A while back I was hanging out with my friend and his this dog came walking up and my friends male dog went and started trying to mate with the other dog and that dog also tried to mate with my friends dog. A few hours went buy and 2 other male dogs showed up and my friends dog tried mating with those 2 dogs to. Is this a common thing or is it abnormal. Ive never seen that happen in my entire life.


It was hilarious.

I will second what JB said. Humping is not sexual.

More often times than not, humping is not a dog trying to mate. The only time it is, is when there is a female in heat involved.

It's interesting that there are folks who find it entertaining. Those who allow this behavior are running the risk that their happy humper will run onto a dog like Esther who will not be amused.

Humping is usually caused by excitement, at least around here. I find it rude, so I always stop it when the dogs hump each other, us or the cats. They are allowed to hump blankets, stuffed animals, but it's not encouraged.

Some dogs will also hump as a way to initiate play. A 'dominant' dog may growl or snarl if interrupted during the humping. A dog trying to play will not growl if he is trying to play, even if growled at.... however, he can get further aroused.

In any case, I do recommend discouraging the activity, because some dogs take humping as an attempt that will initiate a fight and bloodshed... regardless of the intent.

^ Agree.

We put a stop to Brady's humping pretty darn quick.
