You might be right! Check with your Vet and see what he/she thinks.

With him only having 3 legs due to how he was born, I sometimes think that maybe going toilet on his own accord outside may be too much effort for him to get there in time?????

Hi folks, thank you for your responses!
Angus can be out having a walk or just sitting in the garden, where he'll sometimes "do" his stuff but then as soon as he comes in, he "lets" go, just as if that area is his own personal toilet!
I'll try some things out and let you all know how it goes!
Thank you,
Chris.

Geeze! That's strange!

I use a product called Nature's Miracle that removes all stains and ordors. It really works!! (REALLY) But it's hard to know why he is doing that... but if you can get the ordor totally gone from that area he might stop! Sometimes bleach just isn't an option.

I purchased Nature's Miracle on-line from Petco, but I'm sure it can be purchased other places too.

Good luck! Looks like you are going to be walking the dog more!! LOL!! (Sorry)

Interesting -- only in the kitchen? Do you use bleach or white vinegar when you clean it to make sure he doesn't still smell his scent? Are you in the kitchen with him when he does that? Does he only do that when you're out?

Hi team, Angus my 5 year old, 3 legged Westie has recently developed a need to urinate in our kitchen. He does this predominately in two places and is now becoming a nuisance.
I have also had him doing number twos (stools) also from time to time!
He is walked regularly and given the run of the garden when he wants.
It's just a newish thing that's happened and I wondered if other have had similar happenings?
