Thank You!! She is a great puppy.
It is difficult watching a puppy every minute. When you need a break or have something you need to do, put her back in crate. She needs lots of sleep right now anyways so you both get a break.

It doesn't take long to learn what works best for your pup, and what their routine is. I found my girl needs to do ATLEAST two pee's while outside, or else she'll need to go again in 10 minutes, usually in the middle of the floor

Don't scold your puppy for relieving herself inside. Its not her fault. She doesn't go "hehe this will be funny, I'm going to make the human clean up my urine!!". They have small bladders and are still learning where to go potty. And often their mummies and daddies don't always pick up on their signs immediately. If you scold her for this, it will not stop her, but instead make her relieve herself in secret places.. Under the bed, behind couches etc. It makes her fearful of relieving herself and makes the whole process a lot slower.

If she relieves herself inside, simply remove her (put her in another room or crate her) while you clean the accident quietly. Then take her outside for potty!

When she does potty, get really excited! Praise her highly for being a good girl and doing it in the right place. It won't take long for her to realize outside = mummy and daddy get super excited! Inside = nothing. I even add a verbal cue of "Do your business" when she squats. She always comes charging down the yard at me after she does potty, all proud of herself
This is how we did it. Pup was all but potty trained in a couple weeks. She had a few accidents but was giving cue's that she had to go. Her accidents were our fault for not picking up on the cue. I have also read to not let her see you cleaning up her mess. I can't recall if we did that or not.

20+ years ago we used the nose rub technique, all that did was make the dog evacuate in private. She wouldn't let us see her when she went potty. Believe me, that made things difficult later on.

We used a stern NO if we caught her in the act, beyond that, they have no idea what they did and it does no good. They only know your upset.

Terrible advice... sorry but you should not do that. You firmly tell them NO then go outside... once potty is done praise them.

Yeah it is pretty young, but it doesn't mean the pup will not be okay on its own with proper care and love.

Keep eyes on puppy at all times so they cannot have accidents you don't see. Lots of trips outside and tons of praise when they potty outside.
