Re: 8 week old puppy humping


Nothing to do with sex
Nothing to do with dominance

Just a symptom of over excitement.

distract
Remove person or object

puppies of both sexes do it and they do it in the nest.

Fergus use to hump the side of Floras head when they were really small, bless her she just use to stand there and look sad , he seems to have outgrown it now though!

My pup Taz was the same, he has calmed down now he is older (5 months) but still humps his cat igloo given half a chance, I just ignore the behaviour.

Re: 8 week old puppy humping


Thanks. I'll pass that on. I'm know they are keen to stop it because although he is small now, he's going to be a reasonable sized dog and they don't want him knocking the small children over

My GSP was humping when I brought him home at 12 weeks, it happened every time he got excited. I just distracted him and got him to stop, now at 17 weeks there is no humping at all

Re: 8 week old puppy humping


Mine's a girl and she's always done it. But only to her stuffed toys. Her favourite is the stuffed draught stopper.

We've noticed she does it more if told she cannot do something else!

I did read that you should not let them hump stuffed toys as this is a sign of aggression and dominance.

But to be honest, we find it so funny and she is not in the least aggressive or dominant.

Re: 8 week old puppy humping


Action plan----have frozen peas near by in case it gets stuck out----saves an op at the vets!!!

Speaking from experience here you understand.

Not mine but a friends pup.
