What worked for me was for a while Lacey was kept in a very small area. She wasn't aloud in the rest of the house until she had the potty issue down. Slowly by slowly she had more rooms she could go into to. She is trained to use the Wizdog and no matter where she is in the house she will go running to use it. Took a long time but she is fully housed trained. I can now get new carpet!!! For the first two months every 20 to 30 minutes I would put her on her pad...she got the hint real fast and she would pee so she could play and be with us. Sounds like a lot but in the long run it is well worth it.

you can try putting a wee wee pad in all the rooms. and then you can slowly move the wee wee pad from room A to the next room. and then eventually you'll have only 1 pad in the whole house.
OR you can just keep an eye on your dog. and when it looks like she needs to pee...distract her and make her go to the room with the wee wee pad.
training a big dog to go outside...is TOTALLY different from training a little dog--who's used to peeing inside.
i trained gruffi when he was 5 weeks old...and it took me 2 weeks to completely potty train him. ----and i never used a crate.
its all about consistancy. and if summer is getting confused when she's in another room---you're giving her too much freedom.
good luck!! and it's all about consistancy and patience.
