Experience my friend, experience. Humping was not a normal part of 'play' with my bitches especially. You could see the level was getting up there with those two sibling bitches. Not to say that a fight WOULD break out, just that it MIGHT.

Again with the Common Sense.

Leila is actually amazing with her pups, they're almost 10 months old and she still loves to play with them - I think she considers them to be do-it-yourself playmates!

the world might end on dec 22, 2012 not saying it will but it Might

Does not surprise me that humping was not part of your bitches play because you would not let it be. Also if you do not let puppies interact and learn from adult dogs the never aquire the social skill to end inappropriate behavior without resulting in a fight. if you alway want to have to intervene and guide every social interaction between your dogs that is your right but it is not the norm nor does it have to be to prevent injury or other mishaps.

Puppy Play: Why Puppies Play

Puppy license and adult behavior–STOP SEPARATING PLAY.

Puppy Socialization and Bite Inhibition
Young dogs learn what is acceptable and what is not from their mothers and siblings, and later, from other members of their community. Generally, the learning of social skills and how to read the body language of others is through trial- and-error- most importantly through play while young.
As they develop, they will test their social boundaries with other, strange dogs, to find out just how much they are able to get away with. Young puppies can get away with a fair bit. However a five-month-old pup who is a bit too cheeky with a dominant adult male in the park (attempting a mounting, for example) will learn in no short order that he is out of line. Rarely are there any injuries (though the pup might shriek as if the sky is falling in on him), and owners are best to let this natural process unfold, to treat it as a "that's what you get!" rather than a calamity. The pup has just learned something important about how to interact socially as an adult with other dogs. If his early socialization was largely positive, this kind of event will be assimilated as a lesson rather than a trauma. He will probably keep his distance from the gruff one for a while, and will then learn that if he does so, nothing bad happens.
Young Dogs Can Learn From Older Well-Behaved Dogs
