Unhappy please help potty training

My chihuahua is 1yr old and isn't completly potty trained. I live in an area where I can't take her outside sometimes so I have to potty train her with pads. She sometimes pees on the pad then next time she pees she goes elsewhere on the carpet, and when she tries to go poop she walks on the pad then walks off in the process. I work 10 hour days so its hard to train her. Please help with any advice my carpet is ruined now beyond repair and my house reaks of dog p*** lol

There are multiple ways to accomplish this and everyone has their own method.
I can tell you what has worked for me with several different dogs. I am a firm believer in crate training! And one year old is not to old to start! I trained Angel both indoors and out. The way I did it was, in the crate unless being supervised 100%!! Not one second out of site!! If you are not interacting with the dog with play, training, cuddling, whatever, it's in the crate! When taken out of the crate it's straight to the pee pad or outside. If successful, meaning peed or pooped, then it's party time! I clapped my hands, smiled, praised, praised, praised! If not successful, it should be back in the crate, but, here's where you can be flexible. At this point you can keep him occupied, BUT, keep an OPEN - he will be ready to do something at this point!

The basic idea is, he should be in the crate at all times when not being "hands on" with him. And the crate should be small enough so that he can't pee in one corner and sleep in another!

Another method that works is tethering. Potty training is harder on us than on them! It is so hard to bring ourselves to confine these oh so cute cuddly little creatures! Lol. But ya gotta be strong! The short time it takes to get them trained is nothing compared to the frustration you could face for years to come!
