Ok..thanks for ALL the replies! I appreciate it.
He has his favorite stuffed cow and his chew rope inside the crate with him.
I've started pretty much leaving him in the crate if I can't have my eyes on him 100 percent. Yesterday he pee'd in the floor right after I got out of the shower, I was telling him to come on--and he wouldn't come and then he just pee'd. I was so upset. I caught him mid-act and told him no very loud and took him outside. He cries alot when he's in the crate.

For those that told me crate train--give me some tips.
Leave him in the crate most of the time? How much time? (he's in the crate everytime I'm gone and sometimes when I'm super busy--cooking, etc)

He cries, what do I do to stop him from crying?
Should I carry him outside or make him walk--to understand?

I use the same words everytime. "Go Potty"
and I say "potty" while he's doing the I praise him and tell him "good potty" also.

He is only 8 weeks old but I must say doing better than my g/f's puppy did when he was young (he's a year now and completely trained).

Another thing I'm wondering--she can bring him home from her parents. I was thinking that this may help since Ace can see Kip (heather's dog) going outside and understand. Plus he won't be lonely. Is this a good or bad idea?

Thanks guys!! About to go walk the little fellar!

Go to petsmart dot com and read what they have to say!

As for me I only let my puppy out of his crate to go outside,eat or play for a little while! If you let him out too much then an accident is bound to happen and that is a setback! Take the puppy to the spot outside you want it to go in then take him to the same spot everytime and he will then associate the spot with using the bathroom! Dogs are den animals so make the crate as cozy as possible and make sure it is not too big. Dogs won't pee where they sleep and eat, so if the crate is to large it will used the bathroom in a corner away from his sleeping spot! Puppies have small bladders so make sure you don't leave him in there to long. 3 month old pups can only hold it in for 3-4 hours at a time! If you are gonna be longer than that you might want to use a small area ie bathroom floor with a puppie pad! These are just a few tips. Crate training may seem cruel, but it is not!

+1 to dogs feeling safe in a "den". throw a blanket over the crate and cover all sides except for the front. as far as positive reinforcement and repetition with the word "potty", keep it up. he'll get the hang of it pretty quickly
I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.

Thanks and Ace just went walking for about 30 good minutes...twice around my whole apartment complex. He is playing and as soon as he stops, I'll take him outside one last time and then it's ready for bed.

In the morning, as soon as I get up he goes outside, then play/eat while I fix breakfast/get ready then into the crate while I'm at school. I come home after school, take him out again, give him a little more food, then back into the crate when I go to work. When I get home from work, I usually take him on a long walk and then to the "potty spot" and then he eats again, naps and walks one more time before bed.

I've only had him for like 2 weeks but he's just over 8 weeks old so I think he's doing pretty good. Just getting him in a routine and not letting him out of my site. I've fortified all the "hiding places" so he can't get to them and all the doors are closed so he has limited area to even play in.

Like I said, heather is going to bring Kip home I think so he should help us train him better (Kip was trained by heather's mom who has 2 other dogs that are VERY well trained). They got Kip trained in like a week and a half.
I think it's just gonna be persistance and with his age.

Again, should i walk him to the door or pick him up?

Thanks guys!

You can let him out after he has done his business in the yard, only if you have your eyes on him. If you are occupied with something else, put him back in the cage/crate. Since it is a puppy, I think about 2 hours interval for taking care of business if you feed him regularly or left the water and food out and he could eat and drink anytime. If you regulate the food and drink then you can pretty much knows his intake.
