    DefaultExcessive humping

    My labrador is 4 years old now and for the past couple of days he has been going crazy with humping. He will not leave my sister and her blanket alone. He always used to hump but never this much in consecutive days. He is also not fixed. I dont know why he is doing this. He knows its wrong because he gets yelled at. I just dont know what or if there is anything i can do. Any suggestions or comments?

    Humping people is totally unacceptable. What happens when he s doing this (besides yelling)? He should be physically removed fom your sister and either put in a down/stay or otherwise redirected to some other pleasurable activity (fetch, walk).

    This could be due to him being bored/under-stimulated. Why is he not neutered? That will help some but humping is a training issue more than anything else.

    Could one of your neighbors have a female in heat?

    I have an intact male I show that humps alot...every time we get back from showing it takes two weeks for him to calm down. It is such a pain. And honestly I am thinking about neutering him because he is so hormonal. I think some dogs are just more sexual than others, because I never had a problem with my intact rottweiler.

    Will this dog be used for stud service? If not, then you can be a bit more enthusiastic in your disapproval than you would if he were to be used. Instead of yelling, take him by the collar, give him a bit of a shake of the wrist and growl out "NO!" No yelling, a growling sound. Usually, you can tell when they start to get excited and you can growl out "NO!" before he does it.

    At 4, there is no reason why you can't now neuter him.
