Sorry to bother you, but I couldn't find anything on the web.
1) Do male wolves, foxes, hyenas, coyotes, jackals, dingoes, andAfrican wild dogs lift their rear leg when taking a leak, or is this practice limited to domesticated dogs?
2) Other than the domesticated house cat, do other cats try to coverup their poop deposits?

Hello GOD (aka brojack)...
Shouldn't you know the answers to ALL of life's little mysteries?

My cat doesn't even attempt to cover his "poop deposits" I think he is proud of them, and enjoys my reaction.

("OMG!! Who let the elephant get in the litter box??")

We do not refer to him as a "domesticated house cat"... as it is very obvious that he is ticking off the days of his 'captivity', and is only sticking around for the occasional bite of pickle-loaf - to which he has developed a slightly unhealthy addiction, imo.

As for these other creatures, they will have to speak for themselves.

Amen

One site said that dogs mark their territory by urination and the scent will be more pronounced the higher that it's away from the ground. Also, a higher marking suggests that it was made by a bigger dog. That's why we see little dogs really trying to elevate their emissions.
Another site said that both male and lady wolves lift their legs. Huh??!!? No further explanation was provided.
Nothing found on this subject regarding other members of the dog family.

The cat's mother disappeared before showing her kittens proper cat decorum, e.g., covering poopy and retracting claws.

God, you shouldn't be including hyenas in a canine question. Hyenas are closer related to felines.

Both, and only, the alpha male and alpha female wolves of a wolf pack will exhibit RLU. (raised leg urination). ALL others in the pack MUST squat.

It might help if you stated which kind of wolf you were referring to.

That's extremely interesting.
Talk about a hierarchical caste system!
