Answer by Kate
Hi there are two possibilities here. Either he has an underlining illness which is causing this behavior or it is caused by something which has happened which has made him feel insecure and upset. In which case he is using his poo as a strong scent and territory marker.

I have a page about this here for more information

If you feel there could be an underlining illness then taking him for a check up is the best option. otherwise try the training method mentioned on the above page to see if this helps him.

best wishes Kate
