leg lifting

Does your male dog lift his leg to go pee? Gryff has started lifting his leg, but not against a tree or anything else. He just stands there on three legs to pee.

i was going to ask the same question. django is almost 5 and lifts his leg when he pees when he pees on a tree, and when it's on a flat surface, he leans in. and he's been neutered

Interesting. Stella is obviously female so I don't know anything about it. However, I saw the most amazing thing at the dog park last night. A little Chihuahua cross male stood on his front paws to pee, doing a handstand!! Both of his back legs were in the air. It was the funniest thing I've seen in awhile. The owner says he does it all the time. And I thought he was just showing off for Stella

Riley lifts.... and rather loves to do so. He throws his little leg so high, it looks like he's gonna fall right over!

It's strange though...I have my patio fenced off with a doggy door and put a pooch pad in the area where I want him to go. He goes to that area and squats. I have never seen him lift his leg on the patio, even though I have a lot of object (chairs, table, planters) out there to lift on. The minute I put his leash on and take him out the front door...he annoints every tree and bush in the complex.

Jean, Riley and Zeus!

same here, Henry was neutered at 6 months, and had always peed with the "lean forward" approach.
It was not until he was just over a year old when that leg started going up.

So now he does a combination of both depending on where we are standing for his business.

He turned a year in May and he is most definitely neutered.

Piaget is over a year old, not neutered and still prefers to squat, although it has turned into a funny lean with his legs stretched out. He will lift his leg on occasion (to mark his favorite post), but he is a squatter most of the time.

I am always amused when I see a young male lift his leg for the first time as they always seem to lift it too high and get off balance.

That must be a Chihuahua trait. Whenever we would dog sit our former neighbor's Chihuahua, Chloe, she would do the same thing. She could walk all over the grass on her front legs to the point where her body was almost verticle. That was how she did both #1 and #2. Of course when she was done peeing we had to wipe down her front paws because you can imagine the route the pee took to the ground.
