9 month rescue – separation anxiety + kennel

Hi everyone, looking for some training tips here. I recently adopted a 9 month old puppy who has never had a home and has been dragged from one shelter to another for his entire life. I’m working from home, which has been a godsend, but I’m having a really hard time training him with the kennel in preparation for when I have to return to work. He refuses even to go into his kennel. Treats, pets, kind words and affirmations don’t help, I try to put his food there at mealtime and he waits hours to grab a few pieces, get out, and then eat what he has in his mouth. The few times I was able to bring it in so I could run quick 15-30 minute errands, I came home with a nightmare. He’ll chew everything on the spot, rip the blankets and bed to pieces, bend the metal poles in the kennel, use it as a bathroom (he only has room to lie down though), bark at himself, and drool in puddles for real. and around the kennel. He is a very sweet boy, but I think he is afraid to go in because that was all he knew for the last 9 months. When he leaves the kennel, he is by my side at all times and has to be in the same room as me. I want you to know that you are safe and that you will never have to live such a life again, but everything I have read online has not helped. He recently took him to the top-rated coach in the area and his recommendations aren’t helping either. I do not know what to do.
