Your thread (although so long ago) is exactly what I am dealing with. Prada (my newly adopted 4mo old chi) does just the same thing. She will go anywhere but the pad, unless I catch her mid-stream and move her to the pad.
Did you ever get this resolved? And, if so, please share HOW you became successful.
Thanks sooo much in advance!

Well, I got a pee pad holder, thinking that might help her stay on the pad when she's pooping. Well, she seriously refuses to go on it. I can tell she she has to go, and I put her on it. She will keep just walking off, then pee 1-2 feet away from it. I don't get it! She won't poop on it either, unless we catch her mid poop and put her on it.
Is she too young to potty train? Or can 8 week old puppy's still get it? I want her potty trained, but don't know what else to do! Heeeelp!
