House Trained Dog Peeing Inside at Night?

My 6 year old Poodle has started peeing on the rug in front of the door during the night. Any other time during the day or evening if the door is shut he lets me know that he wants to go out. I did have a female dog visit who had peed on the same rug, but doesn't visit any more. Could this have something to do with the problem now and have you any suggestions on how to stop it? Thank you.

Sometimes a visiting dog marks territory that isn't theirs and it makes the resident dog insecure. Your dog is marking his territory. For some reason he gets nervous about it at night, possibly because it's quiet and there aren't other distractions to think about.

First, replace this rug. There is no way to clean it now and get all the smell out. Your dog will smell it even if you don't.

Next, boost your dog's confidence by taking him out for an evening walk around his neighborhood. Allow him to pee on all posts, bushes, etc. This is territory claiming behavior.

Last, you'll want to seriously consider crate training. It works on the principle that dogs instinctively dislike soiling their dens. By training a dog to stay in a crate at night they learn to hold it until morning. Here's a link to crate training an adult dog.
