Default Leg humping

At what age do dogs usually start the mounting behavior? My pup Hardy humped his first leg at 9 wks. This seems a bit young. The story goes I had him at our friends house to meet there senior Pitt bull cross. Great dog but unknown to me, a bit of a porn star. After a few minutes of play She mounted Hardy and gave him a little humping. We all found this quiet hilarious as there was 20+" hight difference between the 2 dogs. What followed was even funnier although we put an end to it immediately. Hardy looking quiet happy for just getting humped by a girl dog, immediately trots over to my friend Vicky and mounts her leg and gives her a quick hump. Even with tears of laughter we got him to stop and convinced him it was a bad idea. He has climbed my leg in mounting mode since this event but I turn and walk away and he seems to get the message. He did however Successfully hump the leg of a full grown chocolate lab, He is only 11 wks, I know this is a natural behavior. Should I correct this? He will be neutered this fall when he turns 6 months but I'm assuming this is a dominance maneuver and I can expect it to continue.

Comments or story's?

here is a picture of the day and all party's involved with the first leg hump.

We got Ozzy at 6-1/2 weeks & he started that almost immediately with his stuffie toys. I'm not sure if it is normal or not but I certainly was surprised to see it that young.

At that age,it's not really a sexual move, it's more of a dominant or Alpha thing, my Miki does it to my slipper all the time ,just to show who's boss and she's a 5lb little spayed girl
