How old is your pup? How long have you had him? Just curious, and those answers can help everyone with your question.
The biggest thing that jumps out at me is your crating of him. Absolutely keep it up, but DO NOT let him out unless it is on your terms and with him quiet and calm. Anything else lets him know that he is in charge. The crate is a great place for a "time out"- i.e. placing a pup there without anger or frustration to let them calm dow. It is important to show no emotion when crating your pup for a "time out"- you want it to always be a positive place to be. And again, don't let them out until they are quiet, calm, and you are ready for them. You may want to do some remedial crate training on him to make it easier, but don't back down!
Good luck!
