Tux was the same way with chews. He began losing interest for a day or two and seemed to take more interest in a new cow tail. When he ate them, he had to poop twice as often and twice as much. I noticed as the cow tail treats were increased, he began throwing up occasionally. I eliminated them entirely. No more vomiting. He occasionally picks up his antler or his spanking clean marrow bone, but only for a two or three minutes. He began chewing and trying to eat his stuffed toys. I removed the ones he thought could be digested. He is a year and a half old, and the chewing seems to be abating. I suspect it is linked to boredom.
As far as potty training: Make sure you don't scold accidents. Clean up immediately. Use Nature's Miracle to eliminate any and all odor. Take Coco outside immediately after an accident. If he goes again, sing his praises. If not, take Coco outside every 30 to 45 min. If he is going more than that, have him checked for a urinary infection. As his bladder matures, he will need to go less and less often. Tux is up to 5 or 6 hours.
Tux eats Primal Raw nuggets that are kept frozen. I thaw four bricks and give them to him 7:30, 10:30, 4:30, and 8:30 with a tiny bit of raw goat milk. No stomach upsets, no itching, and tiny hard little rabbit sized poopy pellets once a day. (no waste in his food so very little poops). With any processed dog food, you risk ingredients that might not be so good for the pup. Read up on Primal. It's expensive, but not compared to vet bills.
