    well what I did was that we would kind of set up a "schedual" for the dog, try taking him/her out in the morning before breakfast,and stay out there until he/she goes to the bathroom. than repeat in the afternoon,aswell as in the evening, or an hour or two after meals for obvious reasons. after a while your dog will develop a habit of letting you know when it's time to go outside such as jumping at the door. hope this advice helps!

    Your best bet for this problem is crate training.  Buy a dog crate that gives him only enough room to stand up and turn around.  When you're not home and overnight, keep him in the crate.  Make sure he sees it as a "happy place" and leave the door open with toys/treats so he can go inside anytime he wants.  If you aren't able to watch him, put him in the crate.  As soon as he comes out or has a meal, take him outside.  When he goes outside praise him like crazy!  Dogs typically won't urinate or defecate where they sleep.  Once he gets the hang of things, you'll be able to leave him out of the crate when you're not home.  If you need anymore help, let me know!
