Welcome to the forum! Here's what I did with Mocca when she was younger (8 weeks old or so). Stop giving water to your pup after dinnertime (Around 7pm or so). Take her out to relieve herself right before bedtime (For me, it was around 10-11pm). With Mocca, she barked or whined to wake me up when she needed to go in the middle of the night. However, if your pup doesn't do that, then you'll have to set your alarm clock to around 1-2am. Take her out to relieve herself at that time. At 6am, take her out again. I wake up at 6am cuz I'm still a student. Perhaps for you, you can take her out a bit later, say around 7-8am.

That was the schedule my pup and I established. Don't worry about sleeping habits, as they will definitely go to sleep at night. They may wake up once or twice in the middle of the night, but not to worry - they'll usually find ways to amuse themselves until they get sleepy again (puppies sleep a LOT ). I suggest "puppy-proofing" your room, i.e. keep all chewable items out of reach!
