Spayed female humping neutered female?

My 9 year old spayed female sometimes humps my 3 year old neutered male while he is play-biting with his spayed 10 month old play-mate. I think it is out of dominance, as she has lived with us longer that the other two.

Humping can be an invitation to play or a sign of stress. Watch each dog's body language to gain clues as to what is going on. Do all dogs look happy and relaxed? Or do they looked stressed or uncomfortable? If they look stressed or uncomfortable then separate them till they calm down a bit. Hope that helps!
