Hi,
We have a 6 year old, male, west highland white terrier who is always weeing next to the back door. We let him outside for a wee regulary and know its summer the back door is more or less permanatly open.
Does anyone have any ideas of how to stop this?
Thanks

First thing is to have him checked for a Urinary Tract Infection. This can cause excessive need to pee.

Also, he should have a regular vet check up as there are other things such as diabetes that can also cause the need to pee too much.

Once you get those checked out, the next thing is to approach this as a house training issue. But I'd be very concerned there is a health issue if this has come up in a middle aged dog who formerly was fine with house training.
