wee pads to outside transition

hi, my puppy finally got all her shots and i've been taking her outside to learn leash walking. i've been timing her potty times so that she starts going outside (transitioning from wee pads), but have been unsuccessful - she simply holds it and is eager to come back inside to use her wee pads. this is not good, because her anxiety to get back is damaging our loose leash training. how should i go about this? should i pick her up when i see her go to her wee pad and take her outside? or will she just eventually go? iv'e sat with her also, but she just holds it. any advice? thanks everyone.

Have you tried taking the wee pads outside with you? If you can get her to use them outside (and praise her for doing so), then, over a period of weeks, you can cut one in half and then 1/4, making them smaller and smaller until she's weeing on the ground.
