There is no reason for any dog to be destructive. The old saying of "a tired dog is a good dog" is really true. If you are leaving your dog for the day, a long walk before you go is important. Having dog toys available may help also along with regular playtime. If there is something your dog seems fixated on doing, such as chewing a table leg, spraying bitter apple, available at most pet store, can help extinguish the habit. When I leave the house for a period of time I toss my dog a couple of treats. He is now happy to see me go and jumps up when he hears me pick up my car keys! Just saying a positive with leaving may help too.
