Never had this with Ellie our first Golden...

We know that Joy's personality can be assertive/pushy....but I didnt know females could Hump a leg like the boys....I guess its a domination attempt? Or a by product of her first season setting in...? Any thoughts?

You are right not all humping is sexual. It can be her dominating or a form of play. How old is she now?

Okay, here is something everyone can laugh at about me. When I was first out of college I had two girl goldens. When one started humping the other I called the vet to ask if I had gay dogs!Wow, I almost don't want to send that and admit it now.

Joy was eight months on Thanksgiving....She does this usually when I am sitting at my desk. Seems to be trying to get attention. Should I be discouraging her.

Humping is very common in adolescents both males and females. You should discourage it but you don't need to make a big deal about it.

Yup, many a female pup loves humping. Heck, there's a member on here whose golden girl humps pillows daily, so we made her a pillow case with all her favorite boy dogs' pictures on it:)

Haha...that is hillarious!

When I was a kid we had a female jack-russel terrior/daschaund mix who would always hump our male cats. Poor poor kitties...lol

Now, THAT is funny!!!!!
My female lab used to hump my female golden whenever they were playing too roughly. For her it was just excitement....nothing sexual.

8 month Max and nearly 7 month Darby were playing and my friends little girl came in and said, "Ahh, mommy, the puppies are hugging!!" I knew from a prior conversation with mom that is what she told her little girl the humping was - hugging. Ha. So my friend and I look at each other and think...oh crap! I think so ask, who was doing the hugging? She said Darby. Whew!! So girls do hug as well....
