My guess is that initially she was irritated down there after the spay, and the humping was like scratching an itch. Now, it might just be a habit. Although I would have her checked for a UTI just in case.
Lupi occasionally humps my leg when she's bored and trying to get me to play. Like all her other unwanted behaviors, this only happens when she's missed out on walks for a few days. I don't know about Vienna, but Lupi HATES the cold as well as rain or snow falling on her. So in cold weather I take her to classes to give her something to do.

She only does this to me and not my husband she will do it Till shes out of breath and then do it over and over till she eventually goes to sleep. She wont allow Any dogs to do it to her and she doesnt do it to them just my arm. For. While she would stop if i told her wrong and leave it when She would start To do it but now shes doing it again.
