My close to 2 year old male still stands to pee. He only does that when he's held it for a long time and has to go really bad, otherwise he lifts his leg. I don't think it matters much to me whether he lifts his leg or not, as long as he does it outside!!!
Hi. My moms goldendoodle, an almost yr. old male, still squats to pee. According to her vet., if a male is neutered too early, they may never hike.,....so Jake may never hike....he was fixed early. My sisters black lab mix, almost 2 yrs. old sometimes squats, sometimes hikes. WHo knows when they will....or if they ever will. Stubborn little dogs!!
Buck was about 10 mos whe he started to hike, but some boxers I know waited til much later..You can't train them, it just happens...And some never do....Samson wasn't neutered til he was 6, so obviously the "hiking" was something very ingrained into him
