It would be extremely cruel to crate a puppy at this age for that long. Crate training is supposed to teach a dog to hold it longer, but if the puppy is physically incapable of holding it that long they have no choice but to go in the crate. Instead, put a pee pad at one end of the play area and her crate at the other end. Start teaching her to pee and poo on the pee pads and then she can use her crate for sleeping and it will give her a den so she can feel safe. The general rule of how long a dog can hold it is 1 hour +1 for how many months old a puppy is. So a 1 month old puppy can hold it for 2 hours.
