My Lab pup is 6.5 months old, hes been so good to train and hasn't toileted indoor since he was about 4 months old.
This morning I was sat in the lounge with him having a cuppa as per usual and he just sat and poo'd on the rug ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜– wtf is he thinking?!!

Don't panic. My dog has a couple of isolated incidents up to the age of 1 even though he was toilet trained.

I just went back to basics for a couple of days and took him out and praised him again for toileting outside.

He's thinking ' I need to poo'. Nothing more or less than that.
He's still a puppy and will have the odd accident.

i wasn't cross with him, I was just shocked Grin I guess he lured me into a false sense of security letting me think he was perfect Wink The back door was open as it has been for weeks! Like Biteyshark said, back to basics for a while.

He is also constantly licking/scratching his 'bits' is that normal?

At about a year old Battendog peed up my Dad's wall. In his defence, resting against the wall was a wreath made of twigs so I think he thought it was a bush Grin

He's never anything like it since.

I would be just as shocked as you if my dog did the same! I suspect there's a good reason behind it - perhaps it was an emergency or your dog wasn't feeling too well, or the weather was taking a toll on your dog's body. If it's a one off I wouldn't worry too much, but if it continues then it's worth booking your dog in for a health check to rule out any health issues.

heuristic I hope it's a one off! He's had gone abit random tbh. He was like clockwork pooing every morning at 5am, the last week he's only wee'd at 5, and poo'd later. who knows๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

My dog still does this and heโ€™s a bit older than 1, he does it usually if he has a stomach bug/is scared. Have any of you been out of the house for longer than you usually are, or has there been a change in his routine?

I had similar with my dog, once when he was a couple of years he crapped on DSโ€™s bed Envy
Nothing different, didnโ€™t seem out of sorts and never did it again. Unfortunately I had stripped the bed so there was a big steaming shit directly on the mattress. I moved DS into my bed for a couple of weeks and DH slept on the sofa until we could replace it ๐Ÿ™ˆ
