A pup her age may need to go out every 2 to 3 hours...since you have had issues with her wtting at night I would take her every 2 for a night or two and then 3 hours for a couple.  I would increase the hours every 2 to 3 day, till you hit 4 hours.

Phoebe was able to hold till morning, but if she could she whined to let me know...but then her crate was the right size for her and she had nowhere to potty without sleeping in it.

We put her in her crate about 2am, then i woke up with her whining at 6, so i took her out n she did a wee wee! Then at 10 when we got up we took her out n she went again, as far as i can tell she hasn´t done anything in her crate.

Wow...that's kinda rude on his part.  Shouldn't it be YOUR decision where YOUR dog sleeps? 

Consistency is the key here, so I would have tried to insist that she stay in a crate or find someone else to watch her that is willing to crate her.

If it had been for longer i would have, but been as all the dogs slept together i thought she might not settle as well with the other dogs loose around her and that way she could get up and go potty if needed as they were all outside! After this weekend, i have decided i wanna open my own kennels, but not kennels, i want like a pampered pooch hotel! The kinda place I would want Leyla to stay! I can´t be the only one who feels like that!

Well it´s been almost a week since we got back and she is not taking well to the crate at night. She´s fine if we go out in the day (although dani didn´t close it properly yesterday and we got home to find she had escaped and was snuggled in our bed!!!) But at night she cries soooo much! Every night and when she has been taken out half way through the night she´ll start crying again! I don´t know what to do!

Well, you really shouldn't take her out until she's calmed down. If she even whimpers slightly, ignore her until she's quiet. She cries so much b/c she knows you'll let her out. I know it's really hard... but you have to be persistant! NEVER let her out until she's quiet - even if she farts! ;D

When i say we take her out half way through the night, it is to take her into the garden to potty!
