8 months old and still squating

Question:

My little boy, Zippy, is almost 8 months old now, and he still squats when he pees. He's the only dog in the family, so has no other male sibling to imitate. When can I expect him to start lifting his leg when he 'goes'.

Brady didn't start lifting his leg at all until Linda's Bella tought him. He still squats and he is almost 2 years old. He does lift his leg on walks a few times, but normally squats when he is just going outside to do his business.

Riley is over 2 and has never lifted his leg. Monte he will just lift it off the ground but does not hike it.

I wish Milo still squatted. I don't love his lifting his leg. He started a couple of months ago.

Holli, are you actually complaining about this? LOL. I'm glad that Kubrick has never lifted his leg (he's 1), I don't want pee flying all over the place, thanks much.

Isn't that a good thing?

Doesn't it mean he isn't alpha and won't mark? Riki started lifting his leg at three months, so I had him fixed at five. I wanted to wait till he was more mature but I was concerned that marking might become a bad habit. He still stops and pees on almost anything he can on our walks if I allow it.

He also has to pee every time Daisy goes to "protect" her! LOL

MacGyver just turned 2 and occasionally lifts his leg a fraction but basically squats. Moffat (Golden) is 14 and has never lifted his leg -- actually sometimes he lifts it a bit but puts it right down again.
