Question Preventing separation anxiety?

What do you do to prevent separation anxiety? I plan on teaching puppy some moments of isolation/quiet in a closed crate with chews in a different room. And what else is there specifically to do/train?

My very first dog (who passed away at 18 y/o a year ago) had some crazy separation anxiety, so I'm paranoid of unwittingly getting that again, especially with a bigger dog.

While they might not always be right, and you might not always agree, you can still find lessons to be learned from just about everyone.

We just never made a big deal about leaving or coming home. Usually nonchalantly sat a treat on his bed and slipped out the door.
