Why do female dogs hump?

Hi there,

Love the show!

I'm Catherine from New York and I have a silly question.

Often you see dogs humping, but why then do I see female dogs humping? And especially female dogs that are fixed?

Thanks

Catherine

What do you think?

I think its to do with dominance / pecking order.
