    Default Cocking the leg

    Just wondering roughly how old they start cocking their legs at?

    Sparks is 18 weeks now & getting quite big now, he likes to sniff at trees & posts etc... but never scents or cocks his leg - also dosn't cock his leg when having a wee yet.

    Miles started lifting his leg at 7-8 months old...Truman is almost 6 months old and still pees like a girl

    Ollie was neutered around 6 months old, and now at 9 mos still does not lift his leg. Will he start, or since he was neutered before the hormones kicked in, will he always pee like a girl? (I hope he doesn't start!)

    I have a pup that will piddle so much (he was neutered at 6 months) he will wet both back feet. His owners wanted to know how to teach the boy to lift his leg outside, so they'd stay dry. So I guess to lift or not to lift-- neither way is perfect.

    My parents watched Miles when my fiance and I went on vacation last year, and when we dropped him off at their house he peed like a girl...when we picked him up a week later he lifted his leg! My dad claims he taught Miles how to lift his leg! Who knows if that's true or if it's just a funny coincidence!

    I forgot to mark the calendar when Charlie first lifted his leg ,
    but he was neutered at an early age, and has no problem peeing like the big boys.
