Needless to say me neighbors are not happy. I have a great little english cocker spaniel that is about 18 months old. I adpoted him 5 weeks ago. I can understand all of his faults with lack of training because I am his 4th owner in his short little life. He has been passed around alot. I am trying to correct them as best as I can. One thing that I need to correct quickly is his barking. I have put baby gates up in my kitchen and that is where I keep him during the day when I am at work. His bed and toys are in there with him. He barks all day long and pees and poops and walks in it by the time I get home. He and my kitchen are a mess I am constantly cleaning and bathing. I work a typical work day and feed and walk him in the morning and evening. Although he goes potty in the morning during his walk, he still goes again during the day. He barks from the time I leave in the morning until I walk in the door in the evening. How can I make this situation better???
