I have 6 month old Min pin and hes really god about getting to business when i bring him outside to eliminate. The only issue is he squats his lower half down to urinate and ends up getting a lot on his front legs. Is there anything i can do to stop him from doing this?

my dog is almost 3 1/2 yrs old and he still pees on his feet sometimes, so I'm not sure if there's anything you can do to stop it, but if you figure it out, I'd LOVE to know! :) I usually end up calling him pee-paw for the rest of the day.

lol. Ive noticed some dogs will hike their leg and some will squat. Is that just instinct or do they pick it up somehow?

My dog does both. If he's peeing on just the grass he squats and lifts one leg like an inch off the ground which makes him aim straight for his foot, but if we're near a tree or something like that, he'll lift his leg to pee. Once he almost peed on his face. :eek: He squated to take a poo but started peeing instead and almost peed on his face!

Mlaes will usually start to lift their leg as they go through puberty - usually to mark a vertical surface. They will still squat from time to time, however. They will keep doing this to some extent even after they are neutered.

Some females will also lift their leg but it isn't common.

Some males that have been neutered early will never exhibit the leg-lifting behavior. But so what - if it doesn't bother them it shouldn't bother you.

It only bothers me because i have to pick him up to bring him up the stairs to our apartment he pees on his leg his leg touches me and Ewww. I have to clean him up every time i take him outside it would be nice if he could miss hitting himself and letting him run around with urine on his leg just dosnt seem to sanitary to me.
