Higgins my beautiful coton

Higgins is a boy, 15 pounds and 8 months old. He is very loving. He seems quite long for his size, and can jump through the air with the greatest of ease, quite amazing. Wondering if he is full grown? He also goes to bed at 7 and wakes up at 7, actually have to coax him out of his crate. He does love his crate, sleeps next to my bed never makes a peep. We have one downstairs also that we leave the door open and he goes in and out as he likes.
Just wondering how long it will take to completely potty train him? Right now we let him out every two hours, he is starting to bark or wine at the front door to let him out. His accidents have always been at the rug in front of the front door mainly. We have always had collies before Higgins and they always came and got us when they wanted to go out. Hoping Higgins will do this eventually. It’s amazing how much in love we are with him, he lays on our laps now occasionally. We were going to keep him off the couches but that’s out the window as he lies beside or on us now. Just wondering how big he will get? Also if he will become potty trained so we may leave him in the house uncrated when we are gone for a hour or two, right now we crate him.
