    yep. Zoe did it as a pup. We discouraged it everytime she did it, and now she doesn't hump at all.

    You know it's not a sexual thing, right?

    I suggest to continue the discouragement. One of our friends thought it was funny and let their dog get away with it. She is now 5 and still humps.

    good luck.

    Also I think that some dogs are just more inclined towards it than others. Baloo really isn't a humper, even now at nearly ten months old. But I have heard of puppies that hump much more, starting at a young age.

    Champ humped everything in sight from the day we brought him home at 8 weeks - his blankie, his toys, the couch. His favorite thing to do was to try to climb up the tug-of-war toy and hump it! Needless to say we discouraged this behavior, and he's been relatively hump-free for a few months now (he's 1 year). He'll still try to get away with it every once in a while when he thinks we aren't looking (ie, we'll walk in on him on our bed trying to hump the blankets) but he stops as soon as he gets "caught."

    We discourage Boo from her attempts at humping but she only tries to hump Rush and only occasionally. Still, I don't want a humpy hound living here. ;D

    One of my pups was humping its littermate at 2 weeks of age. Couldn't see or hear but sure knew how to hump. That boy was a humping machine.

    It was probably Jake....because Ruby is a little humper also. She humped Aidan and Emma at that age. :
