My puppy is 8 weeks old today, but she pees all the time, approximately 5 times in less than an hour, even if I take her out, 10-15 mins later again she pees again in the house, I dont know what to do, she is also drinking A LOT of water, is this normal?

At 8 weeks both of my boys peed every 15 minutes. A dog won't be fully house trained until like 6 months IMO-- that's when they can start appropriately holding their bladder and also have the bladder capacity to be able to go longer than 30-60 minutes between breaks.

Puppies pee frequently. They need to go outside every 15 to 20 minutes generally. They have tiny bladders and they do not yet understand how to fully control it, nor do they have the capacity to understand what a full bladder feels like before it reaches the "RED ALERT" stage until they get older.

Every 15 minutes sounds right, if they're awake.
