We have crated dogs in a separate room from training, but they are still a distraction if they bark. We practice a lot off leash too, and the trainers always try and distract our dogs with toys, food, people, conflicting commands, and other dogs. I think it's a big help actually. Non-stop barking would be annoying though, so if that's the case I'm not sure I'd like it. Obedience in the midst of distraction is a great thing to practice with a dog though
