Dogs Humping 101

[tps_title]Your dog is neutered. Why does he still hump?[/tps_title]

In purely biological terms, unneutered male dogs wish to mate bitches in the season – that is it. You will find, naturally, exceptions, for example, once they obtain a scent they enjoy on someone or something like that. However, the impulse is restricted to once they have that unmistakeable, innate mating message via scent.

 

Neutering helps you to decrease the quantity of testosterone (a sex hormone) inside a dog’s body, lessening the need to mate, and for that reason to hump. However, some the hormone remains within the dog’s bloodstream, meaning they will still wish to mate and, by extension, continuously exhibit mounting conduct.

 

Keep in mind, too, that humping is learned and practiced from puppyhood (before sexual maturity). It is a means for dogs to try out their physical abilities and social potential – more dominant people from the litter will assert themselves by mounting their brothers and sisters, therefore displaying leadership or dominance.
