Hi, My male beagle has been pressing his backside against my legs and kind of humping. This is a new behavior and I don't get it? Can someone tell me whats going on!
Thanks

Hi there. Penny humped up until she was spayed. The vet says its a hormonal thing or dominance. We just kept saying No very firmly and turned our backs and walked away - it seemed to work.

Its a dominance thing. He is trying to see who is the leader. Dogs need to have a Pack Leader, if they don't know who it is, they will try to be it.

Thanks! I thought it might be that. We have a pound puppy too and she is NOT dominant. How do I let him know that that behavior is not cool?

spray bottle to stop it. Or spank him when he is doing it. Not a hard spank, but a attention getting spank so to speak. It lets him know you disapprove of it.

If you watch a pack of wolves and see how they act toward each other you will get ideas on how to let them know what is approved and what isn't.
