A bit Unusual?
I love Della to death but she has a humping issue. Our old dog Princess was put down last year and Della has taken a liking to one of her old toys. I believe the humping is a dominance thing but it's embarrassing she does it in front of our guests and anytime she's bored she just pulls it out and goes to town. Then she wants us to throw it and she will chase it and hump it each time she retrieves it. I am not sure what to do. I have tried taking the toy away and hiding it and she watches me every time I hide it and whines until I give it back to her. I don't want to get rid of it because it is her favorite and used to be my Poodles favorite as well. I am just not sure if this is normal behavior and if I should be worried she is so sweet all the other times. I just do not like her obsession with this particular toy. I am open to any suggestions it is getting quite out of hand and she is now up to 3-5 times a day. Also we thought when she got fixed that it would help the problem it has not if anything it has made it worse. Any other stories/ advice are appreciated. I just do not know what to do at this point. Thanks again.
