What some people do is set up an ex-pen attached to the front of the crate. You can then use a litter pan of some type for the pup to relieve itself. You can also ask the breeder to keep the pup a little bit longer. Some breeders offer this at an additional price and will start some training as well. I have my litter in a pen with a litter box and a couple crates. I just use wood shavings picked up from any farm supply store. Try to get the flakes and not the fine stuff. They also have water bottles (the type you would have for a rabbit) for puppies you can hang on the ex-pen.
