I stop this behaviour! There's no need to allow this to go on, especially if (as isn't the case here) the humper is bigger and heavier than the humpee It's going to mean more if she tells him to knock it off however and this is less likely to happen if she's been spayed. I'd suggest that he's doing this because he's not been around a female before - excitement and inappropriate expression/behaviour. Why on earth would anybody want to let their male get into this state (to the person who suggests this is fine). At the worst, the dog could actually blow up outside the bitch, and have difficult in getting back into his sheath. Painful! And further, if left, getting to this level could well lead to a full-on fight. Common sense suggests, surely, that owners stop this activity which isn't needed!!

humping does not involve penetration

Have I suggested that it does, in this case? And actually a dog can, and often does, 'blow up' without penetration. Which in some cases, can be painful for the male. And as for your second comment -

The dogs have no contact at all anymore. We tried this about 3 times then gave up. I don't know why Maddie doesn't correct the behavior. Her brother once tried and she instantly put him down on his back, snarling and pinning him by his throat. She was 50 pounds, he was about 75. Shocked everyone but Maddie, lol! She kept him there long enough to prove her point, then left him alone. He's never tried to hump her again. I wish she would do that with the neighbors dog. It seems odd to me that she can completely ignore him, as if he isn't there when he's frantically humping her.

that happens with or without humping.

because the context of the humping was very different that is the problem when we human intervene in dog v dog communication we miss much of what is Actually being said and conveyed and therefor draw the wrong conclusions.

The acutal behavior is normal however it is a displacement behavior to alieveate stress, OCD etc then there is a problem not with the behavior but the underlying cause.

Every body has a different response to humping, which I think relects more on the owner than the dog. Sure it's natural, whether out of excitement, boredom, dominance or many other things but it's a behaviour I don't want & if I find either of them doing it I call them off & yes they stop.
