Yup, I agree with BurningRiver.....a true SA is pretty extreme. You're not there yet, so try the crate. Many (maybe most) boxers will chew and destroy stuff when left alone. They may be bored, they may just feel like it. It's just the way they are. They do it because they can! A real bad SA case may be uncrateable. I was unable to crate my boy because of it, so I had to work around it with gates and what not. He's much better adjusted now but believe me, the crate is the way to go for the peace of mind. I personally don't believe in crating any dog for long hours though so I guess it just depends on how often you're gone.
