    Im almost embarrassd to post this but im hopping a dog trainer on here can help. I adopted a 3 yr old spayed puggle about 2 weeks ago. She is the sweetest dog ever she loves giving kisses and trying to be in my lap all the time. But now she has started humping me a dominice behavior i don't think so because when she starts smelling my underarms and crouch and trying to lick me in those places i knock her of me and say no but she backs on me try to hump me and still trying to get to areas on me she does no need to be. so in the kitchen she goes tell she mellow out agian Im begining to wounder if she was used as a sex dog or something at her fomal home. Know when my 5 yr od dd plays with her the only thing Jill wants to do is hump her and go after her no no areas. This is soooo embarrassing to post this but i need help is this a domonic issue or something else. Im already trying to work on her habit of bolting out of the house and run like no tomorrow down the street.

    Just continue training her. Each time she does something like that, stop it, immediately shut down physically and mentally towards her, even putting her outside each time she does that can help deter the behavior. She is also experiencing a lack of hormones from being spayed. Hopefully it will stop...and SOON!

    try spraying her with a water bottle. I have broken just about all dog misbehaviors by spraying them in the face. They hate it and soon will decide not to do the behavior that is getting them a gentle face full of water.

    Females will often hump as a sign of dominance. In their world it is a just a natural thing, even though humans find it an embarrassing behavior. Just keep up with her training and make sure she knows YOU are boss and the behavior should subside.

    Pugs (i know she is a mix) l ove to lick. I have not met one that doesnt try to cover you with kisses. The humping is a dominance behavior so keep trying to break her of it. The licking the nonos could be that she likes the salty taste?
    My pup I don't plan on neutering because I need some of the male behavior to help keep the coyotes away (anyone wants to know pm me and i will explain) does a really embarrasing thing in front of us. My DD who is 6 has asked what he is doing and we explain it as "he is licking himself to get clean. Thats how doggies bath". He wont stop licking and chewing himself till he is done. Then he lays and pants awhile. I can't wait till he is out of his teenage phase!!!! He also tries to attempt it in front of company everytime he starts we stop him.

    First, don't be embarrassed. Dogs just do what dogs do. They don't have any ulterior motives, and the behavior is almost certainly not sexual in nature.

    The keys to stopping ALL undesireable behaviors are:

    1) interrupt the behavior

    You can do this by standing up, moving away, or keeping a short tab on the collar to help you stop the behavior. Pair the interruption with a verbal cue, such as AH AH, said in a firm but not loud tone of voice.

    2) redirect

    Show the dog a toy, a treat, or anything they really like. Do a couple quick obedience moves, such as sit, or look at my eyes, or play tug or fetch.

    Here is how to teach the puppy to look at your eyes/face for a reward

    Hello thanks everyone for the help. Ive almost got her trained that behavior on me is a no no but my dd is like but mom she is playing lol. She knocked my 2 old over yesterday and started humping her. Just 1 ah ah worked. I knew getting a shelter dog i would need some work but some of her habits are alittle disturbing. Thanks Redyre i think ill see i can use that also in her training to keeping her from bolting out the door

    put a leash on her and make her sit and stay when you open the door. Then close the door and don't go out. Do that several times. Once she is good on that, go out the door just a couple feet. Sit, stay, (repeat a nursery rhyme in your head or something to totally clear your own head from generating unconcious body cues, then go back inside, sit stay inside, close the door. Open the door and do nothing, close the door. Reward her for quiet, relaxed behavior.

    I would use a long line and an assistant, and I would not prevent her going out the door.

    would call her back each time and reward her inside the door. I would then start shaping for a sit inside the door, and lure her into a sit if necessary. Each time she went out the front door, I would turn my back to her and fold my arms until she came back to ask for interaction.

    Anytime she came back to give me eye contact the game would be on, and I would be all smiles and treats.

    Nothing out there is better than I am, and I would prove this repeatedly to my dog, that going out the door without me means nothing.


    This generally works pretty quickly, but use the long line for a while until you are sure. You can also set up an expen outside your door as an additional precaution, or you can work this from your backdoor first.

    Ive heard this is common among mixed breed dogs, particularrly pug in the mix. I would just realls SCREAM loud and flail, and freak her out when she goes to do it. Scare her brains out when she goes to do it enough times and she should get the picture.
