Unhappy out of control puppy help

hi everyone, my yorkie poo puppy is out of control. she always is trying to play with the other dog who does not like to play. whenever i let her outside to use the bathroom she always runs away. i always put her on the leash but she won't let me pick her up. she eats almost everything she sees like, plastic, fuzz balls, and mostly things i can't identity. i have a nice playpen but there isn't any room for it. please help this is urgent.

How much exercise does she get?
How much time do you spend with her?
How do you try to train her?
How old is she?
How long have you had her?

Just some starting questions.

Have you trained a "leave it" or "drop it" command? Work on that. Get that down SOLID. Then (and ONLY then) you can start using it when she gets ahold of things she will eat that you can't identify. I'm not sure what you can do about fuzz, but whatever the bits of plastic are, perhaps pick them up or vacuum?

Dogs are not good at generalization. So if you spend all your training time outside, Lily might very well think "Sit" only means "sit if I am in the grass," not "sit wherever I am." So be sure to work on 'leave it' in the house.

If she is scared when she is on a leash, have you tried counter conditioning that with food? Showing her that leashes are not bad, that when she is on a leash you are not suddenly scary?

Can't help you with the playpen if there is, as you say, insufficient room. Could you use it to barricade off a corner somewhere instead, if you want a break?

Do you ever take Lily for walks? That might help, too.

What does your other dog do?
I generally let my dogs work out their issues. That said, if I do feel I need to step in (really only happens if one is being incredibly pushy) then I simply interrupt and then redirect the dog to a more acceptable activity.

Make sure that your puppy has planty of fun toys to keep her busy. Be sure to supervise all interaction so that you can step in if needed. Also make sure that your adult has a nice puppy-free area to go to for some relaxation.

Keep her on leash so so doesn't have the opportunity to run away.
If she doesn't like to be picked up, then don't, at least for now. Start working on some handling exercises (videos below) and for the time being just let her walk.

Ditto Sundog's advice on this!

What would you like to use the playpen for?
If its would be a place to keep your puppy when you are not home then I would just use a crate or even a small room. You can use a baby gate or just close a door so that she has more space.

I know when I got Sam, after having a great, obedient, sensitive GSD for 10 yrs, I forgot that I had to puppy proof the house, just like you have to do with a toddler. If it is within their reach, they will get it.
I learned my lesson again.
Always offer a toy or chew in exchange for what they have in their mouths.
And do supervise if things get out of hand with the older dog. But they do usually do settle things between themselves.

Good - I replied initially hoping the experts here would see your post and they have. You have some great advise here, especially the leave/drop it one. Something new to clicker with your dog.
