I have an 4 month old samoyed puppy (got him at a little under 3 months) and we have 2 crates for him- one plastic travel and one larger wire crate. We meant for the wire crate to be his 'den', and only left the plastic one out by accident just cuz we forgot to move it, and he gravitated WAY more toward that one. I guess because he's still small, and it's darker in there? We tried training him to like the bigger crate for a while and he just did NOT like being locked in there, he would bark and whine the whole time. But we noticed that on car rides he didn't whine at all in the travel crate, so we started using that to crate train him and it worked like a charm. Now that he's used to it, he doesn't even whine at all when he's in the wire crated.

He still doesn't seem to think of either as his 'home' though, haha. He has other favorite spots in the house, and only goes in there occasionally on his own.
