My 3 year old mutt (rescue) had separation anxiety
She was terrible. I couldn't even leave the house for 30 seconds without her freaking out! I tried all the traditional methods of conquering her fear of being left alone and NOTHING helped .... until I got a 2nd dog. Now she is peaceful and calm when I leave. Dogs are pack animals and can be very upset when left alone. I found that adding to our pack was the only way to fix it.
That being said, not all dogs are the same so there may be other options for you. Keep at it and good luck!
