Default Uh oh.

I'm not sure what to put this in. Training, grooming, or health and behavior?

This question is for those with female fluffs. Only because I assume males wouldn't have this problem. When Sophie goes potty she pees on her left leg. She tilts to one side when she goes potty. Is there a reason she does this? Is there any way I can get her to stop? Thank you!

Lady did the same thing. Not much you can do about it. I had to keep the hair on Lady's feet and legs pretty short and wash her a lot.

That is one plus with boys. Bailey lifts his leg so I can keep him in a town and country cut and he stays really clean.

Check the fur on her tinkler, maybe it needs trimmed a bit

My Violet does that, she acts like she doesn't want her bum too close to the ground. bio Groom comes in handy for that. She has a long coat, and I spray and wipe off with a washcloth. The trouble with the boys, they pee and walk right through it. I have to wipe their feet off

It looks like it's 2.5- 3 inches. I didn't know that was suppose to be trimmed. How long is it suppose to be?

LOL. I think my guy really is 'metrosexual'. He pees and backs away from it. He acts like his pee and poop are the most disgusting things ever. He even runs to me so I can wipe him. If I don't, he invariably cleans himself down there.

Yes, I do trim Zoe's hair from her tinkler too. I usually clean her after she pee's to catch anything that may drip. Also, the Biogroom is a great thing to have so you can wash without wetting the hair.

Pipper is like that too. When he's done peeing he does this funny little hop to make sure he gets over top of it and doesn't get any on his feet. Thank goodness because I'm a clean freak. Then we he comes back in he sits right down and cleans his boy part off. Just have to remember not to let him lick my face afterwards.

Hopefully it is just her tee tee wick that needs to be trimmed. Jack acts like he's afraid of the tee tee and poop. He jumps away from it like a little rabbit. They're such funny adorable little fluffy butts.
