He will begin to lift his leg as he begins to mature more. If he is neutered before this, he may never lift his leg. Many people, (usually guys) are embarrassed by this, because they think their dog "pees like a girl", but in all reality most people would be happier if their dog never lifts their leg in the long run.I know some males never lift there leg to pee or mark. My 5 month old male will squat and let everything out right off the bat. And then he will sniff the walk all the way home. Just curious on the other people's experience.
