Dog Started Pooping Inside at New House?

Recent my 2.5 year old Chihuahua and I made a long distance move. It was a 27 hour car ride (stopped at my sister's in the middle) to the new place. We have been here for 4 days, and all of a sudden Lola (Chihuahua) pooped on the rug in front of the door yesterday right after I walked her. (like 2 mins after we got back). Then a few hours later she did it again in the bathroom right after I had walked her again. Once again I woke up in the middle of the night and she had pooped all over right in front of my roommate's door.

(Literally like 5 small piles in front of his door). All of the times that she has done this she has walked right past her puppy pad. The third time I had laid out two. She is trained to go on those if she has to go before I take her out. I have no idea what to do, she has never had accidents before. I am unsure if she is acting out due to stress or if she does not like my roommate. (My roommate is male and it takes her a long while to get comfortable with men. She prefers women.) Any suggestions on things I can try?

She is marking her new territory. She is anxious about the new house. The first day you moved in you would have done better to keep her in her crate, then introduce her to one new room per day. The world's a big place for a tiny dog.

But that's the past. Try keeping her confined in one room until she's using the pads only again, then letting her out to the main area but shutting all other doors. Re-introduce her to each room slowly.
Good luck.
