Finding a dog trainer, because I could not do it myself!

So I have a new puppy and after more then one failed attempt at potty training.
I have come to the realization I must be doing something wrong, because I can't seem to house train my 4 month old puppy.

Things we are already doing:
1)keeping a regular schedule with mealtimes
2)praising him and treating him when he goes in the right place
3)never scolding him when he goes inside, just cleaning it up with a proper enzyme cleaner
4) Crate training
5)Have had him seen by a vet to check for any health problems

The good thing is he's never had an accident inside his crate, and can easily hold it for 3 hours during the day inside his crate.

The bad thing is that he does not seem to know that inside is not ok. He goes outside just fine. But then we'll come inside and he'll do a little wee a little bit later. The only way we don't have any accidents is if I take him outside every half hour.

I started to read every blog i could find and tried ever http://www.wikihow.com/Train-a-Dog article I could read.

I then found Valor K9 Academy provides expert dog training Located in Spokane, WA  I started watching there youtube channel and I could not believe what all Havoc her adorable german shepherd could do. Anyways we started virtual training with Amy. Now my little guy has mastered the potty and so much more.
