I have a fully fenced in back yard, and I left my puppy out there often by herself. I let her in when or if she wanted to come, but by the time she was around 4 months she would just hang out and play for hours sometimes.
My puppy was 12 wks when I brought her home, and she was used to being outside at the breeders, in fact, had never been in the house until she came home with me. I don't know if it was because of that, or in spite of it, but she was house trained very quickly. But I don't see how staying outdoors would adversely effect potty training.
