When will my male GSD stop squatting like a girl?!

I have heard different things on this topic so just wondering what everyone's experiences have been with this. He is currently 9 months old and apparently they say he lifts his leg at daycare when he pees but any other time he always squats like a girl! haha

I noticed that when Ozzy marks, he lifts his leg, but when he actually has to PEE, he kind of squats.

Wolfie is 13 months and still squats. Chief lived until he was 12 and squatted his whole life, except when he went to the vet. He hated a certain vet and always lifted his leg and peed on the wall when he saw the guy.

Males will squat occasionally throughout their life, especially if there is no bush handy.

Both my male GSDs still squat! i'd prefer them to squat to be honest, looks better than lifting the leg and squirting it out everywhere

This. A lot of males will lift their leg to mark when another dog has been there, but when they actually have to urinate they squat. Doesn't make them any less "manly."

My almost 2 year old male squats most of the time when he pees. I've noticed he lifts his leg to mark when other male dogs are around though.

Gunnar will be 4 years old in August and he JUST started to lift his leg in the last couple of months, but only when he's marking. When he has to pee, he squats.
