Why does a spayed female dog hump?


Answer by  vsg (45)

Not all dogs will demonstrate this behavior, but a spayed female dog may still try to mount other dogs. This is not necessarily a sexual behavior but more a dominance behavior in the dog world. He/she is trying to prove or establish himself as the alpha dog over the other one.

Humping in dogs isn't usually a sexual behavior, it's a dominance one. Male dogs are generally dominant over females and the others males in a pack. Your female thinks she's in charge and is letting you know in the most direct way the animal kingdom knows.

Humping is not always a sexual act, if a dog is spayed and still doing it, it is to assert dominance over other people or animals. It is normal in a dog's mind, but in the human world, it means she does not view you as the pack leader.


Answer by  keiki (1376)

With dogs, humping isn't just a sexual behavior, it's also a dominance behavior. It is very common for spayed females to hump other dogs when they are in an excited state of mind and/or are feeling dominant. Sometimes dogs just get worked up and show their dominance over another dog by humping it.
