How can i get my dog to calm down?

she is a 12 year old english setter and everytime she is left alone she starts to bark. she just started this and i have not experienced this with any of the other six english setters i have at my dads house. she has food and water, so it cant be that, and she doesnt have to go to the bathroom because she will act like this after going outside.
