Default Preventing Seperation Anxiety

Hello all,

I have recently watched this British documentary where they did a test on 40 dogs and as a result it appears that majority of dogs are suffering from separation anxiety. Appears to be a common issue among dogs who naturally want to spend their time with their pack/owner, but due to daily work and so on, we are forced into being separated and spending time alone!

I wonder if there is a common practice we ought to do when bringing a new pup home. Is there a way to prevent such anxiety in dogs other than teaching calm behavior? At which point do you start spending some time away from your new puppy at home!?

Lord, help me be the person my dog thinks I am!
