Congrads on the new additon. If she's peeing a lot you need to rule out a UTI first. If she's healthy, your jsut gonna have to get with her on it. A lot of pups won't take the pads. But if you want to try with her, as soon as you see her going, grab her up and put her on it. then praise like that devil when she's going on it. If that doesn't work, just grab her up when you see her going and head out with her. Again praise praise praise when she does go. But honestly that's how your gonna have to do it. I've got a 15 month old so I know it's hard. Also try feeding her at a set time every day like in the mroing and in the vening, then you know with in an hour she's prob gonna have to go so you can kind of plan it that way., Also pick her water up about an hour or so before you put her in her crate at night, that'll help with the middle of the night accidents.

What food is your puppy on? Certain low-end brands of food will cause a dog to eliminate a lot more.

Just remember it this way, a young puppy is a lot like a young toddler, they are gonna have to go a lot. A rule of thumb is, puppy eats, puppy goes out, puppy drinks, puppy goes out, Puppy wakes up from a nap, puppy goes out. The times she's just up and playing try to keep it about every 2 hours or so.

Heart N Sole has it right that certain dog foods will make a dog go more, especially those high in fat. BUT being she is a puppy and gorwing and needing all the extra nutrients a puppy chow provides, I wouldn't cut her off of it. Now when she's a year old or more, you can start looking into lower fat foods and such, this young though, I wouldn't personally.

Here are some good links that offer some great advice:

Welcome! Boxers are great dogs! Casper is part Boxer. And if his breed has anything to do with it... they are hard to potty train! I didnt think Casper was ever going to learn it took me a year and I had him since he was 6 mths. I crate trained him from the moment i got him. He never used the crate unless he was sick.

The first week we had him he was sick sick. He had a virus called Giardia, and he pooped all the time. Make sure there is no blood or mucus in her stools and that they are pretty solid not runny. Her food could have something to do with it as well.

Casper was crated at night for a long time before he was allowed to roam the house. We let him out in the mornings, and watched him like a hawk during the day. When he was about to go in the house, we quickly took him outside and praised him when he went outside. He eventually learned. We taught him to jump up on the back door when he has to go out.

Fluff is 6 mths old now and we almost have training down pat. he is no longer crated at night, but only sometimes has accidents. He never goes in the house during the day now, hes learned by watching Casper what to do when he wants out.
