hi there. i have a 2 1/2 yr old male shitzu and he has been fixed and house broken for 2 1/2 yrs. just four days ago he started to go downstairs ( to main room) from our bedroom which he always sleeps

he always sleeps on my bed or right next to my bed .. he wont move away from me for a sec

he always asks to go to the bathroom

four days ago we have noticed that he has been sneaking away from the bedroom and going downstairs to another room.

he sleeps there for couple hrs pees (every night) then he'll come back upstairs after his nap.

can some please explain this?? thank you so much!!!

Hmm...I'm not sure exactly...have you had any visitors? Pet visitors? Does he only do this in the middle of the night?

When a previously toilet trained dog stops being toilet trained it's vet time.
Could be a UTI (urinary tract infection), diabetes or other medical problem.

I wouldn't attempt to address it behaviorally (ie. do training with him) until you've cleared him with the vet. Make sure when you see the vet the vet hears about the behavior change.

After being cleared by the vet-I'd start asking those questions like Brittany said-what's changed?
