3.discovery and sexual self-stimulation:

dog sexuality continues to be taboo in our society it's still often thought that sex and animals only occurs for reproductive purposes which is an unhelpful perception dogs can also self-stimulate themselves sexually for both pleasure and relief it's a pure and spontaneous expression of the sexual behavior of their species something they do when they discover their body during sexual maturity if a dog humps another dog or even their guardian's leg they may be seeking sexual relief they may be growing up and wanting to explore sexual impulses an essential part of healthy physical and emotional development.
