Oh a squatter,no doubt.

One quirk is that she pees on ONE side of the yard and craps on the other, LOL I find this funny because this certain, odd..obsessive compulsive quirk of hers made housebreaking her more challenging than it should've been..lol, IF she would've just TOLD me.

(this applies to pee pads too, she has to have 2 separate ones for each deed, its the weirdest thing and I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes)

Lily squats but if you watch you can see her lifting her left leg at the same time-it looks like she is levitating! The first time my sister saw it she thought she was lifting both of her back legs, Cirque de Soleil style.

I actually try to alternate legs - so as not to become more muscular on one side.

Augie is still not a leg lifter - he stretches out. Hope he keeps it that way. He will be two in October.

Panda lifts to the right. Rarely does she completely squat....Also, she won't poo in the yard, she goes to the pinestraw and behind a bush - makes it a challenge for me to watch and make sure she goes.....

Yeah Linda, it's funny how some females lift and some males don't. I did read where they think it has something to do with when they are fixed sometimes.

Do you know if an undescended testicle would have any bearing on testosterone production possibly being lower and not lifting the leg in the male. He wasn't 'fixed' until 17 months of age. I am certainly not complaining about his not lifting his leg on my plants and such, but I don't know as I have known any other male dogs who do not lift their legs. Just curious.

Cicero does it all. If he has 'really' got to pee he will run out in the grass and squat. Lots of times he will lift his left leg and pee on several things. My vet says he is really marking by spreading it around and that marking is more of a leaned behavior. Oh yes, he saw the big Lab in the neighbors yard lifting. Now when he has to poop it takes him forever to find the right spot. He likes to be at the edge of the yard, behind a bush, where you can not see or know what he is doing. It takes a lot of sniffing around to find the right spot for the day. A real sneaky guy. I don't care where or how he goes potty as long as it's outside.

Snickers is a full time Squatter. Narry a leg lifted anywhere. She's very entertaining as she rambles about the yard looking for the perfect place to squat and then a couple of minutes later going to the opposite side of the yard to go number 2.

The next day the rules for where to pee and poop seem to go out the door completely -- she'll pee where she pooped and poop where she peed... go figure...


Cheers!

Jim & Lynda & Snickers and soon Snoopy too.
