At what age do Lab pups start peeing like dogs?

Hi. I have a male Lab who is 6.5 months old. Till about a month ago he was on a diet of Pedigree Professional Range Large Breed Puppy Kibble along with brown rice, veggies, rotis, curd and eggs. For the last month, I have been mixing boiled chicken in his diet. I would like to understand if its ok for me to feed him boiled beef sometimes instead of chicken. I have done some research and have found mixed opinions about beef. Not a lot of people in India prefer feeding beef (mostly due to religious sentiments) and some for other reasons as well. Is there anyone on this forum who feeds beef to their dogs and if so, what is the recommended quantity? My dog is totally healthy, goes for a 3 kms walk daily and then 30-40 mins of playing fetch and running around in the playground so leads a very active lifestyle. My second question is that he still pees like a pup and does not raise his leg. At what age do Lab pups start peeing like dogs?

Hi Gautam,
At 6.5 months he is still a puppy. Also lifting his leg depends on the place he pees. He is a pup till he is 18 motnhs old. Regarding the beef - Feed him smaller quantities for the first week and check out the consistency of his poop. If his bowel movement is good you can very well feed him beef. My dogs enjoy beef tail very much. Make sure not include much fat during summer.

beef is NOT suggested for labs.. they are better on poultry . else will gain unwanted weight.

Hi Anil: Guess this is why I had mentioned that Danny has a pretty active lifestyle so the possibility of putting on weight does not exist. As long as he can digest beef without any problems, I am fine. So I did get some beef yesterday and boiled it with some turmeric. Once it was tender I mixed a little in his food. He seemed to love it. I have a vendor who supplies good quality beef so I'm not too worried about the quality of meat.

Thanks for your tip anyways. I will continue to feed him chicken as well and beef occasionally.

Would also appreciate any other feeding tips from you and anyone else.
