Check to be sure the stuff you're spraying on the pads is not a deodorizer, but is actually designed to attract the puppy to the pad. If she was confined in the pet store before you bought her, she has likely learned the behaviors of eating and drinking her own waste--better to get rid of it than lie around in it. Pet store puppies are more challenging to housebreak because they've become somewhat desensitized to their own waste, first by being kept in puppy mill conditions, and then being confined with their waste at a pet store. Best advice...put her on a regular schedule and don't give her the chance to make a mistake. Every mistake sets the process back. Persistence, vigilance, patience. Good luck.

PS--check to make sure any food you're considering switching to hasn't been recalled.

Were you feeding any of the foods that were recalled? It's been hypothesized that adulterants in the recalled foods crystallize in urine.
