Puppy barking! Ugh!

I am literally so nervous and distraught over my new maltese puppy. He barks so much when we are not home - I am so afraid the landlord will kick us out. I have taken 2 weeks off of work, but what else can I do? I am afraid if I leave him for 8 hrs. he will bark all day! He never barks when we are home, by the way. I have tried a radio, a sound machine, a clock, a tape of me. What I bought now is one of those electronic machines that emit a high pitched sound each time he barks. Do you think that'll work? Anyone had any luck with them? In every other way, he is such a good dog - paper trained, etc. PLEASE PLEASE HELP - I AM LOSING MY MIND! Thanks, Ruben
