Marou has recently hit "doggie puberty" and with it has come the phenomena of humping and leg lifting. The leg lifting hasn't really been much of a problem because he knows everything inside is his territory and there's no contest for it, so he only really marks outside.
The humping or "Wiggly Hugs" as some of Josie's friends have dubbed it, has been a little bit of a nuisance because he doesn't like to just stop. He does it constantly until either he gets tired or something else catches his attention.
We have partially succeeded in redirecting the behavior to another object (a throw pillow), but getting rid of it is going to require getting him neutered, which we are hoping to wait until right around his first birthday to do.
