We went through all the same things with our two (and two at a time, too!). It seemed that for the first few months I was taking them outside every half hour, but we still had accidents in the house. Rascal was an excited pee-er too when people came to the door, but that went away as he got older. Pixie is still a bit of a vacuum cleaner at the age of 15 months, and we have to watch her. She also wouldn't walk on leash and we used treats to get her to go. Also gentle jerks on the leash and excited voices "let's go, let's go!" She eventually grew out of this stage (it is quite common with a lot of puppies) and now walks like a champ.
Puppy classes are really helpful, so the the sooner you can enroll Suki in one, the better. They'll help with the walking on leash issue and other questions you'll have.
