Dog anxiety, whether it's "separation anxiety" or general skittishness, will likely put your dog in a dangerous situation sooner or later.
Lightning, fireworks or large crowds may cause him to bolt into traffic.
If he suffers from separation anxiety when you're away, his behavior may cause physical problems from ingested buttons torn from clothes, swallowed shoelaces or perhaps even jagged pieces of a chewed CD.
And you'll find it hard to like him when you come home and find the house torn apart.
Help is available. I don't recommend medicating your dog. There are more benign ways of calming dog anxiety, and they don't come with unintended side effects.
You'll find any dog anxiety treatment (conventional or alternative) far more effective if you combine it with some behavior modification.
If you know why your dog is acting out, the how of dealing with it becomes easier.
Dogs aren't unthinking animals. Yes, they do think. They just don't think the same way we do.
