Willow is a 1 year old Jack Russell terrier who is humping my legs and also of my family members legs. Is this typical behavior, hormone related and what is the best way to deal with this problem? Please help!


Thank You,
Patricia

Humping isn't also "sexual". Sometimes it can be a dominance issue. Redirecting Willow to other behavior or tricks that she knows and then rewarding her for that. Giving too much attention to the other behavior may increase it.
