JeanKBBMMMAAN I would tether if needed. That way he responds. Dr. Yin has some really great methods for a week of puppy training on her website and youtube. She does a tethering and a sit for things. Other than that, a squeaky toy is great and of course, food. The best time to redirect is before the behavior starts - so look for clues that he is going to launch.

And your girl should get some special time and rewarded for putting up with Mr. Piggypants.

lkcheertex Good point. Any suggestions on the redirect as he is not so into being redirected at this age. Should I just remove him to his crate if he won't listen?

JeanKBBMMMAAN I always redirect because it's a rude thing for them to do, and if they can do it at home, they think they can do it to anyone, and might get a face full of teeth if they do it to the wrong dog. She is probably giving him license for now, but eventually may retaliate - so better to learn it now, nicely from you. I always just call them away, toss a toy, whatever.

Puppy trying to mount female

My 13 week old puppy who is neutered (no debate on that timing please, he was a rescue and I didn't have a say) is now trying to mount my 50 lb female. I'm assuming it's a play for power. If she allows, should I stay out of it?
