I crate trained my former dog from a small puppy and it worked well. However I tried with my dog Yogi who is a small dog and it didn't work but he took to house training very well and it was quick. So I know every dog has different learning styles.

I'm thinking a walk first thing will help reduce her accidents in the morning and give her some time to get everything out. My concern is mostly her frequency and that she doesn't seem to hold it in for long. I feel like I'm hovering over her every minute!

ETA: I find that potty training a child is very close to potty training a dog. Vigilance, consistency, rewards and praise help tremendously.
