Crate or kennel - Your puppy will only need enough space to sleep while training. This isn’t ‘cruel’ but actually gives your puppy comfort like a ‘den’ once they adjust to it and are successful potty training, you can increase their space.  It helps to find a kennel that has a divider you can remove as the puppy grows.
