3 year old springer spaniel does not yet lift his leg to pee

Why will my 3 year old male springer spaniel not lift his leg to urinate?


From Anna@love-springer-spaniels.com

Hi there
My springer George still hardly cocks hi leg to pee, some springers just don't. He is healthly and happy so there is nothing to worry about.

It Takes Time NEW

My spaniel didn't start lifting his leg until he was 4 years old, so nothing to worry about.

Hi
JJ doesn`t often cock his leg and he`s 2 years old. He sometimes squats and sometimes cocks, he`s a happy, healthy lad, so you`ve certainly nothing to worry about :)

No Leg Lift NEW

My 2 year old doesn't lift his leg and doesn't seem to have any inclination to either.

My Springer, Charlie is 3 years old and he doesn't cock his leg either. I shouldn't worry, seems like a Springer trait. :-)

I don't see it's a problem NEW

My 3 1/2 year old springer is odd. He cocks his leg on everything he finds when he's out, but never does it at home. He always just lowers his body to go in the garden. It's a situation I'm really happy with. It means I haven't got a dog peeing on my walls, seats, plants, bins etc. I wouldn't worry if I were you.

springer not lifting leg to pee NEW

My 8 year old Springer never cocks his leg either. He is happy healthy and we think he copies his 9 year old sister. Don't worry about it.

No worries! NEW
by: Springer mommy

I have a 5 year old neutered male and 3 females. Duke has never lifted his leg to pee on anything. My husband says it's from being surrounded by too many girls! The vet says everything is fine with him.
Hope this helps!
