Ivy is about 8 months and she recently started to frantically hump her dog pillow.... now... she brings it on the beg bites it and then 'makes love' to it... lol... my boyfriend and i got a kick out of this of course because its really odd.... I know that dogs hump other dogs because of a dominate thing... but why would she be humping her pillow? she spayed and shes a girl.... and its her pillow!!!??????
Hello, (my angel) Niki, she is now 15 Years Old! She is a spaniel and has ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS humped legs, pillows, especially pillows, LOL! Yes she really has, don't know why, she was not spayed until she was...11 years old, believe or not, but she ALWAYS did it before and after spaying! LOL....it is a Hoot - I know! Embarrassing at times too, even got her on tape humping a Dalmation stuffed animal/toy a little smaller than her. It is halarious and we had a Dalmation (Rali - R.I.P.) at the time, he didn't know what to think! She had just had her spaying surgery too !! Still had the stitches!! All I know is she is 15 yrs. old and she can hump anything (well ya know, within reason :-) as long as she is healthy, happy and I can have her with me for as long as possible, God willing! I am so fortunate! Blessings to you and your baby! Puppy Parents Rule ;-)
PS.........Yeah, to answer that question, I think it is a dominating act. She must want you ( or your boyfriend all to herself.) With me - it is me, b/c Niki was with me from 8 weeks old and was 1 year old when my husband came into the picture and she is STILL this way, only not as much as in past years.......
That's hilarious! I've heard of this before many times, mostly with boy dogs though. My friend has a japanese chin, and whenever I walk through that door, she comes running for my leg!! She also does this with the kitchen table legs...I'll never figure that out.
I have a spayed female that humps her blanket. It is funny and when she gets mad at my other dog, she has been known to lift her leg and act like she is going to pee on her. I have never seen a female do this.
When Riley was a pup I brought him to my cousins house to meet their pom, also a pup. She had never humped anything before until Riley came. He was humping his stuffed animal... she came and took it away from him, and humped it!! Ever since she always humps the stuffed animals lol. Who knows.
