Any tricks for teaching 11 week old to wiz in just one area?

My 11 week old Shorgi pees at least two or three times whenever I take her out, and the area of the back yard she hits is fairly large. Should I maybe leash her and kind of hold her at my chosen ground zero? Will she pick a spot of her own to concentrate on after a while?

We taught our lab and our golden to "Go" on command. When we took them out (on the leash) we took them to the area that we wanted them to go. I would stand in 1 area and with them on the leash , not move until they went. When they started to pee or poop, I would say "Mischt" (in German it means manure) and everytime they would go I would say the same thing. After awhile, I would just have to say "Mischt" in any area and they would go "On command". It was nice when we traveled and stopped for a stretch, all we had to say was Mischt and they would go. Hope this helps you.

My doggies never go in the same spot...

They do make "pheromone sticks" that emit tasty pheromones (similar to those found in dog pee) and are attractive for peeing on... I don't know if they work...
