Default Separation anxiety? How can I help him?

My new pup is 2 months old. He is solely an outside dog and he already super attached (which I love), but everytime it's time for bed and I leave him in the garage alone he whines for at least 20 min and goes nuts like I'm abandoning him. I've given him toys and we've established that the yard and garage is his area but he won't get comfortable at night. During the day I'm always outside with him (playing, going for walks) and if I'm inside with my son or cleaning or something he will watch me or run around or take naps and is always just fine. It's just at night that's a problem. I was thinking maybe he's afraid of the dark but he was outside in the dark since he was born with his parents and siblings. What can I do to help him not be so nervous when it's bedtime?
