Many dogs like their crates (in case you are worried).
Aww, they sound like best buddies OB. Heart

I think I messed up a little with the crate because Kep doesn't seem to like it too much. He tolerates it but I don't think he likes it. Maybe it's because I generally only put him in when I leave the house.
I usually leave the baby crate up until around 5 months or so. With Obi the crate was up for over a year. He didn't want to sleep on his bed but would always go in the crate. 
When I would lock the door he would lay in front of it and sleep on the hard floor all night. Although it was getting to be a tight squeeze he didn't mind. 

I had to just put the crate away. After a few nights he gave in and slept on his bed and has been there every night since. 

When I took the crate away from Pax he moved to Obi's bed with him. Now he is on his own bed.

I decided to encourage Kep to be in his crate when taking naps. (I think I'll also use @"quirkydog"'s kong idea too) Guess who though he was missing out on something.
My kids used to beg me to lock them in the dog crates. I had to explain why I couldn't do that, and then told them if they could lock themselves in, they would be able to get themselves out and then it would be ok. So they did, with and without GSDs. We had Pillow Pets before Pillow Pets were a thing.
Gotta love 'em.
