Unhappy aggressive after spay surgery

My Zoey is now 8 months old and was spayed at 6 months, she has become increasingly aggressive and nips me to get attention and now has started humping my arm.
Has anyone had this happen . I am wondering if it is a hormone thing . The person at training class thinks it is her age . I never had this with any other bread of dog that I have had.Some days she is her sweet self and others she is Cujo.....Help

There is a little adolescent phase that some puppies pass thru when a well behaved dog starts acting like a teenager, doing their own thing...it doesn’t last long, but does make you wonder what happened ..not sure if that is what you are seeing but sounds a bit like it. A puppy that seemed to want to please becomes this little demon...

I think you just have to wait it out, use the same training techniques you did initially...into expen or what ever for niping or other unacceptable behavior, stay calm in reacting etc.

Thanks Cassandra, I'm hoping it will be short lived. Today she was an angel.

Iím pretty sure there are better and more accurate ways to describe it, but to me, partly because I have a preteen and teenager, it feels very much the same. Like how sometimes a teenager suddenly forgets how to do basic things they did when theyíre were in first grade, like putting things away I think handling it the same way you handle it with teenagers is best - donít take it personally, reward appropriate behavior, keep teaching, and remember it doesnít last as long! There are good things that come along with this stage, too.
