Gracie started out on a UGODOG, which will still do use. When she was about 18 months old, we hung some bells on the door and several times a day we would walk her outside, ringing the bells and telling her to "go potty outside". When she would "go potty", we had a big potty party followed by a few treats. Sometimes, she still comes into the house looking for her "potty treats"! We've kept her UGODOG, and she will use it on rainy or cold days, or sometimes late at night. She did regress a bit this winter because of all of the snow and soggy grass, late in the season, but she's doing much better again now that the weather is getting nicer.
Good luck with your outside training!
