this is what you need to do. roll up a news paper and slap yourself with it. you should be more on top of things and remember to take them out every hour or put them in a crate while you are gone. you also need to put them both on a strict scedual for their feeding and waterings. time how long it takes for them to releive themselves and mark it on a peice of paper. keep doing this for a week and see just about how long it takes for them to need to relieve. now you know just about how long it takes. make sure your not giving them water bofore 7am and after 7pm at night. you should also try to take them out after chewing on something and playing indoors.
if you do your part in potty training your dogs then they will do their parts. if you dont then you start from the begining again.
now you need to remember one more thing. you should not scold your dog, just tell them to go outside in a voice that is not yelling. because if you yell at them it only encourages them to go when your not looking or at home. this is exstreamly hard to break them of and should be avoided.
