To use the crate to help potty break your pup you want her to have just enough room to stand up, sit down, turn around, and lay down all comfortable, but not much more than that. If you get a crate that is too large your pup might potty on one end and rest at the other, defeating the purpose. Also, if you think I might actually use the crate when your pup is full grown as well, you can get a crate to fit her at her full size that comes with a divider that you can move back as she grows.

You'll want to crate her while you're away at work, but keep her with you at night since she doesn't have any accidents during the night. Also start her on a type of potty schedule to take her outside during the day at maybe one hour intervals and limit her access to the house to areas where you can supervise her. That way if she starts to have an accident you can catch it and take her outside right away and praise her when she potties outside and not inside.

Hope this helps you.
