Marking in house (parent's dog)

Hey guys! Needing some advice for my parents' dog and I knew you guys could help. I have read a few threads about marking indoors but could not find anything with the exactly what I was looking for.

They have a male MinPin that is 11 yrs old. He has recently (like past few years) started making things in the house, particularly plastic bags, packages and chairs after visitors have left. A lot has been solved by not leaving things on the floor but you can't get rid of furniture! He does have a "doggie-door" but I feel that may be part of the problem; he can just run in and out and no longer separates the differences of outside and inside. To this point I think that this won't be an easy fix. I have suggest them try a belly band, with no dog door access (maybe even put a bag/box down to tempt him in peeing inside?). What do you guys think?!

With an older dog having any behavioral changes, I always like to rule medical things out first. I'd probably have a urinary analysis done. I do them annually once dogs turn 7 anyway. If it turns out to be behavioral and not medical, I'd try the belly band to at least keep things dry. It won't cure the marking.

Sorry I would go back to house breaking 101,& would make him think his world was going to end and you can verbally tell a dog off with out touching them.Example:When my Bouvier was young he did not know I was coming around the corner I had a towel in my hands. I popped him in the butt with the towel took him outside telling him off all the way. He never tried to lift his leg in the house again. I would get a black light go all over the house clean all places marked with Nature's Miracle. Keep a leash on him every time he even thought about marking would verbally tell him off on th way out to the yard. Crate him when unable to watch him marking is not allowed at my house. You just have to get your point across.
