Paper Training Maltese

Help! I've had my Jazz baby (6 month male) for two weeks now. I use puppy wee pads, and from day one he's been 99% cooperative in going on the pad. I've used lots of lavish praise and small treats to reinforce, and been very successful for 2 weeks. For the past 2 days he has yet to use the wee pad one single time! He's closely supervised, so I "catch him in the act" nearly every time, scold him, and put him on the wee pad. I will see him go to the pad, go in circles sniffing it, then run about a foot away from it and squat on the floor. Any ideas?
