|We have a wire crate and a pop-up crate. The boys easily transfer to any wire crates, but for some reason they think the soft sided one is going to eat their souls. They'll go in, but pace, pant, and whine the whole time they're in there. Plus, if unsupervised they'd easily be able to break out of it.
Would taking an x-pen or baby gate work? It'd be a lot easier. Some people use the soft crates and do fine, but mine didn't and were even introduced at a young age.
Also, keep in mind that not all soft crates are created equal. We have a pretty sturdy heavy duty one I ordered online. The ones at Walmart and Target are mostly just nylon mesh and only contain the dog if it's content to just snooze anyway. They're about the same as those pop-up laundry baskets, but with a zipper closure.
