I need to clarify. Its not a face rub, and this is only when I catch her in the act or immediately afterword such as she is just walking away. I "GENTLY" place her nose in the puddle and quickly take her to the outside spot. I do not do this for found puddles. I have done this with all my dogs and was told to do this by several trainers in the past. Nothing very physical, just scoop her up, put nose towards puddle so she sniffs, the verbal "no, outside" - then outside to the spot. There is a big reward if she goes again outside.
She has never left puddles in hidden corners - never found any yet
No accidents yesterday or today so far and I am starting to get minor verbal clues.
She also slept through the night in her crate. So for 10 weeks old I think she is doing great - much faster than many of my other dogs.
As for using the crate during the day, per my trainer it denies the pup the instant ability to bond and socialize in the house as events happen, such as vacuuming, cleaning. people walking buy, etc. It gives time to correct bad behaviors such and the pant leg grab, and working on the bit inhibiting work. Emma is my new BFF and I want this to be a good learning time for her. The house is her home, not a crate to sit in and watch the world go by and only to be let out to play when I want to.
This morning as I was getting my coffee I kicked one of her balls - that led to about 20 minutes of fetch - then tug of war with her rope. Coffee got cold, but we had a lot of fun. Right now she is bonding with my daughter (spur of the moment fun attack for Emma). If she was in her crate she could not do that. I would rather risk a puddle then deny her the spontaneous fun.
However I appreciate all the comments and thoughts. That's how I learn. I take the comments and do a search. There is a huge amount of great information here. Thanks.
I did get a bell set up on the door this morning, so we will see if this works. I placed it low where I have seen her sometimes paw the door as I let her out. As soon as I put in it she thought it was a tug toy. Took a bit to convince her it was not. I have been ringing it and saying "outside" every time I open the door to let her out, but so far all I see out of her is a puzzled look. Hope I am doing this correctly.
Thanks again folks
