One of our dogs hates being in a crate, but he is a very good dog and can be left alone in the house with n problems, he has never chewed on a single thing. If she is already 10 and not used to it may be hard to get her used to it, so you will have to do it slowly, you can try treats that are healthy, and wont affect her weight. Also if you give her bones or something to chew on that could help.

Personally I wouldnt crate her if she is this upset about it and if she is not destructive. But that is me. Have you tried flower essences for her anxiety? Having moved its also tough on them and flower essences can help with that too, the rescue remedy could help. You could also try a diffuser with essential oil of lavender or chamomile, they are both great to help relax.
