When can a puppy begin to be reasonably toilet trained?

Here`s another great article:

My puppy is a 7 week old male border collie mix. He has been with me for a little over a week now. Normally I would not want a puppy this young nor do I recommend it, but he had to leave early by vet recommendation due to concerns with his mother. As much as I love him, it's honestly a nightmare. I haven't slept for more than a few hours since having him due to the very frequent toilet wake-ups.

In the past, any puppies have had almost immediate access to outside in the form of a small patio so I have never had this issue before. At what age would you think is reasonable for a puppy to begin to understand the concept of "hold it for a tiny bit and go outside"? This puppy is taken outside every hour as well as the usual after play, sleep, naps, eating etc, but he insists on peeing inside at random. He is also under constant supervision in an exercise pen and crate by my side as I work from home. I had a quick search online and it says around 3-4 months old but this doesn't seem correct to me. I think he is perhaps too young still to understand this concept even with all the toilet breaks but I just want to double check. He is a service dog in training and I have experience with training several other service dogs in the past so knowing how to train is not the issue.
