Question Housebreaking a 3 month old? (pup!)

My dad got a new puppy since we moved out (haha celebrating much? ) its a 3 month old shih tzu X pomeranian mix (looks nothing like a shih,looks more like a lil pom) anyway "Nibbles" WiLL use the bathroom outside,but he'll also pee inside...so how abouts will we go about training him to just pee outside?
Any tips?
We know about the crate...he just tries to sleep in those =P
& Yes,he's going to get neutered @ 6 months of age.Hes not "marking" he's just peeing..

Well:
-bring him outside 20 minutes after eating or drinking
-bring him outside every hour
-praise him when he goes outside and try to catch him in the act of going inside

The more you bring him outside the quicker he will learn. Say you took him out every 1/2 hour and he may learn sooner. Good luck!

I think it depends on the dog too. It took me awhile to get Kit bathroom trained 100%, but papillons and other small/toy dogs can be harder to train than other breeds, according to what I read and experience.

No dog is completely house broken until around 6 months of age. Just take them out all the time! Keep them on a leash in side so you are always on the other end. A dog can't pee in another room when you are 5 feet away if you spot them going say no. pick them up and take them out. then praise like mad when they go out side.

Pups are tend not to hold much their pee because of their young bladder but more often teaching them to use the right place to pee is the best.
