With proper training any dog should be able to be crated as necessary.

You can't crate a dog that you haven't exercised and expect him to tolerate it.

Dogs need exercise, especially when they are young. The more exercise a dog is given the easier it is to train said dog. Working dogs need a lot of exercise. Sporting/hunting dogs also need a lot of exercise.

I have a husky, it is recommended to give her at least 2 hours of exercise per day, that's a huge time commitment. When choosing a dog choose wisely.
