Mya - my new puggle puppy - is extremely social (although shy and timid around new people & animals) and is having difficulty adjusting to ever spending time alone. Until I acquired her a couple weeks ago, she'd always had people and/or litter mates around. Any time I put her in the dog carrier she begins to whine, cry and howl hysterically, bites and claws at the gate, and salivates so badly that she appears to have streamers of drool running from the corners of her mouth. It saturates her fur, toys, and anything else I put in there with her. A treat-filled kong sometimes helps but only for a little while. Also, even though I'd taken her outside just before putting her in the crate, she soils the crate immediately. She displays the same behaviors if I leave her alone in my room - not in a crate - while I go to the bathroom or to the kitchen for a couple minutes to make dinner. I've tried getting her adjusted gradually, and with treat incentives, but she freaks out the moment she loses access to me or others. Any ideas?
