Welcome to the forum. :)

Your little one is adorable, from what I can see on the avatar, so we definitely need bigger pictures posted. :biggrin: How long have you had your little guy, he is awfully young to be away from his mom and siblings.

From what you've posted he is doing great at potty training at such young age. In order to help him remember where to go, he really needs to be either tethered to you by leash or in a crate or better yet in a playpen (with he bed, toys and pee pads) when you can't watch him. Do you just let him roam free?

As to his name just keep calling him and evert time he responds, praise him and give him a treat.

It can be challenging to use the leash. Make sure that when you walk him, you use a harness with the leash, not a color. You don't want to damage his throat.

Do you have any books on puppy rearing? If not, I'd like to recommend a very good book by Dr. Ian Billinghurst called How to Teach a New Dog Old Trick. It's an excellent book and well worth the time and money. Here's the link to amazon.com.

As far as exercise/play pen, you don't need to build one, you can buy a small one, since you have a toy poodle. Here's a link to a small plastic play pen. You can also use a baby play pen, etc.

If his eyes run a lot/all the time, I would clean them every morning and/or night with just warm water and cotton balls or to get everything out. Flea comb works great to remove the gunk from the eyes.
