SoCal Rebell I'll give him a big scary NO from now on and if he persists I'll grab him by the scruff and give him a NO, thanks gang.

kakarot My pup's 15 weeks and I noticed him trying to hump things at 9 weeks.. I give him a big scary no and he usually stops.. and I try to keep blankets, stuffed animals, and his bed out of his reach. I've tried the scruff grabbing once and he YELPED like I was super hurting him, but I was barely grabbing. Is he just being a lil weenie so I don't scruff him or is he really being hurt? For future reference just in case a no doesn't work.

Shade I would firmly give a negative marker, whether it's verbal or a scruff like Jenn suggests and then redirect to something appropriate. He'll learn the behaviour is discouraged

SunCzarina Remove him by the scruff of his neck and say NO. You don't need to be harsh or shake him, just remove him, it's what his mother did when he did that to his littermates.
