So a dog of mine had puppies



Dresden and Heisenberg, both males.

They are adorable little bastards, Puggle/Dachshund mixes.

Heres the problem, they love to...

well ill just be blunt, Their favorite game is Dick biting, and I do not mean nimble, its recent behavior and ive had to intervene several times...

But sure enough they start playing with each other, next thing I know one of them is screaming cause one has the others crotch firmly in his mouth...

HOW DO I STOP THIS ITS HORRIFYING!

Help please...

It's a puppy thing and they will eventually outgrow it. Either ride it out or separate them each time one of them starts acting out- and be consistent. That's all I got.

Good luck!

Give one to me, so they can't?

Honestly, I've never had my males do that. Does one let go, when the other screams? Or do you have to intervene? And puppy teeth? Wicked bad news.

Put something down there they don't like the taste of... and of course something that will not harm the pups...

lemon/lime juice might work... or rub some orange peel on the area...

Im sure theres a lot of things you could use

its vicious looking, they both do it, they start playing and it progresses until one has his jaws around the others junk.

So far its just been constant intervention when it happens.

They seem to ignore eachothers yelps, but for the other dogs they seem to respect a yelp as back off, just not with each other.

Take two fingers and push the biter off,as soon as you have his attention give a stern NO,with a mad look on your face.You will have to repeat this several times with both of them. They're mom would just let them go at it till they fought it out.

How does the mama dog respond to the behavior? Usually she will break up the over aggressive behavior...at least that's what I've experienced in the past with my pup's.

Mama dog would always intervene and put a smack down on the aggressor.

I am no professional but I think a lot of pups do this trying to exert dominance over the other. Both of yours must be vying for the spot. This is also where they learn to "stop" when it hurts and is generally why most dogs don't bite too hard when they play with you. Unless blood is being drawn I would let them try to work it out on their own a few times. One of them will give in eventually and it will generally stop after that in my experience. It is uncomfortable to watch and they are too cute to see them in pain, but it is normal. Not all pups do it, but I have had more than 2 that did.

If they are interrupted each time then its never settled between them. They've found the dog version of the "spock hold".


Again... I am no professional. Just offering my 2 cents.

thanks for all the advice, I shall try to stop the horror that is crotch biting by taking a step back and letting nature work its course...

And lime juice if that fails...

Heres a vid of when they where first born.

Personally I'd separate them, gently but firmly, then try to distract them with toys.....The point is whatever you do, be calm and be consistent. That means everyone in the household must address the problem in the same manner, no shrugging it off from anyone.

Best of luck.....Be a good leader and your pack WILL follow.

My two - As pups:

Be careful of the lime juice. If it gets onto/into a sensitive area, or if there's scratches and bite marks, it might burn....

How old are you?

Any why are you are you allowing your dogs to breed if you don't know what your are doing?

That said... normal puppy behavior...

Oh stuff it, humorous thread for a mild problems I'm exaggerating the horror as a male and feel empathy so remove the stick.

I rescue dogs from the pound often, just never had new born pups as I tend to rescue elderly dogs who no one adopts. Not used to rambunctious puppy's, but I guess you know everything about dogs ...

My brother brought his un altered dogs (he believes we shouldn't castrate our pets and keeps good control over it) and well hanky lanky was found to have happened between a new rescue and his dog.
