Google “bell training” it will show you how to teach him to ring a bell when he has to go.

Whle you’re working towards that, I’d get rid of any rugs you have in the house.  Even the slightest scent of urine will encourage him to go potty on that spot again.  Also, give him water at structured times, instead of allowing him free access.  Then wait about 5 minutes and take him out.

Finally, don’t let him out of your sight during this training period.  Watch for signs like restlessness, or pacing and making eye contact with you.  Also, my dog gets kind of crabby when she has to pee, so that’s a sign too.

If this is a new and persistent problem, you may want to rule out a bladder or kidney infection.  It might make it harder to hold his pee and he might need to go more frequently if that’s the case.

Once you make sure your pup is healthy, I second PP’s suggestion to bell train.  There is also a product called Nature’s Miracle that is supposed to remove the urine stain so he doesn’t keep going on that spot.

@DaneLady:  Shoot… I meant to go back and edit my post, but yes, as Dane Lady suggested you should have him tested for any UT infections.  They make the urge to go very sudden and can be painful, so holding it is very difficult.
