I found that the fewer stimulating things in my dog's environment, the better she does. So when I leave the house, I close the blinds. I also leave her out of her kennel. For her, the kennel seemed to create more anxiety. Leaving her out where she can relax in her bed has helped her drastically.
I've had a similar response; my dog responds best by creating a calming environment in the house. I also don't make a big deal about leaving. I can see he gets anxious when I grab my keys and put shoes on, but I found that if I calmly walk out the door, it works better than making a big fuss.
