|At the dog park, Sanka wouldn't always just jump to the humping. Sometimes he was quite good. Most of the time, he'd end up humping though. Is Baby like that too?
When Sanka would start pestering 1 dog, I'd just go over, grab him, and go sit on the bench with him. Give him like a breather and let the other dog have some fresh air. Some dogs turned it into play and were fine with it. Some owners were fine with it to. So I could let him go. Other times, he was just too annoying. And other times, the owners weren't too happy. So, he didn't get to run around as much since I had to hold onto him. But that's just the way it goes some times.
I think humping is a very hard behavior to get under control in a dog park setting. I can say "ah-ah" to Sanka at home when he starts up and get him to stop immediately, but when at the dog park, no way. The urge to hump plus all the excitement and commotion, that's just asking a lot.
I personally found corrections worked best for Sanka in the home setting. Sanka's humping isn't from playing or excitement from playing. He can just go right up, take a sniff and start to hump. So, it was very hard to get him out of that state of mind I guess I'd call it.
