|Hi there! I was just wondering if you guys were using a crate. Dachsies can be pretty stubborn about that as well, but if you can stick out their protests it is a great tool for housebreaking.
Also, make sure that you're using a pet-specific cleaner for dealing with the "accidents." You'll want to make sure that every enzyme and smell is out of the carpet, otherwise you're inviting the pup to mess in the same place over and over again. Nature's Miracle is an example of a cleaner that deals well with this issue, but there are others as well.
Another thing that helps a lot is keeping to strict schedules. Always feed at the same times each day (very young puppies will almost always have to go about 20 minutes-45 minutes after they eat) and stick to a regimented potty schedule. This will help you predict outside needs and teach the pup where the proper location for relieving himself is located.
