For dog's your identity is more scent based.

Although I wouldn't be so worried about it, if you are, I would put in some t-shirts that you and your family members sleep in for a couple nights into her crate so that she is reminded of your scent in there.

Kinda like the same way you should ask your breeder for a towel or something with her mother and littermate's scent on it so that she will be more calm, relaxed, not as stressed out during the first days away from them.

The shirts would be a good idea because it is possible that she will be looking for you when your gone and not being able to find you, your scent would bring her comfort.
