Your pup is still really young, and sometimes certain dogs will be harder to potty train than others. I would be consistant. Mack sure that you are watching her constantly. Tell her "no" when she poops in the wrong place, and then carry her to the correct place and praise her. When she goes to the bathroom (both poop and pee) in the correct place, praise her. Give her a ton of praise (even make up a "poopy dance" if it works!). Dogs live to please, and she will learn that she would rather make you happy than to be told no.

If she keeps returning to the spot under the table--make sure you have cleaned it well (Nature's Miracle works well)--and then I would try blocking that space so she can't access it--at least it could break that spot, and maybe she will give better signs to you that she needs to go!

If you scold your puppy too sternly, "NO!" or any other way that makes her nervous, fearful, uneasy, she will be more apt to hide it from you. She doesn't know where to go. She's guessing. If she gets punished, she will be afraid to go in front of you and she can think that it is unsafe to go to the bathroom. Period. You need to prevent accidents. It's up to you, not your puppy. Supervise her literally every second that she is loose in the house. Take her out more frequently. Go with her and praise her and give her a high value treat, something really yummy when she goes outside....immediately when she's finished. There is a sticky either in the puppy forum or the training forum with good tips for potty training. If you do catch her in the act, do nothing more than intererupt her with a "woops" kind of word....a little disappointment but not so much to frighten her bewilder her. She doesn't know yet. You must prevent accidents and reward highly her successes. The more times she is reinforced with a fantastic treat and your praise, immediately upon finishing, the quicker she'll stop guessing where she's suppose to go.

Besides cleaning the area really good under the table why not block it off so she can't go hide under there at all--maybe with some cardboard or with some pillows.

No, it doesn't work. He continues to pee in the "wrong" place because you allow it to happen.

I don't know if this is the right thing to do but I would say a not too stern 'out' or 'do want to go out!'and pick Minnie up as soon as I noticed that she was about to or had started to go... take her outside and wait until she weed or pooped and then praised her like crazy. If I was too late I would just clean it up and say nothing. I was told that saying no or out or whatever was sufficient to stop a pup in mid action and therefore giving you time to get them to the proper place. Minnie was probably pretty much house trained by 4 months, give or take the odd little accident. For the first few weeks though....she needed to go like every 10 minutes (no exaggeration!) non of this once an hour stuff! by that time there would have been puddles everywhere tee hee. Thank goodness there was vast improvement with age.
