You may have to take him out every five minutes, if that's what it takes. Remember, he's a baby and has very little control over his bladder and bowel movements right now. You have to be vigilant. Maybe stay outside with him a little bit longer and see if he finishes emptying his bladder if he gets a little more time. Or take him out and let him pee and poop, then return him to his crate for 5-10 minutes, then take him out again, repeat as many times as necessary.
Merlin has been known to pee three times in a row sometimes, depending on how much water he's had, and he's older than your pup.
How much does he pee when he has all of his accidents? If it's small amounts, then it's possible that he needs to get checked for a UTI. A common symptom is frequent, but small pees that can occur without warning. Definitely take him in if he seems to be in pain when he pees.
