I experience the same situation with my dog. He is quiet as a mouse when we are home, but when we leave he scratches his kennel door and makes a howling bark (on and off by fairly consistent). We got a citronella collar and it does keep him quiet, but I think it also makes him concerned because we are gone and he is upset and then he gets stuff sprayed in his face when he tries to call for us. Some of these collars are very sensitive and things like whining or even chewing a bone can set them off. These things can make the fact you leave even more upsetting! Maybe try and find a cheap used collar to try it out to see if it helps, or maybe find one to borrow. Buying new will set you back about $100, so research the brands well to find one that will not trigger needlessly.
