I was careful to be clear about things. Pup out of crate, go potty, get praise!!! Then back inside for fun times. Pup does not potty outside, back in crate for 10 minutes and try again.

If you want to play outside, I would make a clear differentiation. Outside, potty. Back inside for a few minutes, then outside(to a different area) to play. If possible, in the beginning, play out front, potty in the back (hehe like a mullet). Do not confuse potty area with play area.
