as I am still competing with him.

He did not finish with my dad, as he was stopped as soon as he started. Yes he has finished on other things before.

He has not humped any females (human or canine), Ruby would kick the crap out of him, my cat would remove more than one body part, and I won't be kind either.

so I'm guessing that we don't think dominance plays a role in weather or not the dog finishes?

I was leaning towards thinking a dominant dog wouldn't finish...

but of course what michelle is saying is pretty well opposite.

Well, he only humps things that he would want to dominate - other males and bitework equipment. If he was just horny I would assume he would hump lots of things.

Guinness is a pushy people humper too :evil: And yeah, she humps people that allows her to walk allover them by, for example, having her "tell" them to pet her for instance.
Its frustrating and embarressing to say the least.
She will even have an attitude when getting smacked on the a$$ for doing it, which leads to another smack and a staring competition, which she has never won.

Ã…sa

Ps Best of luck with handsome Doc!!!
