My dog whine and bark after 15min of being left alone.

My dog is whinning and barking when I leave the apartment. He is left alone in his crate. He does not start this behavior until about 15 min after I leave the apartment. I know this because I have a security camera and it records his activities while I'm gone. After about 20~30 min of whinning and barking, he does fall asleep. He gets enough exercise. I make sure that he is tired when I am leaving him alone. Please help. Thank you.

This is called separation anxiety. Maybe if he was not going to be in a crate all day, he would not cry. Is there any way you can let him be uncrated and see what happens? Or get him a friend so that he will not be lonely all day with nothing to do while you are away at work? ^_^
