1-y-o dog is weewee pad trained, want to outside train her

Hi!

I'm fostering an abandoned dog. She's about 1 yrs old. She's a medium-sized 40lb dog who was clearly trained to wee and poo on wee-wee pads. She's very good and consistent with going on the pads.

However, being a dog, she does sometimes miss or she accidentally steps in her poo and tracks it around etc, so I'm not ok leaving her alone (I work from home, and I'm actually co-fostering her w/a neighbor -- a crate is forthcoming).

So here's the problem with re-training her:
-No matter how long we're outside (2.5 hours is the longest so far), she will not pee or poo...but will do so as soon as she gets back home off leash (she immediately runs to the pad).
- We live on the 6th floor of an apartment building. So the concept of IMMEDIATELY bringing her outside after she wee-wees is a bit harder, b/c there's a hallway, then there's the waiting for the elevator, then a lobby area, then a front courtyard and THEN the sidewalk/street.

By the time we get outside, she seems to have no idea why I've taken her out again.

I've some dog training experience and, in just 5 days, I've taught her how to properly greet and play with other dogs (she clearly had no socializing prior), taught her to sit, stay, lie down and come (the last one she did today for the first time while being distracted by other dogs -- huge milestone!).

But I cannot seem to break this one.

What I've tried:
While she wees on the pad, I don't praise her, but I say, "wee-wees!" a few times and take her outside and say it again. Sometimes, I've even brought the used pad with us. But she seems utterly confused by this process. Should I just keep trying it? Or a variation thereof?

Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated!

THX!

Well, she has started to go outside.

Not sure if it has anything to with anything I've been doing.

Another dog owner suggested as my apt. becomes "home" and the outside becomes territory she's comfy with, she might start marking it and not want to go inside. Perhaps that's it.

Are you still using the pads? I would get rid of them if your intent is to law her an outside bathroom dog only.

Well, you can train your dog to do their "duties" on demand...there is a command. But it takes a few sessions. What I can do, if you are interested is put together a few videos and send them to you.
