Thank you. Did you do any type of crate training, and if so, did you wait a certain amount of time before starting it with them?

I'm not sure if I should start her crate training from the first night or let her sleep on a blanket for the first night out of a crate (next to my bed), then transition her to crate training overnight once she gets over being away from her mother and litter.
