That I'm not positive about. What I do is bring the pup out then say stones, wait for them to go then right as their butt is lifting say good stones and give a tasty treat.
Ideally what you'd really want to do is first capture (clicker/marker word, treat, praise), her peeing in her potty spot. You'd do that by clicking, or using a marker word like good, and treating, as soon as her butt starts to lift and throw a potty party. Once she understands that pottying in her area gets her a treat you add your potty command to it. So you'd take her to her spot, say stones, wait for her to potty and then click/marker word as soon as her butt lifts, treat, and good stones, yay, your the best puppy ever! She should quickly learn that you're saying stones and her pottying are connected to the word stones. Once she makes that connection you can start asking her stones inside and see if she'll run to the door.
