It could be playful behavior. Or it could also be stress or a hint at medical issues.

Our rescue suddenly did that first to my sister then immediately to me, then to my mom when she came back for another visit! Never anyone else. She was really excited, and we stopped her and she hasn't done it again. I had my mom be more dominant because she was staying with us and my dog is bigger

Your dog may be demonstrating playfulness, desire, boredom/stress relief, dominance, or behavioral issues.

I think is just playful behavior or if she's not fixed, she could have a heat coming!
