toilet training issues

Help! Herman my sprocker spaniel is 7 & a half months old, I brought him home when he was 2 months old, straight away he took to the puppy training pads that I put down for him (he did not go outside till he was fully vaccinated) & did all his wees & poos on them - he was such a good boy, gradually he began to do his business outside on walks (both on the way to our destination whilst on the lead & once at our destination off the lead), BUT I was never able to remove the training pads as he absolutely refuses to wee outside when I take him outside specifically for the purpose of weeing, whilst that has been frustrating for some time it is his recent behaviour (only started about a week ago) that is doing my head in - he is now doing wees all over the place - anywhere he likes - hard floor (lino), carpet, bath mat, my bed - even though the training pads are still on the floor (he does still use them sometimes but more often than not he doesn't), I simply don't understand it - he's regressing. Could this be stopped if I get him castrated? It was always my intention to get him done anyway, I know 6 months is the minimum age but the vet recommended 12 months.

Is he cocking his leg to wee? If not, then castration is not likely to make much difference.

First of all a vet check to rule out UTI

If all comes back clear, then go back to toilet training as if you first got him. Sometimes they do take a step backwards, but my first thought was urinary infection
