Emmajordan, A couple of us have told you to place the crate next to your bed in a position where you can just drape a hand into the top of the crate and the pup will calm down and go back to sleep. Trust me, this does work. We have had, probably, 20 pups, in tha last 30 years or so and they all went through that initial whine phase in one or two nights. A soft crate with a zip opening on the top is the go. It must be large enough to be usable when she gets bigger. THE DOOR MUST BE CLOSED.
A bit of play with her, after toileting, and just before you turn off the lights will help her sleep. The play should be enough to tire her. Use a flirt pole with a piece of sheep skin on the end. You can also use this time to start the retrieve training. When she catches the sheep skin praise her lavishly and slowly pull the cord and sheep skin back to you, shaking and gently tug all the way in. Lavish praise when she is in your lap.
