    Hi

    I have a 11 month old male westie puppy Freddie.

    We took him out for a lovely country walk with some family members and their 2 chihuahuas - 1 male & 1 female of similar age to our Freddie. Towards the end of the walk Freddie suddenly began cocking his leg over the chihuahuas. He has never done anything like this before. It was embarassing as he kept doing it.

    Does anyone know why he would do this - is it a dominance thing?

    We are planning to have him neutered in a few months. Would this stop this kind off behaviour?

    Heehee! Sorry sounds funny! But yeah I can imagine how imbarrasing it was!

    I have no idea about why he is doing it but I am sure someone will give you some advice! Good luck, lets hope he gets over it!

    A couple of piccys below - as requested.

    It was quite funny but embarassing at the time! He is such a cheeky boy.
