Ok, so not exactly a basic q but.. I have a male border collie, 10 weeks old and has just started doing this thing where he stands over my feet but seems to position himself so that his boy bits are just lightly touching my foot/toes, he has sometimes even appeared to cock his leg... he'll do this for a few seconds, standing awkwardly and then walk off. Is there there a point to him doing this and what is he actually doing?

I'm having a hard time picturing what you're describing, but if it were me, I would move my feet and re-direct him to something else.

Mine does that to get me to scratch his butt. Looks like he is lifting his leg to pee on me, but he just LOVES his fanny and inside of his leg scratched! After I scartch one side, he'll spin around and lift the other leg to try to get me to do that side!

Muggsy would sometimes approach people butt first to get his butt scratched. Try scratching right at the base of the tail and see what he does.
