Obviously, pet anxiety symptoms can really interfere with normal day-to-day life. One of the best ways to get rid of anxiety attacks in your puppy is to get him used to your release. This can be easily achieved by pretending to leave. Grab your keys and start putting on your shoes, coat, makeup, etc. 

You may find that this is when your dog's symptoms begin to appear. She may start to whine, get nervous, or even cry. Whatever symptoms you have, don't pay attention. Just go to the door and then stop, stay calm and go back to what you were doing before.

If you practice the above method several times a day, your dog will find that he has nothing to worry about. Eventually, over time, your pet will forget its worries and get used to the thought of your separation.
