My family had the same problem with our Yorkshire terrier when he was a puppy. It will take some time to house break her, but to make it easy, make sure that you introduce her to grass as many times a day or week as you can until she goes, trust me by the time she understands the meaning of going in the grass, she'll let you know every time. Good luck!

You need to buy a crate. I didn't want to fork the money out to get one, and I felt bad putting my dog in there, but I was tired of pee and poop on my carpet so I gave in. Getting that crate was the best decision of my life. I would wait for my dog to eat and/or drink and right after she was done, I would put her in the crate. She won't pee in the crate because she space is too small, and dogs won't pee where they lay down. I would wait a few hours and then take her outside. At the beginning, she obviously didn't know what to do, she would go out and try to play and goof off so I would take her back in immediately and put her back in the crate. I would wait 15 minutes or so and then take her back out. Eventually when you do this process over and over, your dog will HAVE to go potty and will go as soon as you let him hold still long enough to go. When he finally does go outside, praise him like there's no tomorrow! I usually did a command too that my dog could associate with going potty so that she wouldn't want to play outside and she know it meant "business time." I would keep repeating this whole process. When she finally started going to the door herself, I gave her more freedom inside the house. When she would make a mistake (because that WILL happen), I would put her in the crate calmly (make sure you NEVER use the crate as punishment), and I would repeat the process again. It took me about three weeks, but I finally got her potty trained. I'll post this great website that I read and it really did help me. I thought my dog was going to be impossible to train, but after reading this site and buying the crate, it was easy! Good luck!
