My girlfriend and I recently got a new puppy, an 11 week old Kelpie x Koolie.
We brought him home on Monday and it is currently Thursday (of the same week) and he is constanty barking when left alone or it is time for bed.
We have had him locked up in the laundry at night and also when we have to go out for work (which is about a maximum of 3 hours alone time) and have had him in the backyard pen today while my girlfriend has been doing things inside. We find that once he is left alone he will constantly bark.
I am wondering if this is normal and if so what we can do to combat this?
