Welcome to the site! Gosh dont they just frustrate you! especially when you know they can hold it. I would use the umbilical cord method where he is attached to you and does and goes wherever you go! this way you can monitor him for signs and corret them immediately. If he pee'd a few hours ago and you come upon it, he really doesnt know at that moment what you may correct him for. If you catch him in the act then you can immediately deal with it by picking him up taking him outside and once he pee's then praise him like crazy!!!
They usually catch on quickly because as you may not like them tethered to you they dont want to be either!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
