Hi there I am hoping someone can help me out here. I just bought a beagle from the shelter last week, her name is haley, and she is 2 yrs old. She is a wonderful dog. We love her to pieces. I took her to the vet 2 days ago, and confirmed that she HAS already been spayed. Here is my concern.....i have a 3 yr old daughter, and I noticed tonight that Haley was trying to "bow up" on her. Haley hasn't tried doing it to me, she only follows my daughter around and tries to "hump" her. If my daughter sits down, haley will get behind her, if my daughter is standing there, haley will go for her leg, and so on......here are my questions... I thought dogs stopped this after being "fixed"? why do they do this? how do you stop them from continuing to do this? How long does it last? I mean, is it like they are in heat and they go thru a week of this then stop, or is this something they always do? Thank you in advance for any pointers and advice, I do appreciate it.
