    We had problems with that type of crate when we first got Wilson. Had the large one just like you do. Wilson constantly panted during the night and was hot. We even got a fan and when he waked up during the wee hours of the night panting we'd turn the fan on and that did the trick. Turned out it lack of air circulation and when I got him a large open crate like your small one the panting problem was instantly solved. I think they also feel closed in, shelted in a way.

    The wire crates are better for circulation, because they will get hot in the plastic ones, maybe not so much up north were it's cold but down here were it's hot it would never work. Might try a wire crate, mine love theirs. And Zeus is such a cute boy.

    I never thought about those suggestions :-( I thought the plastic one mimics the den more because its closed off and darker, but maybe some dogs dont prefer it...I might have to get a wire one

    Our dog is 6 months old and I switched from the small to larger about 5 weeks ago. She acted the same way...for a couple weeks she really didn't seem to like it...but the other one was literally too small.She loves it now and goes in there to nap during the day...choosing to lay in there over soft dog beds in the house.

    You can also try putting it in the same spot with a blanket that was in the old one...Mine freak if I move their crates lol They will go and lay where the crate used to be.

    When we got Heff we used a wire crate and he was ok with it. The latch broke on it so I went to buy another one. They were sold out of wire ones so I bought a plastic one. BIG mistake. I put Heff in it he panicked and to make a long story short that was the end of his crate days. Even tried another wire one but no way.
    So now he has free run of the house.
    Who is the smart one eh?

    I'd try the wire crate...that is all we use for our bullies and they don't mind them at all!!! Although Zoey like to go in Louie's much smaller crate or lay width wise in hers so she is all scrunched up crazy dogs
