Cockaleggy! (dog, 8.5 months, still squatting to urinate - normal behavior?)

Willo is 8 1/2 months now but still wees like a girl! Any ideas how long he will take as the "book" on JS says 5 months onwards, I take him via lamp posts and let him sniff em but its Kimi the bitch who is more interested! I have checked!! he is really male!

I have a friend who had a whippet male that never did cock its leg ah well, your replies welcomed please xxx

I'm not really seeing the problem I've always gone for bitches anyway, so perhaps I'm missing something, but I've never seen any great virtue in aiming for verticals...

Some dogs never do cock their leg.

My friends dog is about 4 and he's never cocked his leg.

Each dog is different, some learn to cock their legs sooner than others.

I had a Boxer that lived to be 13 and never cocked his leg. Syd my Dobe will sometimes not bother to lift his leg either, although he started cocking his leg quite early, now when he does a really long wee he just stands there and lets it flow.

It really does not matter in the slightest

I know very young entire males that lift, castrated young and older males that lift, older entires that squat, experienced studs that squat or stand, some dogs that lift one day and squat the next. So long as your dog is peeing normally how he does it is not important

ETA - with a profusely coated breed just make sure that any peed on or splashed areas are kept washed and clean.
