I wouldn't worry about teaching outdoor potting at this time of year, quite frankly. She will learn very naturally as the weather gets nicer and she is more comfortable outdoor. I had a "winter puppy" too... Panda came home mid-Jan. I made sure that I worked hard on her "indoor potty training" and she became very reliable with her litter box. When the weather got nicer, she would "just go" when we were outdoors together, and we would, of course, praise her lavishly. By June she was going outside more than in her potty, and before the end of the summer, she was rarely using the litter box except in bad weather... Just like my older dogs.
