Max seldom lifts his leg. When he does, it is usually more about marking territory.

When I got Buddy he would lift his leg high and proud. But after a few months living with only females he started to squat, too. After I had him neutered he has continued. Majority of the time he square and only occasionally lifts his leg.

I have to chuckle at this thread .... Sorry to the male GR owners ... But it's ironic that many suggested he socialize with other males to learn to lift his leg - my parent's female used to lift her leg to pee - only slightly but when our Maggie came along - she learned that trait also - probably from spending so much time with my parent's dog - I now wonder whether Bella will lift her leg which would be quite funny on a much larger dog

Cozy, my mama yorkie, was raised by Lucky my previous Golden the longest so she lifts does a squat with a rear leg lifted. Roxy is so short at 3.5 pounds she lifts her leg but you can't tell. Zoey used to squat to pee but would do a handstand for #2- Back legs would come forward up to her ears.

Lucy never picked up any of these traits she squats all the way into the dirt.

Buddy does a beautiful puppy pee- Very funny with a 95 pound male Golden. If you laugh when he does it- You get a very dirty look from him- Like "MOM! Stop laughing! I had to pee!"

My border collie was awesome at the leg lifts, sometimes I honestly thought he would topple over!

It was a sight to behold, gave me many a great laugh.

My Renny squats slightly, too. Probably won't ever lift his leg. But that's what so endearing about him!

I used to have a poodle who hadn't learned to lift his leg, until he watched an older dog do it. Immediately after, my poodle lifted his! It was so funny!

Coop only lifts his leg when on walks and he marks a post or tree other males have been at. He is a semi-squatter too, just l-e-a-n-s a bit forward and goes. So far, thankfully he misses his front legs, but glad he is a leaner not a lifter.
