If he has been reliable about not soiling his crate for this long and then it started, I think it is MUCH more likely that it is some sort of tummy upset. I do NOT believe he is soiling his crate because he doesn't like it. That makes no sense... He STILL ends up being locked in there, but now he's in there with his own mess!
I think a trip to the vet is in order, along with a stool sample. I've never heard off "lactose intolerance, per se, in dogs, but they can CERTAINLY have problems with dairy in general. For most dogs it's fine, but for some, like my Kodi, dairy of any sort can be a real problem.
