The more time you spend with your new puppy or dog the faster she will learn not to urinate or defecate in the house. A puppy is just a baby and must learn what you expect of her. An older dog may have to learn new habits depending upon how she was housed and trained before.
What Doesn't Work
You have probably heard someone say "If the puppy makes a mistake rub his nose in it " or "Drag him to the site of the disaster point at the puddle or pile and scold him." Don't use either of those methods. They don't work. All you'll do is frighten the pup and make a mess for yourself to clean up. A dog is so upset when he is being scolded that he can't even begin to understand exactly what you're angry about.
