I'd feed her in her crate...let her get use to it when she is in a 'tired' mode, but not overtired, and give her high value treats when you put her inside. Soon she will see the crate as her safe den.

I think many pups feel more secure in a plastic vari-kennel over the wire crates. I use a smaller one for the young pup kept in the bedroom right next to the bed...when pup outgrows it, then go to a larger one and then wire is more accepted, but I think wire can be dangerous in comparison to the plastic.
