Puppy Potty training question ~ confused….?

I've heard two different things about potty training your puppy…I've heard if you catch them “in the act” inside, to take them outside and let them do their business. If they don't go outside put them in their crate for a few minutes before bringing them outside again…do this until they go outside.

Then I've also heard not to use the crate as punishment. Doesn't the above example seem like punishment? Or is the above an exception when crate training??

Please help clarify this for me if you have any experience…thanks!!

PS. Just got him about a week ago. He is a dachshund/chihuahua mix and he is 12 weeks old. He has had much progress in the past week as far as going outside (for the most part) when we bring him out… but he messes in his (very small) crate every night. I even wake up twice per night to take him out (which he does go when I take him out).

His name is Louie..here's a pic of him!
