    This is my thought...mine were always good in crates but sometimes the visual stimulation if we are around was too much so I always put a sheet or something light to cover the crate to allow both of us some privacy!

    So true! He won't step foot in his crate unless he knows I have a few pieces of kibble for him.

    Ha! Yes, but he still barks. Once he managed to find the smallest hole that wasn't covered by the blanket and was looking out from the very bottom corner of the crate, his nose pushed against the wire. The husband and I couldn't help but laugh hysterically at his determination. (You will get a kick out of this @Texas Carol, @sheshistory)

    So true, looks like I"m going to have to up the anty. Or try to manage him with his thunder shirt so he doesn't have to go into his crate.

    Thanks for the tip, @JoeR53! I will have to use our can to let him know the behavior sucks.
    @cali baker - I completely agree. Remi knows how to get under my skin for sure!!
    @brutus77 - no worries!

    Okay. I think I know what I have to do Thanks so much everyone!
