    Default The Higher the Poop the Better?

    Any biologists that can explain this behavior in dogs?
    It is interesting that puppies at 4 week this behavior already shows up.

    ..my guy walks thru the tallest grass to get it thru his back legs, trying to leave his pile on top of it. I was told its a male dominance thing, leaving their scent the highest. Ive seen Coyote and Fox do the same atop stumps,etc...

    But the real question is: Do any of you out there have a male who will lift his left and then take a crap at the same time? Mine will not always do it, but it seems like he is trying to multitask more and more lately.

    My Golden always liked to back his rear end up to tall grass to do his business and my buddies lab does the same thing. We just thought they were shy....

    My yellow doesn't exhibit any such behavior as of yet.

    I always think of it as a male thing. None of my bitches have done it.

    Yet.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Mine likes to go in tall grass/weeds. At times he will lift a rear leg.
