Question Potty Training. Help!

Hi, new GSD owner. His name is Bones and he is almost 20 weeks. He knows sit, stay, come, lay down, and shake. We have been working on potty training since we got him at 7 weeks and we just cant seem to get it down. I am crate training. When I cant keep my eyes on him he does get put in his crate and he sleeps in it at night. I bring him every time he needs to go. But he still goes every 5 minutes like he's still 7 weeks old. If I don't get up as soon as he is ready he will pee on the floor. I have about 30 seconds to get to the door. He holds it all night and while I'm gone, sometimes up to 6 hours. I just don't understand why he still goes outside every 5 minutes. How can I get him to hold it a little longer when he's out of his crate? I'm getting tired. He is a fast learner, when it comes to commands. We just cant get the potty training down. I praise him when he's good outside and I never scolded him for accidents up until 2 weeks ago. I don't spank, I tell him bad boy and put him in his crate for 5 minutes. Someone please help me. What am I doing wrong? Thank You, and sorry for any spelling errors.
