Wow, George is a beauty. Nothing really to add to Mikey T, but my advice would be to always try and remain calm (even if you have to go into another room to vent). Even a slight raise of my voice gets my dog wound up, whereas calm direction usually gets a response. Don't fret too badly about housebreaking, just be consistent and I would recommend the bell technique. Our pup Stanley picked this up quickly at about 5 months and has had only 1 accident in the 8 months since then. It seems to be the best communication method for the dog to let you know it has to go. Barking could mean a number of things, but bell means potty (or at least "outside"). Good luck, and read everything Mike sent, it takes a while but you and your dog will both be better for it.
