Default Leaving big pellets on this bed

Malik just turned 9 and it seems that more and more often, every few days, we are finding a pellet on his bed, ususally the size of a small ping-pong ball, so not that small. During a visit in November, the vet mentioned that Malik had kind of week anal muscles and asked us if we ever found poop on his bed. That happened some then, but much more now. He didn't say if we should worry about it and I forgot to ask, as there was a more pressing health issue. Is this something of concern?
As a note, he eliminates regularly 3 times a day, his poop is on the harder side but not rock hard.
~ Malik, GSD, 10.5 yrs old
