    Are you saying you have a bitch in season and an un-neutered dog in the same house?

    Your male pup is now at sexual maturity and knows there is an in season female in the same house.

    His behaviour is caused by his overwhelming instinct to mate her.

    There really is nothing you can do, other than to get your bitch spayed three months from now to prevent this happening again.

    Or, for now, could anyone take care of your dog until your bitch's season is over?

    Her season will last 3/4 weeks.

    You need to be very vigilant now as, at ten months old, your pup is perfectly able to mate and father pups.

    His behaviour is typical I'm afraid and, unless you have someone who can take care of him for a few weeks, he's likely to continue.

    I really think you need to keep them well apart, 'keeping an eye' isn't enough. They can mate very quickly and once tied the damage is done, it's very difficult if not impossible to break a tie without injury to dog or bitch - or both.
    In her receptive stage your girl will be as keen to mate as he is . So please, keep them completely separate , if possible get someone else to look after your pup or think about kennels for a couple of weeks.

    You absolutely must separate them.

    Dogs can mate in a matter of seconds and there would be nothing you could do about it.

    If you allow them to be together, they WILL mate.

    Thanks for the update.
