Most dogs can be “alone” and not hurt themselves and will not harm other family members just by being lonely.
There are two methods that dogs have to be separated from their owners when separated from a family member: the social (non-physical) method (known as “doggy-backing”) and the “separate but equal” method. The social method is common for small breeds, but the method for large breeds and some breeds of dogs requires the assistance of a skilled dog trainer. A skilled dog trainer can teach an owner to separate the dog from its owner, or teach the owner to return the dog to his or her other owner. These methods should be used only as a last resort where “nothing can be done, your other dog is likely to break free, or the dog you own is in serious danger of becoming injured or killed from “separate but equal” behavior while separated from you” or “your dog is likely to cause harm to you or your family by biting people or other animals or from attacking people or other animals” (TSA Publication 709, Domestic Dogs and Canine Health and Safety).
Most dog owners have to start the separation process after a few days. This is because a dog should be separated from its owner at least once daily until it becomes able to stand on its own. In the absence of this step, owners may have to separate dogs from their owners at several days a week or even several times every other day. Many dogs have a tendency to be “stuck” in their owner’s arms, and a dog that has not been separated from its owner or its owner’s other dog often shows signs of physical aggression toward humans. Therefore, these dogs usually need to be separated from their owners each time they stand up and they also need to be separated every time they leave their owner’s arms, even if they are not standing on their own.

When can the human get separated from a dog?
When a dog is left unattended, most owners have to begin the separation process a day or two after the dog leaves the owner’s arms to give the dog enough time to get used to being alone. This separation process will continue until the dog is able to stand on its own; or at least until the
