I just got a 9 week old teddy bear puppy (bichon/shitzu mix). I'm trying to potty train her but she is afraid of EVERY noise she hears outside. I mean every noise...car doors closing, birds chirping, leaves rustling, etc. Other dogs barking sends her running for the house.

I don't know how to get her past these fears. Taking her outside to potty can take up to an hour at a time because she gets scared and stops sniffing. I know she needs to go because I catch her trying to go in the house. If she's in the middle of her business and hears a noise she'll just stop and run to hide.
