i cant potty train my 2 year old dachshund please help

I've had him for about a year now and sometimes we do well and he pee's and poops outside but no matter what he always poops in the house. he was doing well for a little bit and peeing outside but he peed twice this morning in the house even though he was walked 20 min prior. he is not crate trained and is not used to being in confined spaces. He is taken out every one to two hours every single day but still pee's in the house sometimes he pee's on the pee pee pad sometimes but its rare. he sleeps with every night and sits on the coach hes a great dog except i just cant potty train him! HELP

Instead of a crate you can tether him to you and take him out every hour on the hour. Watch for signs that he has to go like sniffing, whining, nudging you, circling, etc and take him straight outside to a certain spot, praise like crazy when he goes and give him yummy treats! Pick up the potty pads and clean the whole place with a black light and enzymatic cleaner like nature's miracle. You need to be REALLLY consistent and patient like he was a puppy and just learning.
