    You could train him to be left alone. So leave for a few minutes come back in while he's calm reward for being good the build up the time while he's still happy to be left alone. Crating can help too

    When me moved house our new neighbors told us the dogs were howling when we were out, at our previous house they never did this.
    We had always left them in the conservatory with access to the garden, so was doing the same in the new house.
    So what we do now is leave them in the front room with the curtains closed and with no distractions and being where we normally are seems to work and not a peep since.

    I would start slowly - just leave the room for 1 minute gradually build it up over several days, then start going out the front door.

    Also desensitize him to you going out - put on coats and sit and watch TV, pick up keys and carry them around, so certain actions don't trigger anxiety.

    Also it might be Worth investing in a DAP diffuser or collar.
