It is probably a good time for you to start taking each dog out with you alone, and start them getting use to it, just for short periods of time...teach them that sometimes it happens that one is left home alone.
I found with my two, each of them likes the alone time with me. I take Casper for short walks 5-15 minutes alone, and with Missy I take her to dog training for dog shows without Casper. The first time I left, I hated leaving Casper alone, but I gave him a Kong with his favorite filling and left, we were gone about 1 1/2 hrs. He was fine, and Missy loves the time alone with me.
Missy now gets really excited when she knows we are going to leave together and Casper will stay home alone.
I had dogs for years, this is my first time having two dogs at the same time, so I am learning also, but I think alone time with each one is important to bonding to the dog and making them feel loved and important.
