What I would do is put down some "wee wee" pads or potty training pads in that spot. Then, as he gets used to using the pad, move the pad to the place that you want him to go potty. Another thing, is that my dogs like to pee on plastic, so during the potty training phase, I put a piece of grocery bag on the papers. They LOVE to pee on them and then I can slowly move the pads out the door in another place in the house.

My ten year old peke is pooing in the basement. She loves to pee and poo in the house. This is driving me crazy! Maybe I need to litter train her?

Connie, from my experience, one you paper train a dog, it is practically impossible to un-paper train them. I use the wee wee pads because I have an elderly dog who has many bladder stones and cannot wait to go outside to urinate while I am at work. Just a thought.
