oh k what is going on? my puppy (8months) just tried to hump my 5 year old sister and he's been trying to do this for about a week now. lol is this normal? and how can i stop it ?? :scratch:
Yeah, it's perfectly normal. If he hasn't been neutered yet, then it's REALLY normal... if he has been neutered (I can't remember if he has or hasn't), then you could try some behavior modification with him. Cooper humped his Mr. MooCow until he was neutered, then he humped Mr. MooCow for about a week afterwards. Then, it all stopped, thank goodness.
Ages 6-18 months are the juvenille stage for dogs where they start to assert dominance and, if they're not spayed or neutered, will begin sexual behaviors like humping. Most likely, he's trying to do a little of both with your sister. Have her assist in his training, teaching him to sit, etc... so he views her as a pack leader and not someone he is "above" in the pack.
Also, if he humps your sister, have her lay him down on the ground hold him there until he quits fighting to get up. Just be sure someone else is there with her so neither of them get accidently hurt. That is what a pack leader would do naturally, so that may help her keep him off her leg.
Good luck to all of you!
