Default My male dog has gone nuts

My male dog has been acting really odd for a couple of days. I think is responding to a neighborhood female in heat. I don't know if there is one in heat, just guessing. He has not been eating normally, trying to hump our female who is spayed (she is having no part of it), not sleeping through the night and by my side constantly. The last is not normal, he is normally a Momma's boy. Anybody out there ever experience a non neutered male and their reaction to a heat cycle? How long does the behavior usually last? If this does not go away soon my wife is getting annoyed and wants to clip his

HE'S HORNEY....

Me unless he is a show winning dog with great lines would cut them nuts off. Much higher risk of cancer and intact males don't live as long as neutered males. That is just me though I am very against back yard breeding as they are not doing anything to better the breed.

We JUST went through this. We have a male and a female. Plans are to breed them in a couple of years, but right now she is too young and just went into heat for the first time.

The boy was incorrigible.. LOL

It lasted about 2 or so weeks. He was constantly trying to hump her, and she was at first having no part of it, then she was more submissive and we had to keep them seperate for about a week.

Acting funny, not eating, wanting to constantly be up in your lap, or be left completely alone. Just doggie hormones running amock in his poor system.

After about two or three days of barely eating, he would suddenly become a bottomless pit, then go back to not eating again. I actually went and got him a small steak at one point, cooked it up rare and gave him the whole thing to get him to eat something with some protein in it.

He slept a lot, and when he wasn't sleeping, he was a handful.

They make this stuff that I got for him with 'Calm' or 'Calming' in the name. I can't remember it, but I will find it tonight and post it. Anyways, a couple of these chewable tablets with some peanut butter and he was a lot more mellow and not as apt to hump anything he could.

Basically you are going to have to wait it out bro....

Agreed, there are plenty of dogs out there for anybody wanting a regular, non-show type dog.

Thanks guys. That is pretty much what I was thinking. My current avatar is a pic of the young man. He is actually a beautiful Boxer and I want to breed him with another AKC female. We have been told when we first got him that his markings and presence are very desirable in the breed. Worst case, if Momma can't handle it, he will have to say goodbye to the Bys.

So if his dog locks himself into his room and starts playing Metallica real loud no worries?

It's just a phase...a phase that I still haven't grown out of!
