Let me solve this problem for you. Get a small crate. Probably smaller than you think is appropriate. Small enough that if he choses to soil it, he has to lay in it. Then, feed and water him, in the crate, or at least immediately put him in the crate after. Go away for 30-45 minutes. Then take him outside. He will use the bathroom and receive over the top praise for it. If he doesn't, he goes back in the crate... repeat in 30 minutes. You will, with certainty, win this way. If he uses the bathroom in the house outside of the crate, well thats really you screwing up not him... you failed to teach. Puppies don't get scolded. And dogs don't get scolded for doing something you didn't teach them not to do.

In the off chance he's a pig and doesn't mind his own filth, post back and we'll solve that, but there is a 1% chance he is *that* dog.

kelina I don't understand you. Here you say you don't need crates - in the therapy thread you say "My pup is a hella puller for the time being, so im correcting this performance with a prong ATM after a months of use and still no improvement, I will throw the therapy dog out of my mind! So no prong use during testing!" and that your dog used to be afraid of everything.

the advice you gave for house training is unecessary negative training .

OP that is one cute dog !!!! Are you able to put up even the smallest little kennel so that your dog is put out unitl he relieves himself . Only then can he come inside.
For people with small yards you can train your dog to use a designated area to potty. You can make a little sandbox , put your pee pad into that and he will get the idea . Easy to clean up after the dog . No problem in accidently stepping into a poo pile .
