Puppy humping

My German Shepherd puppy is 8 weeks old tomorrow. He has humped my leg twice now when I take him outside for exercise. He just started this behaviour. Is this normal for such a young pup?

Yes its normal. Just redirect him and play with him. If he humps something else, redirect and play with him.

It is so embarrassing when your puppy begins madly humping people's legs, you, other animals in your home, and just about anything else that incites your puppy into humping.

Yep it's normal...with both females and males equally. It isn't a sex hormone thing. It's usually a dominance thing.

Either way it's normal, and it will pass.

Hahahaha yeah my vet said that they can start that early. I asked her because my 9 week old (now 10 weeks) was getting little puppy erections. She told me to expect lots and lots of humping.

Embarrassing but whatchya gonna do? I really dont want to neuter him till he's a little older. lol Good luck!

Yes normal..but say NO and redirect with something else as it can become and annoying habit. It is a dominance thing and try to control it now.

Puppy humping

Glad to hear my little guy isn't alone. I was getting concerned, he's only 14 weeks old and the last couple of days he's been trying to jump on my 8 month old girl. I want to wait until he's older any matured before we take him in.
