You are not taking him outside enough or he wouldn't be squatting in the house.
Outside every twenty minutes you are awake unless he's sleeping.
Outside after playing, eating, drinking, and napping, and every 20 minutes regardless of what else you are doing.
If you are not consistent with this you will never get your dog housebroken and your house will smell like a cesspool.
Take away food at 1900 and water at 2000. No more after this. Keep taking him out every twenty minutes and walk him around on a lead to the spot you have picked for him to go and say "go potty" or whatever you want to use as the command.
Set your alarm for 0100 and 0300 and whatever time you normally get up for work and take him out on a lead. DO NOT come back in until he goes. Paise him like he was the last dog on the planet when he goes, and come back in immediately. No playing.
You have no idea how easy this is if you will just be consistent and follow what I'm saying.
