Crate train. Then stick to a schedule. As a young puppy and a puppy that's just learning they need a lot of patience from you and to be let out every few hours. Expect accidents and again be patient. There are some good books and videos that go into detail about this and give you a lot of problem solving material as you're going through it. Good Luck!

Set up a schedule and stick to it. I think the theory is 20 minutes for each week they are old is what they can hold it for. also just watch for signs..like sniffing the floor. take them out and use a sing word to associate with going to the bathroom. then praise them "good potty"

I agree to all the people answer to your question! If you stay home with your puppy and have time to watch him at all time, take him out as soon as he wakes up from his nap, right after play time, right after feeding(including water). Some people say to wait 10-15 min to take your puppy out after feeding, but my puppy always had to go right after feeding!!

If you don't have time to be with your puppy to watch his sign to go potty, use crate. If your puppy is 2month old, he should be able to hold for 2 hours, 3 hours for 3month old pup. I know it's hard to keep your cute little puppy in a crate, but it won't take too long. If the peeing in the house become habbit, it will be hard to break so stick to your plan and train your puppy.

Good luck!
