    I encourage squatting (extra praise when he squats and "uh-uh" when he approaches my garden swing to lift his leg!), it's less mess in our case. When we go out, it's more marking than weeing so he will always lift his leg then.

    My little guy will be 6 months old next week, and he still squats. I like it that way. Our neighbors male dog is always lifting his leg all over their fence when Jato is in our yard- I know their dog is marking his territory (yard), but it is gross to me.

    Pesto is coming up on 2 years old and still has NEVER lifted his leg, which I guess means he'll never start. He was neutered at 6 months old.

    I definitely prefer this way. He doesn't mark trees or other things outside, and he's never tried to mark inside other homes he visits even when there are other male dogs vying for dominance.

    On another funny note, we have a new baby sister for Pesto, "Basil" a female boston terrier. She is so front heavy with her big round head that she does little hand stands when she squats to pee, lol.
