    Default Lifting his leg now!

    On our walk this evening, Tate leaned against a tree and lifted his hind leg to pee. This is a first! Is this another sign of his teen phase? he's almost 9mos old.
    He did it again later on but it was a street sign post. It was so interesting to observe this b/c he's my baby and i feel like he's growing up. I got all excited and jumped up and down a little I know, i'm weird . Is this what they call "marking" their territory?

    ... Yup you are in puberty now!! Jake gets his leg so high... especially on big boulders when we walk...that he's gotten his leg stuck up on the rock!! Real special when you have to UNHIKE his leg for him!! Congrats to Tate...and let's just hope there isn't a peeing contest in their future!!

    Awww, little Tate is growing up! , my hubby was so excited when Frank finally started lifting his leg sometimes. I think Frank was closer to a year when he started doing that and still most of the time pees like a girl.

    Bo too. Still pees like a girl. I love it. I don't want him to grow up.

    Congrats Henny! Your baby is growing up!

    Tubs still pees like a girl. I don't see him changing. I have heard that if you get them neutered before they lift their leg they may never learn to do that. I am fine with that. I have a friend who's 6 year old golden still squats! Congrats on you exciting achievement.

    Vegas is 2.5 yrs old and ALWAYS has peed like a girl, I have never seen him even attempt to lift a leg. Vegas was neutered young also around 4 months. We adopted him at 4.5 months old.

    Thanks all. Tate looked so proud too when he was doing his new leg trick! His little brother is still squatting tho and i think Tate likes the fact that he has a "leg up" on Finn!

    You know..Jake still squats most of the time..unless he goes "Where The Big Dogs Roam"... The best of all is my female Dena..does a combo..she squats AND lifts a hind leg!!

    He's marking his territory. I think I would be a bit surprised if Wilson lifted his leg. Jack even as big as he is still squats which surprises me for him. Wilson did start marking a few weeks back but only outside when we were out on a walk. He started leaving a little piss here and there and now he'll do the same thing in the yard. I don't think they'll do it in the house since we have a doggie door but one never knows - I sure hope not. Our guys are growing up and will a year old before long.
