That's because she has access to it. Dogs instinctively don't like to be around their own mess. She'll try to "clean it up." While she's a puppy and working on house training you need to be there every time she goes potty. Every. Single. Time. It needs to be outside, and you need to throw a big party with little treats. Every single time she has the opportunity to potty in the house, it confuses her more and teaches her that it's ok to go in the house.

If you're gone longer than she can realistically "hold it", hire a dogwalker or get a friend or family member to come take her out.

Would you let a baby wallow in a poopy diaper just because you had other things to do? No, you'd drop what you were doing and change the diaper because when you have a baby or a puppy, that young baby is temporarily the #1 most important priority.
