    Default Humping post neutering!!

    I know this has been covered before and I have read most of the posts. We are taking in a male cav to foster (age 5 - ex puppy farm stud)tomorrow who has started humping everything in site since being neutered!! But I have a question - why would he start this now? how does one distract the humping doggie??? And how long can this behaviour be expected to last? Thanks T x

    I had a foster who was a major humper....we referred to him as "no no Rusty" After a few verbal corrections all I had to do was start to correct him and he would stop. I had him for 3 weeks and by the time he went to his new home he no longer had a problem.

    How along ago was he neutered? I believe it can take up to 6 weeks for his hormones to calm down.

    I have two intact males, they both used to hump Simba the lion (one of their largest toys). They've stopped doing that now and just hump each other!

    No really, its seems to be a morning thing, when they get up they do this stupid dance together and try and use their heads to push the other one down so they can "get in the position". We just say "No Oakley" or "No Merlin" (depending on who is the giddiest) in a firm voice and they both stop. Personally (not trying to go into too much detail) I think its just a morning male thing.........

    Any time of day here, for Joly, but Teddy mounts Monty when he knows it's my bedtime. Joly's grandfather was castrated, but carried on mounting his owner's bitches, whether in season or not.

    Females also mount (my Lily is a divil for throw pillows). It isn't necessarily a sexual behaviour nor tied to castration. Also it can take about two months post-neuter for males to lose the testosterone that drives some humping behaviour. It stops humping in about 60-70% of cases of it being a sexual thing but dogs hump for other reasons. Training is the main aspect of controlling the behaviour. There are some articles on mounting in the Library section.

    My sisters dog humps her cav so much on walks that he faints !
    Neutering him made no difference to his behaviour at all , he still humps & fights.
