Thank you for the additional info. The best approach is going to be an examination by a veterinarian. They will likely want to run a urinalysis for good measure to rule out a urinary tract infection and may also recommend bloodwork, x-rays and potentially an ultrasound based on what they find. Intact male dogs are prone to prostatic issues, as well, which may involve difficulty or pain urinating or defecating in the near future, if this might be what is wrong. The treatment will depend on what is diagnosed during the examination but may range from a course of antibiotics to neutering to referral to a specialist.
