How can I get my dog to stop pooping in the house?

My 3 year old doxie mix has started pooping in my mom's bedroom a few times a week. Sometimes within a few minutes of pooping outside. He is completely housebroken and has only recently started this behavior. We have not changed his food, the vet says he is not sick. I need some suggestions as to how to fix this!

I think Evan is developing territorial issues either with your mom or another pet that "lives" in her room maybe? I suggest a baby gate or some method of blocking his access to her room for a while.

Dieta

You will have to go back in training. Start over with putting her in crate while not watching constantly.
Clean all areas that are soiled with natures miracle.
Something happened but her training broke down for one reason or another.
