Lift the leg up

So the other day i was shocked to discover that my little baby 4 month old Milo has started to lift his leg up to pee! Now he is doing it all the time! Total proud mummy moment lol.

Is it normal for him to do that so young?

Mine is 3 and doesn't do it. This makes me happy since he uses an indoor tray so no spraying on the walls!

Leo started lifting his leg at 6 months. I think it varies considerably from pup to pup.

Yeah, Kodi lifted his leg for the first time sometime after 2 1/2. But he still doesn't do it for "normal" peeing... Only if he's marking over where another dog has marked. So funny.

The first time Tycho, my Coton, lifted his leg - he was about 5 or 6 months old I think - he fell over. It was the funniest thing; I tried so hard not to laugh, poor boy!!!

Well Ginger, being a girl, of course squats. Every once in a while though, she will semi-lift a leg if she sniffs something on a tree trunk, trying to "hit the mark". Makes us laugh.

Emmie sometimes lifts her right back paw up when she pees; it's not quite a leg lift but friends laugh because they don't expect it since she's a girl. I'm so used to it that I don't even notice anymore. LOL -Jeanne-

My female Coton, Pamba, used to lift a leg just like a boy - not always, but often. Apparently it's quite common for bitches to do so. I think they must all listen to Ray Davies (the Kinks - well, THAT dates me!!!) singing "Lola" and the bit about "boys will be girls and girls will be boys"…?!
