    Default Humping puppy.

    Hey guys,

    My puppy has recently learned how to hump. Air, other dogs, and so forth. I would like to nip this in the bud so I don't wind up with a male who I have to worry about him humping someone when I have company over. He's only 10 weeks old so I don't really want to go slapping around on him and making him hand shy. I was hoping someone had some insight on what I can do to influence his adult behavior now. My mom is adamant about HATING male dogs "because, they hump everything!" And I really want to prove her wrong with this one. Lol let me know what ideas or things you have done in the past so that I don't have to romp on him. Thank you for your time.

    Mrman

    Somefolks will say it's a Dominance thing. some folks will say it's a puppy practicing life skills. Either way it's easy enough to distract them away from it

    I think it is testosterone, and they need it for proper growth. But, they need to learn that people are NO-NOs, they normally get over it 12-15 mos old. Easiest way is if you have an Alpha Bitch around, let them play together, she will teach him manners.

    The "right decision"to a retriever is generally that decision which feels good or is the most convenient.So its the trainers job to teach the dog that what feels good is that which pleases the trainer.
