Just curious if my boy is the only one who doesnt lift his leg to pee. Not something im really looking to fix, he can go to the bathroom however he pleases really, just wondering if i have the only weird boy.

Sometimes on a walk he'll try to hit a bush and when he lifts his leg he almost hops on the other leg and looks like he has no clue what hes doing but anytime he's in my yard he doesnt even think about lifting his leg.

my boy does and doesn't, to my understanding its a learned behavior. I know a few dogs that don't ether.

basically i've noticed that if my boy has to go simply because he has to go then he kinda squats. if we are out for a walk or at a friends house or something, then he wants to stop and go more often liftin his leg and sayin "i was here"

Ive also heard its a learned behavior but the only thing Carter learns when another dog lifts its leg is to move because he almost gets hit. Its like he thinks their lifting their leg to give him a better view lol

Ecko doesn't. Never has and not likely ever will. Even when he marks near the fence he squates. While he has more opertunity to step in the puddle, he is less likely to pee directly on himself. So I am A OK with it. :)

Crush very rarely lifts his leg and my other 2 boys do both lol. crush likes to walk and pee, I guess he trying to prove males can do 2 things at once lol { he does a bad job of it though , usually pees on his foot } .

I'm a little shocked to see that so many dont do it. Growing up my parents had a male dog, and they currently have a male and they both lifted their leg like they knew they were supposed to.

Like i said its not something im looking to change, but good to see my boy isnt the only one.

Hachi lifts his leg if we are on a walk or if he is just having fun running around the yard. But when he really has to go he only lifts it halfway! AND like Crush, he walks and pees too! Lol, gets it all over himself...

I thought I was the only one! My boy doesn't lift his leg either. He's always sporting that sissy-squat, in our yard, or in public, doesn't matter. Last time he tried to lift his leg, he literally fell over. Then stood back up and squatted. Oh well. I love him. Even if he is a pansy pisser. :D

I agree, thats how my pup is, depends on where we are, but on walks its leg up and hitting high! lol

I don't think its learned because my boy wasn't around boy dogs and he lifts his leg. Just depends if there is something to piss on or just grass. He is a smart boy, who wants splash back!??! lol

HAHAHA poor crush! Apparently that's a FAIL on multi tasking lol

why it gotta be sissy squat?? lol Could just be the better way to pee when you have ham bones legs with crazy thick muscles hahaha

how the hell does he do that lol. He needs different grass to suck up the pee faster lol
