She will be 8 weeks old. I’m so excited!!

Any tips for crate training will be much appreciated!

Yay love a dobie puppy!! Have you got a name yet?

Make sure the crate is large enough as she will grow quickly!
Cover the crate to make it more like a 'den'
Don't use the crate as punishment or a time out. Don't allow people/pets to pester her whilst in the crate. The crate should be a safe space for her to take herself off too.

You can try feeding her in her crate (with door open) to form a positive association.
