I am so glad you asked about dog humping the other day so I, too could read more about that lovely act. Funny, because my Gracie girl has for the first time just started mounting or humping my Puma pup who is in heat for the first time. She has never done that to any dog or anything at all, so I was a bit surprised.

Puma pup is very gentle natured so when Gracie tries it while they are also playing, Puma seems to just move her body away--no aggressive correction from Puma (thankfully!)

Puma is being patient with Gracie, so far, but I do watch them while thy are playing just to be sure.

When it happens, I gently call Gracie off her, since I don't think it is a good habit for her to learn, even if it is not completely uncommon behavior or particularly threatening between dogs. I would just worry if she ever were to try that with a strange dog, that other dog may take offense to it and act aggressively to her.

I guess that "in heat" hormones are pretty strong, huh?
