Awww, a new puppy! I had good success with my last puppy by taking him out just as soon as she finished eating her meal. Most animals have to go almost as soon as they finish eating, just like a human baby. I kept her in the kitchen on the linoleum floor, just in case there were accidents, blocked with a baby gate. Also, I took her out first thing in the morning, and last thing before we went to bed, letting her know that this was expected. It takes time, but eventually they learn that there's a routine that they are expected to follow. Good luck, bet it's a real cute pup!
