When you find your cavachon going in places he's not supposed to, don't scold him, tell him gently "no, pick him up and bring him out, even if he's in the middle of doing his business. They usually stop when you pick them up. At this age they can't control their muscles yet. It's very important to pick up on his cues. There are some nice training videos online. Some tips: take him out within 15 mintues whenever he drinks, eats, plays and/or wakes up. With consistency you'll have success. Also, don't wait longer than 20 minutes, if he doesn't go yet, bring him in, wait a few minutes and then bring him out again, reward him with treats immediately after he goes. We were successful doing this as our little girl was trained by 12 weeks old. She would give us a cue by standing in a corner and staring at us, now all we have to do is ask her and when she cocks her head, it means she has to go. Good luck!
