Hi there, I'm new to the forum.

I've got a Maltese / Jack Russell terrier. He's 9 years old and he's been a great family dog. He's clever and attentive.

The problem is that he would always pee and poo on the side of the house where the ground is covered in mulch. However, in the past 2 years he's developed a habit of stopping short of his toilet area and relieving himself on the paved area.

Although he mostly still goes in his toilet area he will now always on paved area and not where he used to.

I really want to re-train him as the area he's now using is right under the pullout washing line.

Has anyone got any proven suggestions??
