How to overcome extreme FOMO in order to walk littermates separately

Here`s another great article:

My family has 2x 3yr old huskies that have always gotten VERY overexcited when leaving the house or when people come over. We went to puppy school for a few months when they were young, so they are trained and do very well at home and dog parks. They’ve made a lot of progress in the last few months as I’ve focused training on it and are much calmer at the start of our walks. However, once I get to the end of the street they get super overexcited again.

I want to start walking them separately but, as the title says, they get extreme jealousy/FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). I don’t think this is separation anxiety, at least in the classical sense, but I could be wrong– they have no problem being separated and generally prefer their alone time. If one hears the other doing something interesting, however, whoever’s left behind will yell and cry until they can see what’s going on.

I’m really at a loss for how to start walking them separately as my family generally refuse to help with them, so I don’t have anyone to distract one while I get the other out of the house. Is distraction the only answer ? If so, how can I distract one dog while I’m not there ?

(My family have neglected the dogs since I moved out of home and once covid is over I intend to take them back with me, so I’m trying really hard to train and do right by them before that.)

Tl;dr: I want to start walking my huskies separately but they get extreme FOMO when left out of activities and I don’t know where to start.
