I don't think it will make things more difficult. I think you should cover the whole floor in newspaper so she has no option but to pee on the paper. You will then figure out where she likes to go the most and can start to leave areas of the bathroom uncovered except her favourite pee spot(s). She will learn that she is supposed to pee on newspaper and then when you take her outside you can put newspaper down on the ground to help her understand where to go. Does that make sense?

I agree with trying an exercise pen or baby gates. That's what we did with our three--we baby-gated the kitchen (which has two entrances) and left them there while we were gone. Only problem was we have very agile dogs and the BC mix enjoyed popping herself over the gates to say hello when you came in (she stayed in while we were gone, amazingly).

How do you know she stayed in? Maybe she was sleeping on your couch until she heard the car and then jumped back in LOL

She's actually peeing/etc outside about 80-85% of the time now, in fact... she already is beginning to "indicate" to me that she needs to hit the outside... she sits by the door and puts her ears down and looks at me... soon as I open the door, she goes right down, does her business, and comes back up...

However, there are 4-5 hour periods during the day (Mon-Fri) where she has to be penned up in the bathroom, and she is good about using the paper in there too... but I want to eventually break that habit so she is always JUST going outside... any recommendations or will this cease as she grows?

She still whines and barks alot when locked up too... is that going to end?

When she's about 5 months old she'll be able to hold it in for 4 to 5 hours.
