New puppy behavior?
When I try to confine my new puppy in a safe space so I can either leave the house or do something in the house that prevents me from watching her, my puppy carries on non stop by jumping, whining, crying, and just acting very agitated for as long as I am out. this can go on for an hour or more. I am afraid that this behavior will damage her physically in some way. I know this is what she does because I have a camera on her. In addition, she often poops during this time of agitation and she does not poop entirely on the potty pad. She does not seem to be able to control where she poops, and part of it lands on the floor outside the potty. I'd like to know if this is common behavior for a young puppy (I've only had her for 2 days) and if it is possible that she will calm down and adjust to being left alone in a safe space without me. and if she will eventually be able to poop entirely on a potty pad. She is 3 mo old. Except for these things, she is as sweet as can be. She has already learned her name and has figured out how to push her way out of a gated area. Any ideas on what I can do? Today, I left her in my large bathroom with a bed, toys, water and a potty pad and music, but she did not calm down the entire time I was out. I have also tried a playpen, she does not like that either and tries to climb out and then poops and soils herself and the pen. I an afraid that she will hurt herself trying to climb out. What can I do?
