  1. Dog is still having accidents at 8 months so I’m going around with her leashed to me. This way I can monitor her at all times. She isn’t happy with the situation.

      Hmm........Well, it might sound a bit extreme, but you could try keeping her in crate. then take her directly from crate to outside till she goes potty outside, then put her back in crate, rinse and repeat until she gets the idea.

      When she pottys outside successfully ,praise her and give a dog treat every time......It might take awhile, but this method can work for stubborn dogs if you are persistent.

      Just to let you know, before I became disabled due to MI, I worked with dogs professionally.

      Thanks for your help, it’s much appreciated. What I did yesterday afternoon and today that seemed to help was to leash her to my side and always have her in sight and she didn’t try to go inside. I’m hoping to avoid crating her for too long bc she’s a super energetic girl. :( we had to crate her a ton after heart surgery while she was healing and she got so stir crazy. Does this seem a good idea? I will try treating her when she’s outside peeing now.

      If your plan (leashing her to you) seems to be working so far, I think it's a good idea.....Yes, give her a treat if she potties outside, that will reinforce the idea that going potty outside is a good thing.
