Peeing on his feet. Really?!?

Now that Uther is consistently lifting his leg to pee, he pees all over the backs of his front paws! His pee stream is really long. It is so gross and causes him to get stinky so he needs to be washed off after almost every walk. YUK!

Any tips?

He'll figure it out eventually, only took mine like 1 or 2 times of peeing on himself to stop. He now lifts his leg up really really high and usually tries to pee on something, not just the ground anymore. Where in southeast Wisconsin are you located?

Ugh, yeah...Mine does that as well.... every time. He's 2 years old.

He'll try to avoid it occasionally by moving his front feet far in front.... but, that's not very often. Most times, he pees all over his front legs... sometimes it even goes higher on his legs. When I first got him in January, he peed ALL over his elbows and up almost to his shoulders. He's peed on his face.... ugh... it's disgusting. I've never had such a sloppy pee-er. All my males lifted their legs and I never had any of them actually pee on themselves.

I just keep a box of baby wipes by the back door, and I also keep the hose ready. It's gross, but... there's no way to stop it. Not that I know of at least.

Yup. Mine is also offended by his own urine. He gets this disgusted look on his face as he licks his legs clean. There aren't too many doggy kisses here!

Jazz is almost 3 years old and still pees on his front paw. He licks it clean afterward and I've never smelled urine off him so I guess he does a good job, lol.

Oh boy, my four month old is still a squatter and does this too. He won't lick himself clean though, his favorite thing to do is try and jump on me before I can wipe him off I'm hoping this issue is resolved when he starts hiking his leg up.

My two year old also pees on his leg

He lifts his leg so darn high when he goes that his stream splatters.

I have wiped his leg with a wet paper towel or he will lick it off....I know gross!

That and letting his red rocket stand up and be counted at some point during every training class are two reasons that I am not unhappy to not own a dog anymore. All bitches here.
