You crate training when this baby is in the house?
What is crate training (why put my puppy in a cage?)
And you are outside with her when she goes out, right? Because you just take her to the dirt area, and when she poops/pees you have a praise party, then take her back in the house.
The only way we train our puppies is being right there beside them. Need to have good timing for the praise so it's clear what we want, where we want it, and then they learn when we TEACH.
Have you found any great puppy classes yet? So much fun and a huge help for everything. You looked in our FAQ sections yet?

Good luck! And remember we only add a puppy to our home when we know we have all those free hours a day to be with them, teach them, interact with them, socialize and play with them. When we are with them all those hours then they learn because we've been there to help.
