You might try putting some of your well-worn clothing in the crate. Your familiar scent can be very calming. A watch that ticks can also help as it mimics the sound of a heart beat. Placing the crate by a window for "doggy TV" is also helpful.

As an alternative to the crate, is there a way that you can pen him/her in the kitchen? We did this with our puppy and it worked very well. She had access to water, shade, sun and a big window to watch the world go by.
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!

I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
