Ignore him. Cover the crate if that doesn't work. If that doesn't work mark with a no and slap the crate every time he cries. When he's being good for a bit take him out or slip a treat or two in there with him. Only feed him in the crate for a week or two. Never pull him out when he's being a jerk.
Thanks a lot. Im definitely going to try this. Right now he's sleeping on the floor. Not sure if I should wake him up and put him n there r not.
