Default House trained chi starting to go in the house

Oscar is just over 2 and while he's never been 100% house trained (he sometimes does a poo in the house now and then) he hasn't weed in the house for a year (unless we've been out literally all day and he can't hold it)

But for the past couple of weeks he's started weeing on the upstairs landing, the only place where there's carpet!! ? and also pooing.

Normally if we haven't let him out and he needs to go he will bark at the door to tell us, but he hasn't even been doing this!

I'm thinking of calling the vet so check it's not something medical and im thinking of putting pee pads down again but it's such a pain

Any advice? X

When i took on my X breeding chi she was doing the same,i took her out every 2 -3 hours and had lots of treats ready,she soon started going outside,also make sure you clean the carpet well,otherwise they go back to the same place.He hasn't been frightened by something outside ? or you've changed his diet

I would also suggest blocking off the area if you can. Physically prevent him from going there. If he doesn't do the same thing in other parts of the house, he may be returning there because the odor is still there. Really clean up the carpet well using a dog urine cleaner. I recently tried Roscoe and Roxie cleaner from Amazon and it is fantastic. Much better than Nature's Miracle.

Like jayda said, I would limit his access to the area too as well as cleaning the carpet. I would only allow him there after he's done his business outside, at least for a while to kick the bad habit away.

Rather than waiting for him to bark to go outside, I would recommend taking him out on a regular schedule for a while (and more often if you can). Could it be the winter weather putting him off from going outside?

I definitely think you should call the vet to get it checked out.
Have there been any changes to your schedule? If the vet doesn't find anything, I would try to put him on a strict eating/toileting schedule. That way, both you and the dog will know when he has to go. Dogs love routine.
