When a young male pup humps it has nothing to do with sex. It a means of asserting dominance. The pup realizes that the golden is submissive and is just reinforcing his dominance.

I would pin the pup on the ground and hold him there until he submits (relaxes). This would reinforce my position as the Alpha and the pup would be less likely to try to assert his.

I guess that would depend on whether or not you or your friends want him doing that. He's just trying to show your friend that he's in charge. It's up to you to allow it or show him that you are in charge.

Dexter sometimes does it when we're playing and when he does I scold him and push him away. I also stop playing with him so he knows that behavior is unacceptable.
