What is this strange phenomenon?

What is this strange phenomenon happening with ostensibly house trained dogs soiling the house? I just threw out three area rugs that my 4 yr. old Beagle has ruined by pooing and peeing on them, even to the point of blackening the hardwood floor beneath. The very FIRST thing my son's dog does when she visits is crap and pee right in front of us! No shame....

My question is threefold: I called to have my fave meditation rug cleaned professionally because I have to have at least one room to meditate in and it cannot be soiled in any way. When speaking with the professional, he said that since 2007 there has been a surge of this problem-dogs all of a sudden soiling the house. He called local veterinarians and they all said it was epidemic. Has anyone had similar problems, and if so why is it happening, are the animals sensing the volatility of the economy in their owners, is it something less obscure? Also, what can be used to get the black out of my 1947 hardwood floors? (I reluctantly gave Ginger away, could not keep up with the germs and cleaning poo while doing chemotherapy )
