12 weeks is still very baby, with minimal bladder control.

Could be something scared her in the garden, could be the weather was not what she wanted. Be patient, and be diligent with your taking out and rewarding. Go out with her every time and make sure she has high-value rewards after she has obliged. Don't be tempted to hurry her, don't stare at her, don't fuss and sigh, just wait quietly.


Be grateful she isn't a human baby - they take aaaages :lol:
A dog is never bad or naughty - it is simply being a dog

Also, when she comes back in, take her straight out again and see if she'll go (this might be better if she's on a lead so you can lead her back in and take her out before she has time to go on the carpet). Sometimes dogs do 'double wees'.
