Not unusual for the pup to slip up. If you can catch him in the act, a firm no and put him outside in the area you have designated for him to go in. When he does "go" outside make sure to praise him. My rule of thumb when house breaking is they go outside every 20 minutes and NO playing. Bring him right to the area and wait for him to go, if he doesn't go, bring him back in and try again in 10 minutes, repeat as necessary. Don't be surprised when he is outside for 15 minutes and decides to pee as soon as he gets back in the house, LOL.
If possible, take him out one door for doing his business and use another door to take him out for walks or playtime in the yard. He will soon associate that this door is for doing his business and it's not a time for play.
Hang in there, it just takes some time for the dog to realize what you want him to do and where.

It's totally normal for pups to slip up. Housebreaking takes a lot of time and patience. My pups are 6 months (we brought them home at 8 weeks) and they still have the occasional accident if one of us isn't paying attention. My male pup, Kaos, always goes to the back door when he has to go, but if we're not paying attention he comes back after a few minutes and goes in the house. In fact (I found this hysterical even though I probably shouldn't lol) just last night, my husband and I were laying on the sofa with our pack. I had our oldest Ciara literally laying on me and I saw Kaos go to the door. I told Kyle that Kaos needed to go out since he was encumbered by an additional 75 lbs on top of him. He proceeded to tell me that Kaos was only sniffing something (he was being L-A-Z-Y!) so I said, "Ok but when he pee's in the house, you're cleaning it up!" Needless to say after a few minutes, Kaos proceeds to come back up the steps, walks into the living room right in front of us, lifts his legs and pees all over Kyle's boots!!!!!!! I know I should have corrected him but all I could do was laugh hysterically and say "I told you so!" Clearly, Kyle did not find it as amusing as I did but he had to laugh too and admit I was right!

Nala, our little girl, is better about holding it but not as good at telling us when she has to go. Fortunately, Kaos has to go more often so Nala doesn't really have accidents because she goes out at the same time as Kaos (sometimes together, sometimes apart one after the other). Plus I have the added benefit of the pups having big sister Ciara to help teach them. It's so true that dogs learn more from each other than us sometimes as Ciara has taught them a lot; some good, some not so good :-).

Hang in there, it will happen just be patient, expect some accidents, and be as consistent as possible.

Ok that is funny lol. Ya I think the weather is a contributing factor, he obviously dosent like the cold or the snow on his paws. He would whine and let me know when he had to go, even though I was taking him out non stop, but since the storm hit I take him out and he just runs back in, can't really get mad at him. I gated off a hallway (I have a 2 year old daughter) and put some puppy pads down, so when he just runs back inside and doesn't go I put him in the hallway and he goes on the pads. Can't complain either way, it's better then just all over the house.

Yeah the weather can make it hard. I got lucky there again, they all love the snow. You could try booties and see if that helps. Put them on him in the house first and let him get used to having them on his feet and then try taking him out. Could help for the future but sounds like you really have a great alternative for little Apollo and that's awesome he's going on the pads! We never got ours to use the pads but it was August and September so we didn't ha e to deal with weather either!

I was really trying to avoid the whole puppy pad, but I fell bad with the snow. But better then just going everywhere in the house, I know in the long run it would cause more of a headache. I still take him out constantly and most of the time he will go, and even if I see him go on the pads I take him right outside, I don't tell him no or anything like that, just want to keep on top of it.
