9 year old min. schnauzer pooping in the house

by Chantill
(Olathe, KS)

Our dog Kingston is house broken. He is even so smart where he will alert you when he has to go to avoid having an accident inside. However for the past 2-3months he has been pooping inside of our home, in the same area and without warning. Just looking for some help as I have run out of options. Could it be due to his age? Nothing has changed in our home and he's healthy. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks In Advance

Kingston pooping

Hi Chantill,
We have heard of this happening before from other owners, and it is usually adult male dogs We are really sorry, we don't know the answer, perhaps some other owners have suggestions?
Here is a useful article on the subject, regarding possible causes:
