Default Ummmm....is this normal?

Rosie-Jew has been with us just over a month now and she has taken over the house and we love it.......quick question.....she's just started humping our legs, is this normal? She is due to be spayed on April 8th, does this mean she's coming in to season?

Rosie is 6 years old and came to us after living on a farm and being bred from. Hoping she's not coming in to season.....want her spayed as soon as possible as she's had too many pups already!!

Saying that, she's snoring her head off next to me.......she's not so worried!!!!!

She is a love. .
Don't think it's her coming into season. All my spayed girls sometimes hump. To me it's completely normal in the context that they do it. Margot and Lula on occasion like to give their humans a quick hump when they are excited - playing, really happy and Iz likes to hump Margot when she's playing and excited. Absolutely fine with Margs. To us it's absolutely ok in this context - always in the privacy of their own home and the human humpers never do it to anyone else. I think it's about what you find acceptable. Otherwise it's quite easy to correct - a no and redirect to a sit or down and treat.

I'm totally happy with her doing it (privacy of her own home and all). May have been slightly put out she did it to my partner first!!!

Just didn't want it to affect her being spayed......pheeww!!!

Thanks xx

I have sisters and Page is ALWAYS humping her sister - her head - her side - her back end - really doesn't matter - she'll walk the full length of the family room humping her.

Humping is Normal

The Down & Dirty on Humping: Sex, Status, and Beyond

Famous dog Trainer attacked for using science and nature to train her dog!


It can however be a sign in some dogs of the beginning of the heat cycle.
