Congrats on your new addition! You have to watch the pup like a hawk so he doen't have an opportunity to have an accident. Watch for any sniffing or circleling and take him out immediately. We took our pup out every few hours the first week and gave her a command to go. Of course praise him every time he goes outside, but what really sealed the deal for our pup was a treat as soon as she was done. Both our dogs are 100% housetrained now. It took about a month for each to be totally reliable. Consistancy was the key for us. Good luck!
