Default When will he start lifting his leg instead of squatting?

Petey still squats to pee.He is 4 months old now. I was just wondering when puppies usually start lifting their leg to pee?

Thanks a bunch
Petey's Mom

Kaiser doesn't squat he just pees standing up without lifting his leg. *He does turn a little so he doesn't fee on his front paws. *He's 5 and a half months

YES, I feel the same way. We had Poe neutered at 5 months old , he hadn't started leg lifting or 'humping' or any other annoying male habits. He is 17 months old now and still squats.

Odin is an intact male... almost 5-months old... and just stands outside and pees where he may... no leg-lifting, no squatting... he just stands and pees with a dumb look on his face... he usually pees between his front legs in that stance.

Also, he was humping like crazy around 4 months... for the past few weeks, he just stopped doing it.

Once again... he's still intact.

My last male was neutered at 4 months and did not lift a leg until he was 3. He was a squatter. I actually think he saw his buddy Rocco lift his leg to a tree and then he learned how to lift. He then would only lift a leg on a mailbox. *Every, every, every, mailbox.... :P

Rocky lifted when he turned a year and that was because we took him to visit another male boxer

Buck was almost one when he started hiking his leg, but a friend on another forum was just saying that her 2 yr old just started hiking his leg, so you just don't know..The neutering does make a difference tho, my sis had her Golden, Jake neutered at 5 mos, he never hikes his leg. Samson wasn't neutered til he went to the rescue, so he definitely hikes his leg....Just don't so what I did the first time they decide to hike...I was walking Buck the first time he hiked and I started jumping up and down like an idiot, saying that my baby was now a man!!! People passing me by must have thought I was nutz...
