My fiance works in construction and it's not consistent...some days he works for weeks at a time and there are others when he's home. He's been home this week (his first week with us) so that helps in getting used to his environment. The only problem is that we are afraid that he will bark like crazy when we go to work...and next week my fiance has to go to work. We tried placing him in the bathroom with a gate while we are home but he goes really crazy...we tried the kitchen and same response. I'm afraid to let him free roam b/c he doesn't do the potty well (I found a thread dealing with that and think we can now work with the right tools). What should we do?
