Dog Pooping in the House After Being Boarded?

I boarded my almost 2 year old dog a couple weeks ago for a week. Now she is pooping in the house. I take her out every morning and make sure she pees and poops. I go to work I come home for lunch and to take her out and she has pooped on the floor. I am only gone 4 hours in the morning and 5 hours in the afternoon. Her stool is not loose, no diet changes, she went to the vet the week before boarding, and does not have parasites. I had blood work done and everything was perfect. I have to believe she is mad at me for boarding her and is getting her revenge. She has even pooped on the couch; twice.

How do I get her to stop? I have started crating her again like I did as a puppy.

Pets do not like their routines messed with and a week away from you has upset her routine and she does not know how to return to the previous cycle.
You will have to thoroughly clean any place that she has peed or pooped in your house - repeat - thoroughly clean as they can smell much better than any human.
Try to return to the exact routine you were doing before the boarding took place. The only exception should be that you leave her in her crate until she has a period of adjustment.
Do not view this as a punishment (many dog owners have no choice but to leave their pets in crates for the hours they are away) so do not act like you feel sorry for her that she had to spend time in her crate - they can be sensitive to our feelings. Take her out side like normal and soon she will be back on track.

Very important - clean the sofa and any floor area before letting her roam.
Here is a link on how important this job is.

Her schedule was interrupted. Keep her crated until she gets back on track.
