Ok I just got a puppy and i have had him for two weeks. I am crate training him and that worked fine for the first 3 days. The puppy for the most part is very well behaved but the problem is that I will take him outside for him to do his buisness and he will like normal, no sooner than we get into the house he pees right in the floor. Sometimes when I bring him in from his potty break i will put him in a section of the kitchen thats blocked off and within a half hour there will be 2 to 3 decent sized puddles of pee. The floor is cleaned and disinfected when ever he pees, im so confused as to why this is happening please help!

You have to catch him in the act...interrupt him so that he doesn't finish and immediately herd him to the right potty spot where he can finish. Lots of praise and a treat for going in the right area. If you can't watch him, he needs to go in the crate.
Puppies rarely finish going potty on the first try...they 'forget'/get distracted by EVERYTHING so, you might need to allow more potty time.

he already gets praised and a treat for doing his buisness. As for more time I dont have much to do so i usually have him outside for almost 15 minutes lol and he also goes out every hour (give or take a few minutes somtimes the timer dosent like me)

I have a similar problem. Mine is with my maltese. I have had my golden pup for 2 weeks already but is basically house broken, but there are rarely any accidents from her. the problem is my maltese, he isn't house broken at all. I'm afraid that the two puppies might get confused. The maltese has a hard time to go out to do his business. He only likes doing his business inside the house eventhough he has been outside for awhile.
