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!?

Regards,
