"As your dog sees it, the crate is a room of his very own - a "security blanket." The crate helps to satisfy the "den instinct" inherited from his den-dwelling ancestors and relatives. Your pet will feel secure, not frustrated once accustomed to his crate." -The Humane Society
"Ummm...I am a tad bit freaked out by these tiny humans invading my quiet den."
"Alert! Alert! I need to be evacuated stat!"
