He does poop on the pads consistently though.Sometimes pads can make it more difficult as the dog can't always make the distinction between pad and floor (outside vs inside is much more clear).
Rest easy, he's still very young in the potty training department! Most puppies don't get real bladder control/awareness until 12 weeks or so, and smaller breed puppies can take longer.If he is still at an age where that can happen, that makes me feel better.

Why not train on the patch out side. It will get you on a schedule of taking him out. Right now you are teaching him it is OK to go inside.My goal was to have him use a potty patch on my balcony. So far he thinks the artificial grass is great... to try to eat, lol. He is getting better with the pads though.
