WHY DOES MY DOG RAISE HIS LEG TO PEE?

Have you always wondered why does my dog raise his leg to pee? As you may be suspecting It has something to do with hierarchy and territory.

Dogs communicate a lot through smells and their noses. They even have scent glands that excrete when they poop! there called anal glands.

So Why Does My Dog Raise His Leg To Pee?


Male dogs raise a leg to urinate because it is urine that marks territory, and dogs like to appear taller and more dominant when they make a vertical line with their pee.


Dogs of both genders use pee to communicate and to assert social status, find potential mates, size up unfamiliar dogs, and limit potentially threatening contact during social introductions.

1. They are not a dominate dog
2. They are too young and will still develop the behavior
3. They are old and mobility issues prevent them from leg lifting.
