BUT..this morning he tried so hard bless him to stand on three legs to try and wee...it was so funny, he hasnt tried since haha.... does anyone elses oes pick leg up to wee, i never thought he would try as hes so big, must be difficult to balance lol
|Yes, Simone! She also squats at the same time.......but thinking recently as her age is catching up and she's getting stiff in the rear.....she's just squatting. Harry lifts, but can't lift too high, more like a slight cock to the side. Squatters are easier on the shrubs, no wall marking, all in all, a neater dog.|
|Our best funny was the 1st time Chewie had his backpack on (full) and he lifted his leg to pee.......tipped right over!!|
tipped right over!!
|My male is five years now...still doesn't lift his leg usually. My first OES lived to be almost 15...and never lifted his leg to pee...Is that something they need to be taught?|
|Our Bentley NEVER lifted in the 2 1/2 years he was with us. Before him, we had a Cocker and he usually lifted. I wonder if it's a size thing. The bigger they are the harder they hit when they slowly tip over...|
|Nope, they need to see another male do it to understand. My boys generally lift & about 1/2 way thru get lazy & end up resting their leg on the boards that frame in the dog run!|
|Dexter has never seen another male lift his leg so self taught. He was wobbly for a while and sometimes had to drop his foot back down but now is as solid as a rock and lifts his leg about hip high.|
His aim is still terrible but he rarely pees on his front leg now!
|haha.. made me laugh |
Never treid it since ... he lifted put it down lifted, almost toppling over. He couldnt balance bless him, i say stick to squatting hehe...
|They don't have to see another male do it - it is enough to come across a spot where another male has done it. They will sniff and seem to instinctively "know" how to get their's up that high (the pee) to cover the other dog's scent.|
|Both mine lift, most of the time. At times Gar will squat, the other day on a walk he squated and lifted at the same time and peed on his front leg. That was the first time I had ever seen that and hope I don't again.|
|Chauncey will lift on walks but only occasionally in the yard. When on walks he is ambidexterous He has never seen another male do it. He is fairly alpha. .|
Our OTB lab, Jake was 13 and never attempted to lift, but stopped to smell everything on a walk. He loved to poop where ever there was a light at the end of the driveway or a motion sensor light ( and he knew where they were ). He had absolutely NO alpha genes. I'm not suggesting personalities plays into this but.......both were trained using the same method
