hiiiii your lab may be going thourgh stress so contact your vet. or you may be not taking the as you were doing before dogs ahv a great jealous type nature. once my dog did't eat 4 one b'coz i use to go 4 a walk every morng and one day i was unable to take that she didn't eat anything. so love your dog a lot spend time with him. I m not a expirenced but i think my sugesstion can help you a litlle. take care

well shreyank this is kind of embarrassing I know...
did you train your dog for all the basic commands??

Humping is a very common problem in most of the growing dogs. now you also need to understand that you dog has entered in his teen. this is a common behavioral problem with all dogs

I believe your dog understands "No".
when your dog starts humping your or anyone's leg just take your three finger your thumb index and middle finger and touch his neck as quick as a camera clicks pull back your leg and say "No"... make him understand by your tone that this is a wrong thing to do and you are not happy about it...

Hope this will work for you and exercise your lab well he need more time with exercise else more behavioral problem will start... every dog understand what we say but they dont follow it because they think they are smarter and stronger than you and wont follow you...

always praise your dog we he behaves good!!!!

Lemme know about the progress.

some time they do for desire and sometime its is also a sign of dominance... its kind of embarrassing so dont let him hump anything... get him proper exercise that will also help as he will be tired and keep him involved in some work... as he dont obey command that means he is ignoring you and he doesn't see you as a dominant leader so keep your voice firm and serious and do the correction and mark that bad habit thats all you need...
its a common problem and nothing serious just correct his behavior as soon he do it...
