You don't have to use treat as a reward, though that is what most dogs like. You can use whatever he really, really likes. Does he likes toys? Attention? Try a "people food" yet like a piece of chicken? I can't imagine a dog in the world that wouldn't like chicken.
And now, a copy from someone else where I posted about housebreaking (I'm too lazy to re-type it, BOL):
When the dog goes potty where it's not supposed to, instead of punishing it, just clean the mess up. Only if you catch the dog in the act will correcting the dog work. If you catch her pottying where she's not supposed to, say something like "ah!" or "no!" to startle it, then picky the puppy up take it where it's supposed to go potty. Praise and reward wildly for going in the right spot.
Also, take her where's she's supposed to go after naps, eating, and when you see her circling, sniffing, and/or crouching (which are signs that she has to go).
