Been using bells for Bella since she was about 3 months. At first, she rang them too much, but I stuck with it, and she's grown out of that habit. Also, I had to tape some cardboard to the wood door frame behind the bell to keep it from getting scratched.
I trained Bella to go in a certain part of the yard by first bringing her out there on a leash. To this day, she gets a treat if she goes in the right spot.....and just a "good girl" if she doesn't. She usually wants the treat.
I would suggest that a crate is the best potty training tool that money can buy.
