    It could be the new environment. It could be that she was never house trained. Either way, you have to train her. You MUST keep an eye on her. You must take her outside once an hour to let her pee and whatever else. ALWAYS praise her heavily when she does what she is supposed.

    NEVER scold her for doing it wroing. She always does it wrong because she hasn't been taught what is right. When you scold her the lesson she learns is "Never pee or potty in front of humans" so she will start going off somewhere in the house away from you and do her business. If you catch her in the act, stop her and take her outisde. Don't fuss at her ... "no, no, no" in a calm voice is enough talking. Don't just "put her into the garden", go out with her and stay with her until she does her business so you can praise and reward when she does good.

    I suggest getting her a crate and letting her sleep in your bedroom. In the wild she would never be alone at that age. She is not mature enough to handle being left alone and it causes her to not sleep well. Also if she is in the bedroom, you can hear her stirring in the middle of the night and take her outside.

    Everytime she pees or potties in the house you MUST get the proper chemicals and remove any odor left as it tells her this is a place to do it.

    Crates are really marvelous devices. They help us and our animals in so many ways.

    Bill is right about it being hard work and there will be occasions when it seems that she will never get it sorted out, but then for most dogs they seem to understand what is required and all the hard work pays off.

    Sometimes it takes more energy than a person has, though. Puppies especially are high maintenance.

    It can feel like that, but we find the energy to do it and it pays off in the end, just as it does when you are raising children. The easy option leads to a lot more work long term.

    I have always had doggie doors. I know it's cheating.... but it works great, they learn so much faster and if you can't get to the door in time, it's okay, they have their own way out. It took about three days for most of my dogs. The puppies a little longer since it was a great toy.....in and out, in and out, etc..... but I have found puppies/dogs learn so much faster when it's fun.

    Just think.... down the line it'll be stories about " do you remember the potty training time?..... My family has several and you really can laugh about it later.
    women and cats will do as they please,
    men and dogs need to get used to the fact.

    To get the successfull Potty traing you need to follow -

    1. Don’t force him and wait for the right moment
    2. Try to make your dog friendly to use potty training dog doorbells in the required situations.
    3. Make a place fixed for his potty training
    4. You can also keep crate training into action using a dog crate in which he feels ease.
    5. Make a suitable schedule of per 15 minutes
    6. Be friendly with your pup and associate him to complete his task outside
    7. When you are not at home, restrict him to a certain area using a Puppy Pee or Potty Training Pads
