Potty Training Our 3 Month Old Female Australian Shepherd

Our 3 month old Aussie, Lola is such a sweetie and so smart she gets along great with our 2 year old Lab and 13 year old Border Collie. They have the run of our 2 acres and are indoor dogs.
Lola goes potty the minute she goes outside and has since she was a puppy. We kennel her while at work every day and she loves her kennel. The problem is she still goes potty in the house and she does not even have a favorite spot she goes anyplace she wants.
We have tried putting a bell on each door and she thinks they are just a toy, we take her outside,(separate from the other dogs so she doesn't play) the minute she wakes up from a nap or every 20 minutes. She still potties in the house.
Any solutions to this issue? We do scold her when we find the mess but sometimes I'm not sure if she even makes the connection. She certainly doesn't show any quilt.
Thanks for your help in advance.
