Humping

If he is humping you or other people, then you need to stop it, walk away or whatever. If it's just his toys or bedding then I'd leave him to it. A male dog will hump something usually I think. Actually while we are on the subject, has anyone found that having a male neutered stopped the humping? My previous dog was neutered and was a humper to the day he died pretty much, but just wondering what other experiences people have had?

Distract.

Does he hump anything in particular eg cushion or a toy then I would remove that otherwise distract.

My puppy did this for a while. It usually happens when she was excited by playing.
I use to stop play stand up and turn my back to her until she calmed down. Then resume play. She soon got the message that humping meant play would stop.

Sorry!
What's the best way to deal with it? He's only a puppy and this is a new behaviour, but one I can see going on and on!!!
Is it better to ignore, to distract or to stop?
