If it's a potty issue, then just amp up your potty training. I don't know what method you're using, but I think it can be done in a few days.
Here's my method, or, what I remember of it. Dog hangs out inside with me, doing whatever. When I see them start to pee/poop, I run towards them like "whoa whoa whoa!" then pick them up and take them outside where I want them to do it, and when they do, praise.
It's simple but it works, and it does not take long.

crate train her. when she's not in the crate you have to watch her closely.
take her out often when not crated. i use to take my pup out every 15 minutes,
every 15 minutes became every 1/2 hour, every 1/2 hour became every hour
and so on. how are you going to potty train her if she's on the patio?

|Mary Beth||I suggest you get a crate, put your pup on a schedule and taker her out at regular times to potty and also after playtime, 1/2 hr. or so after eating. Whenever you see her circling and sniffing the ground - that can be a sign she needs to go. That way she will learn. If you are not sure how to do it, I suggest you read The Monks of New Skete "The Art of Raising a Puppy", Drs. Foster & Smith has an article on their website Housetraining Your New Puppy and also searching thru the threads on the Puppy Place forum.|

|DaniFani||The puppy is still a little young. But eventually you can teach it "out" or "spot." Both my dogs know these commands. "Out" means get out of this room, and they usually go just outside the door and lay outside the door. We taught this command because we have a young child that I have to change diapers, or we play toys on the floor, and I don't want the dogs walking over everything. I taught it by giving the command, taking the dog by the collar, and putting them "out." Then praise. It only took a few times and my dogs get it....the other thing you could do is put a dog bed on the patio and have it be a "spot." I give either of my dogs the "spot" command and they go to their beds. I thought that much like I taught the "out" command. Only I gave treats for going to the bed, and once it was clear that they knew the command they got a correction for leaving the spot without my release command. But, again...your dog is really really young. I taught these to my dogs about your dog's age, but never expected a good "stay" until they were a bit older. And didn't correct them until they were six/seven months. And light corrections at that. Now my dogs will stay in their spots no matter who comes in the door (cable guy, stranger, friend) until I give them the release command. Hope that helps. :-)|

Get a baby gate if you don't want her to enter a room and don't want to close the door.
You can also do "barrier training" but I would not expect a young pup to obey that all of the time. Here's some info on that:
