Sonia: Is it normal for my male dog to always want to have sex with my female dog, is this normal behavior?
And what can I do to keep him off her, he will be spayed soon. I guess what I really want to know is if this is normal behavior in dogs or is there anything we can do. Thanks for your time.
Thanks for the feedback!

Males are neutered…
If the dog is not neutered and the female is in heat the male will constantly try to mate with her. This is a normal dog mating behavior.
The dog needs to be neutered.
Answer by Real Deal CowGirl
yes, especially if she is in heat, you need to get her spayed as well if she isn't already.
Answer by M W
You need to have him neutered and her spayed immediately. If you can't afford it, call your local animal shelter and ask them if there are any programs for low-income pet owners. Do it now and you won't have unwanted puppies later. Also, you will have happier animals that will live a longer and healthier life. SPAY AND NEUTER, PLEASE.

Males, if not neutered when young, will hump anything that moves. It doesn't have to be female, and it doesn't have to be in heat. You have obviously waited too long. Get him fixed.
Answer by Bruce
yes, it is normal. dogs are like human
Answer by Pen
You can try some firm "No" combined with a spray bottle or a whack on a hard object right beside him with a fly swatter, and then time out, in a separate area. Repeated reinforcement that this is unacceptable behavior will do it, but she's new in your household too, so there's that aspect to deal with. Even if you neuter him tomorrow, it won't make a drastic change at this point. If you have a place to separate them, for now, it would be quite handy. Things will definitely settle down, it will just take some time.

Yes, neuter your dog! The sooner the better. He will be a much better pet for you two and the much happier boy himself. If you're not into breeding dogs, and that should be left to the professionals that know what they are doing, neuter. Guys seem to think that neutering somehow turns male dogs into big puddles of mush. This just is not true. He will calm down in a couple of months (take time to work the testosterone out) and he'll stop the mounting. Trust me! You don't want a stud dog in your house.
