I have a 15 week old female chihuahua and i cant for the life of me figure out how to potty train her. She was doing good and now all of a sudden she is going every where. This is a huge deal and i can't handle it cause i dont know what im doing. She does go on the training pads but not always. How can i stop this? I usually put her nose by it and tell her no and tap her then put her where she is supposed to go but it hasnt worked!! AHHHAnswer Question

I agree with the use of puppy pads. I think they are a waste of time and money. You are trying to teach your pup to go OUTSIDE and allowing the pup to use the pads indoors is only confusing your pup. Make sure you take your pup out often. Don't leave food/water down all the time, this will only make your pup go potty around the clock. Feed on a schedule, and you pup will potty on schedule.
Crate training will also be a huge help when trying to potty train. Praise your pup with a treat when the pup goes potty outside. If you take the pup out, and he/she doesn't go then bring the pup back out every 10-15 mins until he/she does go.
