Anyones Female Hav's mark?

I was just curious to see if anybody else has a female Hav that marks or lifts their leg to pee! Bella is spayed, but she marks far worse than my boys and lifts her leg. Thank goodness they all leave the marking for the great outdoors!

I am not sure what the exact definition of "marking" is but Lily will wait for Lexi or Logan to pee first, then she runs over to where they went, and pees on top of it. I assume that is a kind of marking, but she does not lift her leg.

My Maltese, Lexi always does the same..... she waits until my bichon pees and then pees on the same spot and does the same with Valentino. No leg lifting either! Is that marking?

I have seen Dreamer lift her leg & mark where another dog has been. I could not believe my eyes. I am glad she is not the only one out there.

On our walks Bella will lift her leg and actually mark at about 20 times! Sometimes all she has is a drop left, but she leaves her scent. It's kinda funny, but good to know she's not the only one!

Hey everyone,
marking just means peeing at specific spots to mark territory, that shows the dog's dominance. I actually read about that in The Havanese, quote: 'It's a very basic canine behavior, and has more to do with establishing dominance than with testosterone, as dominant Havanese bitches will also sometimes mark territory-some will actually lift leg!'
So, no worries, all is well with your doggie, she's just a dominant bitch!
Maryam.

Pirelli will hike her leg. When I got her she was 2 yrs old and not fixed. She also came from a kennel with about 5 other dogs, all female. I just figured she did that because of where she came from. She is fixed now and still hikes..o well.

My maltese Belle (maybe it is the name) is also a marker and I have seen her do a leg lift well it is kind of a sideways one. I can't imagine she does more than a drop but when we are out with others she goes behind every dog and does this!

Oh yes - meet Hillary. Hillary waits until one of the other bitches has urinated, then she quickly runs over, sniffs and positions herself just perfectly and lifts her back right leg FORWARD. It's pretty funny. She doesn't lift it outward like a male, but forward which puts her in a squat position. She has to mark, even if she just urinated somewhere else.
