I personally would just be concerned about stopping the behavior because it's unwanted without reading a whole lot more into it as it seems you are not certain of the root cause.

The correction can simply be some indication of "No stop it", and then the human actually interrupts and stops the behavior and directs the dog's attention elsewhere to something you feel is appropriate.

Be consistent, do it every single time the behavior occurs; and stop your daughter from laughing because that probably is feeding into the dog's behavior...she/you need to make it clear that the behavior is unwelcomed.

As much as I've been consistent with the correcting over the last week or so Luna has ceased humping my daughter, but continues to mount and hump my 2 year old.

Example, I'm cooking dinner, children doing HW, dogs playing as usual, out of the blue Luna begins to M&H. Granted I should be paying attention, but I'm cooking dinner & thus concentrating on not burning down the house, while simultaneously chiming in when the kids ask a question about HW help. Or I could be showering and my daughter will yell, " mom she's going it again".

I don't want to crate either one as they are well behaved with the exception of Luna M&H, so I'm going to continue my firmness and quick correction with the hope she either stops or outgrows it.

I would tether Luna to you and either not give her access to the 2 year old or give you the opportunity to stop the behavior just as she gets the gleam in her eye.

I know it's a pain in the butt to have to do 2 things at once; but consider it as "time limited". But I think you do need to put the time and energy in on the front end to work on stopping the behavior...or it could get worse.

I was going to suggest baby gates so the dogs couldn't get to the toddler when you aren't directly supervising...but I'm also not keen on the idea of more than 1 bully breed together without direct supervision either...

I agree, "to put the time and energy in on the front end to work on stopping the behavior" than to have to deal with the long-standing effects. And as far as the two bullies together, I consign that too as we have three and rotate them amongst each into their respected areas except the female whole has grown up sort of speak with the comfort of the both. But to fill you in Luna does not hump my older male ever as he's the alpha in the family. Nevertheless the tether is a great idea and I'm going to try it during Christmas meal prep, me wish me luck. Happy holidays, I'll keep you posted.
