My dog has toys everywhere and is never in a crate and she does well in agility, so I don't think that is an issue, but I guess that would depend on the dog. Since you have done what appears to be quite a bit of obedience, have you thought about getting into agility? You might be surprised what your dog can do. Training is not necessarily all business, it can be playful and fun...your dog seems to need that fun part, nothing wrong with that.
