Lately when we take Gordon out to do his business he will start to poop but then starts peeing at the same time. I don't think he has any idea he is doing it as it usually goes all over his front paws. Could this actually be him marking his territory? Does anyone else's puppy do this?
My dog doesn't do this. But I was downtown last week and this guy had a husky, and the dog stopped by a garbage can and started to urinate on the sidewalk. No lifting his leg, no squatting. Just standing and urinating. It was going all over his paws. He didn't seem to care. Maybe some dogs are just like that. I have no idea how one would train a dog to stop doing it, or if that is even possible. Most dogs try to keep their waste off of themselves.
Baloo's never done that, no..? I'd have him checked for a UTI if it seems like he's peeing and not aware of it. I don't think it's marking behaviour, no.

Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
I think Gauge has done this once. I always thought it was because they had to go both #1 and #2 at the same time equally as bad.
