    Default My husband is so proud

    Just went on our lunch time walk and Toby FINALLY lifted his leg on a tree I my husband to tell him and he's a proud daddy My boy is growing up and he's only 21 weeks I wonder how long it will take before he does this each time.

    lol lol lol!!! It took our Bob ages before he did it! I think he was more than a year old. But he is neutered, might have something to do with it. I laugh every time he does it, just cute how he stretches the aulde leg and nearly topples over. Bless the little doggies.

    Hmmmmm I don't know why Toby has started it really. He is not around other dogs besides his classes and the dog park once. He does see dogs on his walks but I don't remember any of them "showing" him how to do it.
    My moms current dog does not either. He is a 7 year old Collie. My dad says its because he has too much hair (something my dad will not cut, takes away the collie look).

    Has anyone had an issue with "marking" furniture because now their dog lifts? I've heard this but have never seen a dog do it because he can now lift. My Pekingese never marked our furniture, he only did it once and that was at a breeders home where I know the table was "used" before.

    What a coincidence....My husband has been taking Bentley (will be 10 months on the 26th) to a cemetery to walk. He said he turned toward him just in time yesterday to see him almost lying on his side & peeing on a lily. That's the first time for sure & hubby was proud, but he hasn't done it since. He has to be on a leash every time he's outside to potty so we see him pee every time. I was wondering if he'd be a squatter for the rest of his life. And, as for marking, he doesn't do that (yet) but our daughter's Bishon does every time he comes here. I thought it was because we have a dog in the house. Is that correct?

    Pippin first lifted his leg when he was 4months old. Even though he's now 5 yrs and was neutered at 18months he still lifts his leg.
    He only marked in the house twice, the first time I didn't see him do it, so I just cleaned it up. The second time I saw the leg lifting by my kitchen cabinet, told him "no" very firmly and took him into the garden, and when he finally went in the garden after lots of sniffing (it's important to find the right blade of grass I think ) I gave him lots of praise and a treat. No marking indoors since then.
