Default Peeing on legs

Hi everyone, I joined this forum a while ago, but just found my way back! Any suggestions about a male dog peeing on his front legs while walking? My standard poodle is a neutered 15 month old. I don't want him marking everything on our walks....but he will just pee/mark as we walk anyway, even if we are in the middle of the street. Although it is hard to describe, I know it is marking versus peeing to relieve himself. He does not have any medical issues. Even when he is peeing to relieve himself, he will walk away before he finishes and pees on his legs. He seems to be in a hurry to get to the next item on his agenda LOL. This has gotten better as we have worked on a stand command, but he will still shift his weight and get some on him.
I wipe him down after each walk, but would really like to prevent it from happening. Today, I cut the bottoms of tube socks and put them on his front legs. They worked until they started slipping onto his pads...I ended up taking them off. I was thinking of trying a belly band on a few walks, but have no idea of these work or if it would help something like this.
Any ideas???
Thanks...Mary

All of my boys do this--one will walk and wee at the same time--or he'll start doing "kicky" before he's finished weeing.

Here's what works for me: I keep them focused on the walk and don't allow them to wee until the end (unless he actually has to relieve himself, then I let him go in the beginning. I teach mine to wee on command, "Go Squirt," so they know it's not all fun and games). Running helps too as they can't really wee and run at the same time. (You could try this until he learns it's not cool to wee on himself!) LOL

If you put a belly band on him it'll keep the wee off his front legs but won't stop him from actually doing it. (I use 911 Belly Bands from here to prevent marking in the house and LOVE them: 911 Belly Bands).

Hope that helps!

Thanks Rowan...I didn't know how belly bands worked! I will work on more focus during the walks. Unfortunately, I cannot run any longer due to ankle reconstruction surgery. I miss running terribly!!!

I'm sure others will have additional suggestions, but I really think if you can get him to view the walk as "exercise" and not a wee-fest, he'll soon stop. Does he only do it after smelling the ground and/or shrub, etc.? Try not letting him put his head down (to sniff) or stop--keep him focused on forward motion. It's all about focus.

Those are very pretty pups in your Sig!

If you're having any problems with marking or weeing in the house, the belly bands are ideal. You just wrap them around the dog's waist (covering the "winkie"). I always worry that my retired stud dog will sneak off and wee (and sometimes he just lifts that leg in front of me and wees--the other day he tried to wee on his brother while he was eating)! LOL I line the belly bands with 1/2 a poise pad to keep him dry in case he does get in a wee.

He does not mark in the house.
I agree that focus is the key....just so hard to get him to focus since he is so nosey during the walks!
Today after he pooped and peed for real, I walked in the street so he could not reach the grass. (I walk with my neighbor and her dog and Ace). He still tried to mark, even if it was in the middle of the road. I think I also need to take him on some one on one walks to work on this and pulling.
Thanks for the input and compliments on the boys. I usually take pictures with me cell phone, so they aren't as clear and nice as yours!
I just finished a manners class and I am still working on loose leash walking with clicker training.

Panda is also a serial leg pee-er! He is a little too well endowed so when he cocks his leg to pee his willy flops down and his stream aims directly at his front leg. Winds me up to no end as he has white legs so its painfully obvious when he has done it as his leg is bright yellow and it stinks, because it is not just a trickle but a full on pee on his leg he normally needs a bath after which is frustrating too. I have ordered some pee protectors but when they arrived they were tiny and didn't fit. I might look at getting some from dogsinstyle if they ship to the uk, I couldn't see them on the website though?
