|From what I gather from your posts, it seems that the separation anxiety is not severe. I'm guessing that you are not coming home to find everything in your house destroyed. Right? So for mild separation anxiety, I think you're on the right track with the kongs. Also toys and other things to keep the dog occupied will help.
Ultimately, though, I think your dog will simply get used to it. The beginning will be the hardest, but eventually they will learn. They learn that you always come back, so they learn to relax. It does take some time. I think with Loki it took only a few days, but with Jujube, it might have taken a couple months. I used to worry a lot about it especially with Jujube, but I sort of think that there will be an inevitable small amount of suffering on the dog's part. Just give it some time. I'm sure it'll be fine with some time.
