Recently I over heard some of my human's friends say that kennels are scary places for dogs but my human, being the great trainer she is, assured them that this was false. "In fact," she would say, "kennels are great for dogs if used properly and not used to punish or serve as an all day enclosure." I listened while she explained that dogs are den animals and feel more safe and secure when allowed to sleep in an enclosed area that they can call their own. I know this is true except for the den part because I like the dining room and kitchen just as much as the den, but whatever. Pass it on.
