For a successful attempt, lay newspapers at different spots around your house and then place Puppy on the newspaper when you think he wants to go.
After some time Puppy will look for a place itself, then start to reduce the number of newspapers until there is only one left at the front or back door. Puppy will learn to go to the door if it needs to relieve itself.
Finally you can remove the newspaper and your Puppy is now house trained.
NEVER punish an accident afer the event.
A dog whose nose is rubbed in it will never understand that. REWARD is much better than punishment, otherwise your Puppy will only get frightened of you.
