I recently got 2 poodle/terrier mixed puppies, male and femle, and they are siblings. They are 11 weeks old and recently i noticed the male trying to mount his sister. I dont want to inbreed and i am getting them fixed, however, its not until Feb.
Is this normal? Can she get Pregos now? Do i have anything to worry about?...I dont know what to do.... how do i stop this?!!?!?..
Your puppies have not reached sexual maturity yet. Normally a female will come into heat between 6-8 months of age. Humping is not always sexual, but dominance. I would discourage the behavior because sometimes if you allow it to continue, they will still do this after being altered. And it can be embarrassing when you have house guests, not to mention just plain annoying.
He's your friend,your partner,your defender your dog.You are his life,his love,his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.You owe it to him to worthy of such devotion
Echoing Windys reply.....at this age it is puppy dominance, not sexual. Soon enough he will be in season in the next few months though. Plan to have at least one of them altered by then to avoid any mishaps. And as Windy mentioned...makes for lovely dinner conversation when Fifi and Spike are humping in front of the guests, lol.
