    Maybe the first time they urinate on their legs and get wet and smelly?

    I saw puppies urinating the same way as their parents do, right when they learned to urinate standing.

    Not all dogs do all the time -- but I have seen puppies that are barely able to stand try to lift their leg to pee, and get it down pat as soon as they don't tip over tongue. If your puppy is 6 months old and still not getting it, then it might be a good idea to take him to the vet and rule out any possible physical issues, especially if he's a breed that is known for hip or joint issues.
