Before leaving my house I change into outdoor footware and leave the indoor shoes by the garage door. Mica then takes the slippers/shoes/boots to one of her beds. Recently I gave her my old slippers figuring she would be satisfied with them. Not so as she currently has the slippers and one of my boots in her bed. She never chews or damages the footware but I feel badly that she still feels anxious when I leave. Any suggestions?

google separation anxiety dog training.

There is no short and sweet answer, no easy fix. There are fixes, which involve both exercising the dog so he is tired and sleeps rather than getting bored and then getting more anxious. It also involves training the dog to accept the behavior, and it also involves you not making your leaving a big thing.

It isn't something that can be communicated in a one page answer.
