My puppy lab trigger 2.5 months old has started doing something new. I got him some puppy biscuits as a mean to teach him stuff. Reward being the puppy biscuit.
Weel he starts humping the leg when he is very excited. I was under the impression that he won't be able to do it yet since he is so young. He is very small right now. What does this mean? How do I make him stop?
Any referneces where I could get information about dog behaviour.
Give him a little push to let him know you want him off your leg and sternly tell him "NO". Don't yell at him, but be firm about it, be serious. When he does get off, you can either pet him or give him a treat, it's up to you. I like positive reinforcement to be interactive, not all about food but that's just personal opinions.
I do a dominance thing with Riley, I'm not sure if your pup is too small, but maybe 2-3 times a week I lay him on his back and hold him down. I hold him down until he stops wiggling and fighting me, then I count to ten and if he doesn't move I let him up and reward him. I also play with his feet, rub his tummy, look in his mouth... This shows that I am in charge, I am the boss. I will let him up when I am ready.
This usually isn't done until the puppys are a little older though. But if he is already humping you, you may want to consider it.
Riley, the alpha roll that you describe is not an acceptable dog training method any more,and in some cases can cause more problems :P You would achieve the same goal by holding the dog in your arms or on his side, without the same level of stress or threat some dogs would feel by being forced to their back
When our Chihuahua Female came into her 1st heat cycle she had a 'Clifford the Big Red Dog' stuffed toy that she humped on constantly. Once she started doing that she will now hump on it even when she is not in heat. I also once had a female Beagle hump my leg. At first I didn't realize that is what she was doing...I thought she was just standing on my leg for attention. Once I figured it out, I would push her down with a firm NO. She eventually quit doing it. Funny, I still felt violated though :-)
