Sudden Puppy Anxiety
I'm desperate to help my 13 week old Pomeranian, Chihuahua, Corgi mix with her anxiety. We brought her home at 11 weeks and she was a happy and lovely addition to our family. It seems as though she all of a sudden now hates me and hides either under the couch or in her crate all day, she licks and chews at her paws and seems generally depressed
I've taken her to the vet for her second shots and he says there's nothing physically wrong with her, so it must be emotional. A few days ago while taking off her harness she yelped considerably loud in fear and since then she's been super timid towards me. I don't think I hurt her by any means, but it seems like she now thinks I'm a terrible person. The vet suggested that we keep the harness on to get her used to it, so I've left it on but I'm scared we're only making it harder for her to get past it.
Is there hope for an anxious puppy like this to get over her anxiety? I'm so sad, she was previously so happy but now it seems for the last couple days she's just not at all. I want her to have a lovely, happy and joyful life with us and I'm not sure she wants to be here! Any help would be so greatly appreciated.
