    It’s not separation anxiety, per se. It is the fact that Siberian huskies were bred to work in teams, and live in packs. When you’re gone, where is the dog’s pack?
    He is bored, and lonely. He needs a companion (not necessarily YOU — but a companion. That is why this is not separation anxiety).
    Your options:
    1. Crate him when you’re gone. Give him something to chew on. The chew/kong/toy will keep him busy, and the crate will stop him from destroying your house.
    2. Exercise him heavily before you leave. A tired dog isn’t a bored dog. A tired dog is a good dog.
    3. Find him a companion. This might be a dog day-care facility, or you might be able to make arrangements with a neighbor to keep him with their dog (if they get along) during the day.
    This breed does best when they have a buddy of some kind. If you cannot provide him with one in your absence, then your only other course is to keep him occupied and contained.

    Siberian Huskies are a high-energy canine requiring lots of exercise.
    And Siberian Huskies bond easily with their humans and when they do, they do not want to be separated from them. They long for their companions and, if left alone, some Huskies will try to move and destroy any obstacle in the way of a possible escape route. A crate can provide a familiar place to rest and wait. Crates help to relieve separation anxiety by offering the security and comfort of a den.
    Make sure he gets walks every day! 🙂
    Well hoped this helped you! 🙂

    This will require training.
    First, when you leave the house, don’t make a big fuss. Leave plenty of toys for him to play with. Now, during the training session, leave your home (close the door) as if you were leaving. Wait about 5-10 seconds and come back in the house and reward him. You’ll need to do this over and over slowing increasing the time that you are “away”.
    If during these training sessions, if he starts to bark, open the door and say “no”, then close the door. Wait your desired time period then re-enter your home.
