|I do think smaller breeds simply have trouble learning how to hold it more than larger breeds. Of course, not every dog is the same in every breed..
When you take her out, walk with her a little bit, have her play a game of fetch, etc..get her little legs moving, which translates to things inside moving, thus she will 'have to go' as opposed to piddling soon as you come inside..
As others have said, give her time..
If she doe snot potty outside after about fifteen minutes, bring her in, place her in her crate, and take her out again in about 15 minutes more. The crate can be a wonderful potty-training tool, as dogs are by nature not liking to soil where they sleep.
And another thought is many toy breeds simply do not develop bladder control until around 4 months of age or so, so just be patient..
Keep doing what you are doing, stay consistant, and she will catch on..
GL, and enjoy those puppy months..they go by sooo quickly!!!!
