Why does my female Chihuahua dog lift her leg to pee?
I have no facts, only my opinion, but it makes sense to me>>> I think the reason why is because when she was a puppy, she learned it from my male dog. I always wondered why too. Then it hit me, she’s copying my male. That’s got to be it. Is your other dog a male? If so, there it is!! My female did it all the time. It sounds like your female is taking on the traits of a male, in that, she is marking her territory while out of her own zone, away from home. I feel that there is nothing wrong with it, if that what she wants to do, you can’t de-program her, nor would you want to. Personally, I always thought it was kind of cute, but strange. She didn’t lift her leg very far and kinda squatted and did the little leg lift thing. I don’t know how she kept her balance. I’m talking in past tense because I lost both of my pomeranians last summer after having them for 11 & 13 years. They were very ill and getting old. I miss them very much.
