Yeah, I would pick him up and run outside while saying "outside, outside, outside..." and then I said "PEE PEE" really happy and high pitched as he did it, outside, and said "YES! PEE PEE!" and acted all silly... his tail would wag like crazy and we played after, then went back in.
It's great now, Riley will actually go "pee pee" on command. If we were outside, and about to go in, but I didn't see him pee first, I would say "Riley, go pee pee!" and point to the yard, and he'd run over, pee while staring at me, then run back over to come indoors, lol, it's so great! He also stands near the door when he needs to go out, as well.
Though I have to admit, I don't really give him any chances to make mistakes. I know how long he can hold it. And I have a sort of schedule for what times I let him out now. He knows the drill, and we haven't had any accidents since he was 12-14 weeks old. Last accident was in his kennel and it was my fault. Never happened again.
