I had similar problems with my labradoodle Kumo and his crate. He really didn't like it. We managed to get him over it by spending some time in the bedroom (where the crate is), and letting him roam around the room. Eventually, he just went in there on his own to lay down. We let him lay there for a while, then got up and played with him. Of course we repeated this a couple times. I think the trick is to make sure that sometimes he has the option to voluntarily go into the crate. Then he'll start to think of it as his den. At night he still doesn't want to go into the crate but when I start pushing him that direction he gives in very easily and walks in himself.

I'd watch him very carefully is you don't trust him not to chew or pee inside yet.
