Why Does My Dog Hump?

The Bark’s advice columnist Karen B. London answers readers’ questions about canine behavior. Got a question? Email askbark@thebark.com

My dog Sam does all kinds of crazy things around other dogs, including humping them during play. I don’t know if that’s necessarily a bad thing, but it makes me nervous, and I wish I had a way to tell if he’s just playing. If dog humping really is a canine social faux pas, what can I do? Please help—I don’t want my dog (or me!) to become a dog-park pariah.
