Anytime you interact with him after he makes a fuss in the crate, you are rewarding the behavior.
You need to completely ignore him after you put him in the crate for the night.
I've told Ruger "quiet!" and told him to sit, then lie down, and give him a treat then walk away.
If he hasn't been taught what quiet means, it is just interaction, followed by attention and a treat.
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
