    Housebreaking a puppy is sometimes so easy and other times seems to take forever. I agree that it may be a UTI especially since you have a female pup. If I may suggest one thing, it would be to not yell no as she starts to go in the house. In the real estate business they say it is all about location, location, location...same with house training. Your pup will not be able to differentiate between being scolded for the location and the act of relieving herself. If scolded, the pup may hide to urinate rather than learning over time to tell you she needs to go out. If she has an accident, and that's all it is, say nothing, clean up the urine, take the pup and paper towels outside and set the paper towels on the ground. Take her over to the paper towels and praise her for sniffing them. Give her a treat if you like. Pretty soon, she'll get the message.

    Just my thoughts...

    If pup is not crate trained suggest you get her used to the crate. Crate training is your friend for the life of the dog. It will help with house breaking and is critical when you have to leave a young dog alone for a period of time.

    We found that if we monitored access to water and encouraged them go outside (and used our word for airing) within a few minutes of either eating or drinking, they learned very quickly not to go inside. We keep the crate near us at night and pup and I would go out once or twice during night. In the morning they were shown the door before food was offered until they had the task mastered. When mistakes were made the blame fell to the humans as we were invariably the ones who had drifted from the program.

    If your not working with her or watching her crate her, when you catch her starting to go pick her up stick her nose in it and tell no in a calm voice and take her out side.Paper training works great!

    My chocolate lab female had an inverted vulva as a pup and that was causing a irritation. It was after the first heat cycle before she finally quit tinkling in the house.
