Picky HUMPING ???????

Same thing with my dog, Jamba. He only humps his bed/ pillow. Everytime we come home or wherever we bring it, that's all he does... and he's fixed.

Humping is hormone thing....

But at other times, male dogs (sometimes female too) hump to show dominance. Some people even argue that majority of humping is due to dominance issue, not hormon issue.

oops.. clicked submit by mistake...

Following that logic, dogs "selectively" hump, because they're picking on those who the think are weaker or submissive to them smile

Often there isn't any rhyme or reason, no matter what's been theorized, as to why dogs 'hump' and what their selected target is. For example Jordan MUST pursue Australian shepards when they're around and there isn't any background history as to why...it simply is. He could like your friend's scent, your friend's dog's scent on her clothes, the skin lotion she uses, etc. It really isn't that serious of a matter, but I think you know that. smile
