here is an age appropriate schedule for taking out - a dogs age in months +1 = how long they can hold it ...example 1 month old + 1 = 2 hours so pup needs out every 2 hours ...this means getting up through out the night to take pup outside.
Also dogs should not be removed from their mother and littermates before 8 weeks of age unless its a dangerous situation for them.
Also there are attractants you can buy at pet store to sprinkle on pee pads to attract to pee on it...just put a few drops on pee pad - or better wipe any accident she/he has with pad and then leave it for her so she learns where to go potty.many pups don't always go on pads they would rather play with the pad and chew it up ...at her age its normal...
At night for now I would keep pup in bathroom or a crate with pee pads if you can't get up at night and when your are unable to take him/her out.you may need to cover whole floor with the pads or newspapers til she is older .....
but to get you started :
Here are a few suggestions..
1) BE CONSISTENT with what you do - that means everyone in your household.
2) put her on a feeding and water schedule - no food or water after say 7 pm so she has time to empty her bladder and to have a bowel movement after eating dinner - DO NOT FREE FEED HER!!! Meaning do not leave food out all the time !! You won't know when she needs to go ...feed her 2 times a day - breakfast and dinner.(THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO A PUP SO YOUNG but may help as it gets older!!)a pup this young should eat at least 3 or 4 times a day! Check with vet as to how much to feed pup.Use a good quality puppy feed made for large breeds - large breed dogs need a different diet than smaller breeds -to much protien will cause issues and make grow to fast - so be sure to use a large breed puppy food.
3) take her out within 30 minutes of eating and drinking and also within 20 to 30 minutes of playing - remember to be patient !! And right after waking up.You may have to stay outside and "out wait her" she will go eventually !!! If you have a yard and your putting her alone that won't help ...you need to go with her so you can praise her AS SHE GOES POTTY outside!! And have a treat ready to give as soon as she is done (a lil piece of cheese or meat that she ONLY gets for pottying outside)!!!! Make a big deal over her doing it outside - have a party for her lol...so she associates great things with going outside.
4) while in the house if possible keep her either on a leash with you or in a crate if she won't be supervised...otherwise she can 'sneak off" and potty when your not looking.Crate training is a HUGE help with potty training a pup or even an adult dog .if you don't have a crate maybe you can keep her in a bathroom or use a dog playpen in your kitchen - just make it so she cannot be unsupervised and have any accidents ..IF YOU SEE HER START TO GO POTTY IN HOUSE - clap your hands to startle her (this will hopefully stop her mid stream and grab her up (nicely) and go outside fast !! Reward her for finishing outside...
5) remember if she has an accident it is NOT her fault its yours for not watching her and catching her before going...accidents may happen but do NOT punish her or you may only teach her not to go in front of you .she doesn't know any better so its up to you to watch her body language (we all know what the "pee pee walk " looks like lol....(sniffing around etc)and the feeding and water schedule will help you with knowing when she may need to go....
6)use an enzymatic cleaner to clean any areas she has pee'd or poo'd on .Regular cleaners will not get rid of the smell .You may think its clean but she can still smell where she goes potty so be sure to clean thoroughly with the enzyme cleaner (get at local pet shop or feed store)
7) teach her to ring a bell that hangs from the door when she needs out by hang it with string from doorknob and dabbing a lil peanut butter on it (just a very little amount to get her interest) and when she nudges it with her nose to get the peanut butter it will ring and immediately take her out (everytime she rings it no matter what ) and say ok lets go potty!!! Treat her only if she does some pottying outside....you may end up going out a lot while she learns.
8) have PATIENCE !!
9) be CONSISTENT !!
10 ) be even more patient and consistent !!!!
She will get it eventually !!
