Okay so my puppy is about 8-9 weeks old. when she was able to use the bathroom on her own she peed on her puppy pad no problem. I would open her crate door and it was the first thing she did. but now I will sit with her near her pad so she would use it but she won't. I'll be sitting there for a couple minutes. (3-6 min or more) and nothing, but the second i get up and move away she follows and pees a step away from the pad. and i think she knows what she did is wrong because she runs to her bed after. If anyone has any tips or trick i would really apreciate it. thank you :)
I'm not sure if anyone would have an answer, but I thought why not give it a shot?

I don't think that she thinks it's wrong. I believe the thinks that you were mad at her but she didn't know why. Your puppy needs more training. One way to do this is to show her where to pee. When she pees where she shouldn't, quickly get her and show her that you are mad, then shortly after show her where she should pee and be happy about it. Eventually she will get the clue that peeing there is the right choice. Also praise her when she pees in the right place. Don't punish without showing the right thing to do. And don't hit the dog please it doesn't help, just makes you and the dog more violent and nervous.1
