This can be pretty normal.
Is your dog neutered?
If not get him neutered.

What you are seeing is not an erection - it is usually a sign of irritation or infection of the penis inside the sheath. He should go to the vet to be checked and he should be neutered if this happens regularly or his prostate can become enlarged and infected.

FYI - dogs only get 'erections' when they smell a female in heat. It has nothing to do with anything else.

Most people think that a little tiny pink tip sticking out is an erection.
I assumed that was what this guy was referring to...but maybe not!
Thanks Sara for replying ...

Well Dirk...what's happened since your last post?
