Default At my wits end

I have a chiuahaha that is about 4 months old now and she won't stop peeping or pooping in the house.
I will have her outside all day long and as soon as we come in she pees or poops.
All in random places.
We praise her when she does go outside and take her out regularly.
She also has Matt's inside which she doesn't use.
I can't have anything on the floor such as rugs or she owes on it to hide that she peed.
I am almost ready to give up as I can't keep cleaning and moping as I work and have a baby.
She will not pee on her kennel though.
Thank you.
Tried to post in training but it won't let me.

first does she have a UTI? (Urinary Tract Infection)

There seems to be two things going on here. When she is out all day she can go whenever and wherever so she isn't learning to only go outside. Have you tried crate training?

Yes the crate is the only place she doesn't go.
No infection either.

I agree. Possibly she has a UTI, but also you have the very difficult situation of a baby, working, and a puppy! Like Christie said, outside all day she can go anywhere/anytime--inside there are rules and regulations; it's confusing. As hard as it will be, you need to go back to the beginning of potty training and be totally diligent. Unless there is a medical reason she shouldn't be peeing/pooing without reasons i.e.. after eating/drinking, after waking, etc. I would put her in a pen with a bed, puppy pad, water, only feed her 2-3 set times a day (I don't free feed). Only let her out if you can watch her. Praise and treat for going on pad and back in the pen if you can't watch her or she has an accident. Don't punish though--you don't want her to think the pen is punishment. The biggest deal is to thoroughly clean any accidents with enzyme cleaner that can be purchased at a pet store. I personally don't think because it says good for pet stains it works. It has to be an enzyme cleaner. Animals have keen sense of smell, and if she can smell where she's gone before, she may go back to that spot. Google pet potty training for other methods or ideas that may help. Good luck!

Even my boy I adopted as an older puppy, at least 6 months, spent most of his time in a pen the first 5-6 months. I had a newly 2-year-old child when I adopted him, and the separation was needed for everyone's benefit. We still have a gate up and close doors when he is home alone so he doesn't wander too far from his Piddle Place. This summer he is mature enough that I can take him outside just 4 times/day, which is nice.

This is still a baby. SHe's never been house trained, obviously. Get a pen/exercise pen and put down a washable pad to cover the bottom. Or you could just use disposable pee pads or newspaper. Her bed/kennel will go in there, along with her bowl of water and some chew toys/toy. If she 'goes' outside he can have 1/2 hour of freedom with you watching him. Please don't free feed. At 4 months she should be on 3 meals until 6 months. A bedtime treat will help her go thru the night. She will not be able to make a mistake and ruin your things if she is in there. She must 'earn' the right to be free. Praise like mad when you see her go in there or outside. Tell her 'good pee', or good poop'. They will learn what the words mean in time. I can tell my chi's to 'go potty' and they know! Saves a lot of time sometimes.
