Your poodle's crate is her home within your home, so she needs to feel cozy and content. If you're using this for training purposes, I would definitely get a small crate with a divider. Head to the store and "eyeball" which crate is big enough for her to fit in, stand in, lay comfortably in, and have enough space to turn around comfortably/move around a bit. This is not a play area, but more so a bed and comforting place for them. If potty training, when you set up the crate set up the divider so that she has room to lay down comfortably and turn around--This establishes her crate space as her bed, and dogs will, in most cases, not defecate where they sleep.
