When Cey was a puppy, every time I had to leave him (at first), I would leave him a long-lasting special treat that he never got any other time, like a puppy Kong stuffed with kibble with peanut butter or cream cheese, or a little frozen bit of meat. Same idea as the treat trick, but longer lasting. By the time he noticed I was leaving, I was already gone, and it actually gave him something to look forward to when I was getting ready to go. Now, sometimes I scatter tiny treats around the kitchen when I leave, or in the car if I am leaving him alone in the car, for him to find, but I don't have to do it every time as he is quite comfortable being left alone.
