I had the same problem Saydee. A trainer told me at this age they can hold it for at least 20 minutes. So once she's gone potty, I don't let her out again for 20 minutes, no matter how many times she slams the bell into the door. I just ignore it, as if I don't even hear the bell. When the 20 minutes are up I say "Good girl!" when she rings the bell and make sure she goes potty before I let her back in. By that time, she can pretty much go on demand. So far, no accidents resulted from this little technique...
Saydee also tries to bring toys outside to play with. This results in her being so distracted with RLH that she doesn't get her business done. This also makes for alot of dirty wet toys. So, the rule now is that she must "leave it" before going out. If she really needs to go, she drops it. Then it's fun time when she's done and comes back in for the toy again!
