boys

I have a question. Do any of you have boy dogs that are trained to potty inside? Just wondering how that works out. Do they hike their legs and make a mess?

All of my Shih Tzus were trained to both outside and pads (while traveling) they squat when in a small space. Outside it is about going and marking and yes even males that have been sniped mark.

Brody uses the Ugodog inside (I live in an apartment). He is a squatter and has never attempted to lift his leg. I'm not sure if that is because of being trained on the Ugodog or if he'd be that way anyhow. He doesn't mark inside or out either. He sniffs everything in sight, but has never done the marking thing to-date.

Augie was trained to go inside, first newspaper, then UgoDog, until 8 or 9 months. I don't think I have EVER seen him lift his leg. He sniffs bushes and posts and trees where other dogs have marked, but he has never tried to mark. He was not neutered until 17 months. He still squats to pee outside, at 3 years old.

Finn still uses UgoDog, squats on that, will go outside, lifts his leg to mark plants, but he cannot have free reign of the house, because there are things he wants to mark (piano bench, back of couch ) if he is not watched. This has just started fairly recently. These two are so very different.

Kodi still uses an indoor litter box some of the time. He never lifts his leg in the litter box. He doesn't when he just needs to pee outside, either. Every once in a while, if he is in a place wher a bunch of other dogs have marked, he will daintily lift one hind leg, but he still is peeing in the ground, not on vertical surfaces.

Ours boys all prefer to go outside, and have a dog door, but if weather is really bad, we have two of the large size litter boxes in the dogroom. They are intact, so they do lift their leg. The high walls of the litter box contains it.

When traveling, and staying in hotel rooms, we carry a piece of marine vinyl, and tape part of it onto the wall with painters blue masking tape, and it drapes down on the floor some too. Piddle pads get taped onto that, going up the wall far enough, and down on the floor. We use the large size human incontinence pads from Sams. Then if it's late, and we dont' want to go out, or weather is bad, or for whatever reason, the boys use the pad.

They are trained to potty on command, and to go on what we tell them to.

hmmm, I was expecting that they would hike their legs after a certain age.

I was wondering about whether they eventually start to lift their leg. Joey is 5 months and went on a pad for the first 4 months. He is a squatter and I guess based on everyone's reply, he may remain a squatter, which is OK with me.

Tucker doesn't have a littler box, but he pees like Kodi (stretches his left leg out behind him) and only marks when we take him for a walk through the neighborhood.

I had a male German Shep that was 17 when he passed and he never lifted his leg. He always squatted.
