Ben started lifting his leg just before he turned two. I don't know if that is typical or not.

Now he lifts his leg to pee on everything when we are on our walks...utility boxes, trees, light poles, fire hydrants, hostas, tall blades of grass...you get the idea.

Charlie was about 18 months old. In his own back yard he would still squat like a girl but when we went hiking or whatever he would lift his leg. He obviously smelt other dogs and wanted to put his two cents in too. He's 9 now and lifts his leg on walks and public things but in the back yard, if he's in a hurry, feeling lazy, he'll squat still. I don't think there is a set age. Definately public places where other dogs have gone will help Fin lift his leg.

Java's is 13 months and still squats...I don't think there's anything to worry about. Although I shared your confusion at first, I don't think a male squating to potty is indicative of any underlying medical issues.

We're going to get Bodie neutered in the near future. Will a male dog still lift their leg after being neutered?

Personally I think it's funny when Bodie goes pee. He squats down and his tail stands at attention like a flag pole. Most of the time that's the only way we can tell he's getting busy since his legs are so short.

The Bagel has been neutered for 10 and half years and not only does he still leave P-mail all around the block, he still has urges (he is now shooting with blanks) when the next door neignbors rotty's came into heat. We have to schedule a water stop so the Bagel can replensih his supply of Beagle magic marking fluid on our walks. Once learned no forgotton!

You know what's really funny? Sometime Violet lifts HER leg! It's hilarious. She's actually trying to keep it out of the way of the puddle, but she does lift up one of her back legs while she squats sometimes.
