I'm not an expert but I have found with my two 6 month old Bich/Poos that we had to create an area within the backyard where we put them when we wanted them to "do their duty" We would take them out, tell them to "do their duty" over and over and when they did, they get lots and lots of praise from us. It helped us immensely. They know if we let them out in the yard, they can play, when we take them to that area they have to get down to business.
It really worked for us in training them.
I've also heard that Cocker's are much harder to train. We had one when I was growing up and he was also harder to train than any other dog.
Good Luck to you, Stick with it and keep a watchful eye when Oscar's out so you can give praise. I hope all goes well for you and Oscar.
