My 3 month old German Shepherd puppy is humping pillows

by Todd
(Georgia, USA)






I have a three month old male shepherd who will start chewing on a pillow then while he is still chewing it he will start humping it like crazy.

I read that dogs don't go through puberty until about 6 months or later and was wondering if this is normal behavior for a dog of his age and if I should discourage it by removing the pillow. Also, as a side note he is not neutered.

Humping not a way of showing love.
by: Anonymous

A puppy is not sexually mature yet. He humps on you to show his dominance. In the wild their ancestirs dont hump on all the pack members to show love. They have other ways to show their love for you. Stop your puppy from humping with an assertine "No".
