Does your dog squat or lift?

I have a girl, and she squats.

Do all/most girls do that or does it vary?

  • Most males do lift while female squat but our female did both, guess she didn't want to get pee on her back leg LOL...

  • My female Sheltie is almost 4 and she squats. I've always thought that all females squat. With males, usually if they are neutered before they learn to lift their leg they will always squat (or so I've read). My male Sheltie is almost 2. He was neutered at 8 months, before he learned to lift his leg, and he still squats.

  • My males lift. My new female did squat until she saw the boys lifting. Now she kind of squats & lifts. It's funny watching her try to balance.

  • Yeah, both of mine walk as the pee (and poop). It is too funny!

  • Our male dog is a mix- not really sure what of (border collie, australian shepherd...) and he squats. When he poops, he takes FOREVER! But as long as he is potty trained, it doesn't bother me!
