Smile up with the leg

Hi Chilled,

dont worry, it will come. My friends dog took absolutely ages (7-8 months) before he could lift his leg for a wee. Some are earlier some even later. But apart from that, I have a female Rigdgeback and she can wee with her leg lifted even higher then her doggie male friend Chui.

If you neuter your dog, which I hope you will do, he might never do it at all.

Chip ( neutered ) mostly squats but will lift his leg to marks another dog's pee....my females did too. It's fun to watch 3 or 4 mark as each has to go higher than the last.

OC squats when he's just gotta go but he does mark too, although he didn't start doing it until he was around 1year old

My husband breed and raised boxers and the boys that stayed and grew up w/ the girls never lifted their legs (un altered males), Guess they learned from the girls to squat and continued to do it b/c everyone else did. I was suprised that they weren't altered and still squated.... ???? Has anyone else had this where males were raised w/ females and not altered and still squated?

I don't think I've ever seen my male GSD lift his leg when peeing in all the 5 years I've had him.

I think I've seen my male Aussie lift his leg once and that was after he saw another dog do it right in front of him. Otherwise he just squats...and he's only been neutered for about 2 months (since ARPH took him in).

My dog was sterilized about a year ago. He never squats. He just stands there and spreds his legs apart. He sometimes lifts his leg when another dog was there before him. I guess all dogs are different.
