    Lifting the leg is a "learned" behavior.  Unless the dog is around other males, he may never really lift his leg and mark things like trees, etc.

    They say if he had more females siblings then males, he will copy cat a female in peeing and vise versa.  If a female is around more male siblings, she may slightly lift her leg.  Our female does it.  She will lift her leg to pee (about 1-2 inches off the ground).

    Has it occurred to you, your dog may be a transsexual? Is he always playing with your beauty products and make-up?

    Give your dog some privacy. Why do you stare at it? 😂😂

    How old is this dog? Is it just a puppy or is it an adult? Male pups will eventually hike their legs as they get older. Not enough information.

    Google your question for far more information.

    Simple.  Leg lifting is a learned behaviour.  He's obviously never had a dog around constantly to teach him.  And there's always a few dogs who just simply never lift their legs.

     i dont honestly know unless its a pup, The dog pictured below still does it on occasion Though he is a five year old working sheepdog... that is free from any medical complaints

    Ive never really questioned his motives either though. Because im a male that pees often when sitting on the john

    Is the dog old?  Dogs, like people, as they age, become less limber.
