In the last couple of weeks Betty has started to hump!! I was quite shocked when I first saw her do it as A) she had never done it before and B) I didn't realise bitches did it at all!!

Initially It was only with Ted ( she would hump his front end or back end:eek::eek:) but she has now tried it on with another couple of dogs.

Is this an age thing ( she is now 14 Months) or as a result of getting Ted in some way??

Is there anything I could/should do to stop it ??

Any advice welcome:)

I may be wrong on this but I think when a female dog does this it's about a pecking order thing. She is trying to exert her dominance as head of the pack.. That's as far as my knowledge goes I don't know how you stop it. I'm sure someone can help...

Dominance thing Colin ... Honey did this to Pics in the early days, it did stop as soon as it started really .. Betty is just doing this to let Ted know she is the only bossy knickers in the house .. even if he wears superman pants ... she will always be top dog so to speak .. of course after pack leader Colin xxx

Lady had always been a real humpy girl....lol. I am sure when we get number 2 she will likely do it again, she has almost stoped doing it completely, and it was only ever on her toy. but it is just a dominance thing....she will stop I am sure.

Well...about it stopping with age--Bette is 10 years old and humps the cats daily. I don't think she'll be growing out of it, but maybe she'll get tired of doing it. The cats mostly don't seem to mind, not sure what THAT means.;)
OMG...don't tell me that :eek::eek: At least Ted can fight her off my poor arthritic cat will have no chance:D

:smile:Sorry, Colin! One of my cats is almost 19 years old, and Bette doesn't bother him, so maybe your poor cat will be spared. Come to think of it, the cats she humps are both girls. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Except maybe the cross-species thing. Hmmm. ;)

Good old Betty :D

Millie is a humper 'love cuddles' as Janet calls it :D Millie's favourite thing to hump is my leg, especially the right leg. She moves my left leg out the way :)

I'm not sure Millie does it for dominance, she seems to do it when she's just over excited or has excess energy :eek: If I say, No Leg Millie, then she doesn't insist. Even if she's in position and ready to go, I sometime say No Leg and she sits there holding on, looking forlorn :p
