If there's nothing physically wrong with your pup, I'd start the housetraining from scratch again. Take him as often as possible, every hour if you can and praise/reward like mad when he does go. When indoors, look for signs that he needs to go ie. excessive sniffing and circling. If necessary, attach him to you via long leash so you can keep a closer eye on him and will be able to interrupt when he does show signs he's about to eliminate (a simple "uh uh" will do) and take him out immediately. Punishment or time outs won't make him learn any faster unless we want to punish ourselves for not supervising closely enough or not providing enough opportunities for them to go in the right place .
