How can I train my dog to poop on the pad?

I just got my dog almost 2 weeks ago and he is 11 weeks old. Hes a maltese mixed with shih tzu and hes the cutest thing! My only problem is he refuses to poop on the pad. He will pee but not poop. We check every thirty minutes if he has to pee by tapping on the pad and saying pee pee pooh pooh, but he walks up pees and walks away, then ends up sniffing and pooping on the tile or carpet. We've tryed eberything we could think of. When he would poop we would tell him no and most of the times give him a timeout. He just doesnt like pooping on the pad! The first night he was with us he did and he hadn't used the bathroom at all at our house and he still pooped on the pad! But he hasnt since.. Help?

He has his poo scent on the flooring now and that's why. Put a bit of his poo on the pad then deodorize where he went on all flooring. Off brand Lysol will work great for this! :)
