Hi all. Just wondering whether your little boy corgis lift their legs when peeing outside. Howie has started to do this recently. We wondered whether he ever would since he's so short. Now he does about 50% of the time. Pretty cute. :)
Steve started to lift his leg when he was around 4months old. He would lift his leg when he found a patch of grass that was slightly taller than the surrounding grass (I guess a tree was out of the question at the time with those super short puppy legs).
Brody was lifting his tiny leg when we brought him home at 8 weeks. It was so funny. But now he's stopped lifting and just squats. Craqar always has to lift his leg at the light pole we pass going to the dog park. Sometimes he loses his balance and almost falls, LOL!! Those short little legs are awesome!!
Yeah, that's what I always thought. He used to do it after pooping too, but I started discouraging it since he ended up with poo on his back paws a few times. I also won't let him do it on gravel. He makes a mess, and that can't feel good on his paws!
Hank is a hugely celebratory back leg scratcher after peeing and pooing (he once managed to kick poo onto my husband, so I appreciate why this one is much less cute!). It's often followed by a little joyful hop! I'm intrigued by the sense that it spreads the scent around. The only other thing I've heard is that it's intended to cover up the spot - but that seems like more of a cat-type action...
