5 year old dog suddenly having BM and Urination in House

I am having a new problem with my 5 year old deaf ACD. She has desided to start urinating and having Bowlmovements in the house. Nothing has changed to make this happen. I have had her urine tested and no issue, and no worms. Im not sure why she is doing this. She is doing this when we are home. She has to be crated if we are away because she is distructive. I have had to start using puppy pads, which i dont want to do since i fell that is telling her its Ok to do this (also she does not always use them!) Please Help if you can! amber

Once you have ruled out any medical problems then is it possible that she is having seperation anxiety? Here are a few threads on the subject.
