YES! I know my dog will be a great dog too.. Just gotta get past this puppy stage. How did you show your dog after it made an accident in your house did you put them in the cage or time out or something? lol. Im not sure if she realizes that she is doing a bad thing even though I say No! Thats bad! She just sits there and looks at me.
I think she's too young to know exactly what you want. You seem to have a lot on your plate right now and a puppy probably wasn't a good idea. But now that it is done, patience is crucial, for you as we'll as for the well being of your puppy. I wouldn't punish her for pooping. It's a natural thing to do. She won't understand that it is wrong. I'm no expert but here are my suggestions:
Take her out to potty every 1/2 hour during the day (increasing time in between gradually every 2 days)
At night she needs to go out at least twice during the night (set the alarm)
When she potties inside just tell her "no, potty outside" very firmly and take her out right away
Keep making a big deal about potty outside (she will eventually get it)
Make sure she is exercised (with play) right before putting her in the crate but take her out to potty first
Keep the crate close to you at night (gds need to be with us) and ignore the crying ( she will learn that it doesn't work)
Reward her for being in the crate
And of course have the vet check her out.
Above all, have patience. She is still a baby!
Btw- IMHO using a shock collar on such a young puppy is just cruel. Please stop using it.
Good luck. I'm sure she will come around soon. Just be consistent and patient.
