Lift your leg!

Ugh my 6 month old Yukon has not figured out that lifting his leg when he pees is more successful to him not peeing on himself. He will kind of crouch down a tiny bit to pee (like you see male puppies do) but sometimes ends up peeing on one of his front legs and then I have to clean him up before going back inside.

WHY does he not lift his leg?!? Any tips or advice?

Our 11-12 year old golden doesn't lift his leg either.

Well, unless there are ladies around. Then he has to demonstrate he's a guy. Otherwise it's "why bother?". LOL

The dogs can be monkey see monkey do about things like this.

My girlfriend's 3 yr old (ish) German Sheperd Mix JUST figured out he can lift his leg.... but he doesn't do it often. We blame it on him being raised by nothing but girl dogs.

My boy, Bear, is 3 months old and doesn't lift, but he's got the penis hair to make sure he aims properly.

My brothers Rdigeback mix doesn't lift his leg half the time either. He does a half assed sideways squat lean thing and makes it happen.


lazy hound lol

Huh see I've always had two males at a time and that is what I attributed the leg lift learning to and I guess that is true! LOL He is just around a female now.

Shadow finally figured it out by watching other dogs in the neighborhood - but he'll only do it if he has something to pee on (post, pole, tree, etc). If it's an open patch of grass - he still slightly bends in the knees.

My parents dog - nearly 12 - rarely, if ever lifts his leg. Just never did it. He does do a very nice lunging squat - so no mess problems.

Yeah the peeing on his own leg thing is getting old. I'll have to take him to hang out with my parent's lab!

My female lab does this. She had surgery at a young age (ectopic ureter) and now has a small clasp around her urethra to control leaking. So we now have no more leaking but due to the clasp she takes a couple minutes each time to pee cause she is having to force it through the clasp. End result is she pees on a hill and it all ends up on her paws

Sorry. This topic brought a classic Steve Martin clip to mind:
