    • The first question to ask is why did he do that after 10 years of not doing it? Has something changed in the household? Is he ill?

    • Those are my thoughts too, he is 10 and may be starting with bladder issues, maybe a trip to the vet is needed.

    • He is a fixed Shih Tzu, he took 8 months to potty train when I bought him from a breeder at 12 weeks old. I’m home with him most all the time, or someone is, and he does go to back door when he needs out. But, he has always went in one spot either at night or sometime when we wasn’t watching. So, when we bought new carpeting last year, we ripped out everything, cleaned and used a odor block primer paint used to cover pet odors before having the new carpet laid. And I haven’t seen him go since(that’s not to say he hasn’t though) but the other night, I was sitting in the room, he went over sniffed and peed, right in front of me, I couldn’t believe it! I have his cage back out now to put him in at nights or when we go anywhere. Just makes me mad, between him doing that, twins spitting up on it for the last 6 months ugh ! Oh, and he has been to the vet recently, he’s healthy.

    • I was going to say if that’s happening then it must be health problems, but you said you took him to the vet and he’s healthy which is great but I wonder why he is doing that unless something has changed in the household? Like maybe your giving a lot of attention to the twins and not as much to him? I know when routines change in a household, dogs will notice it and react to it. Hope you find out what it is.

    • Frannie, it could be stress..? The house is very chaotic with all the babies, but it always has been.
