If this was my dog, I would make sure that s/he was on a schedule. When I took the pup out i would give a treat each time the pup went. If the puppy did not go while outside I woud bring the pup back in and put him in the crate for about 10 minutes and then try again. When the puppy finally goes outside give him a lot of praise. If the puppy has an accident in the house you can not punish him unless you catch him in the act. Dogs live in the now so what they did 5 minutes before has already been forgotten.
