|Oh when I started reading, I thought you were going to say someone reported you at the hotel. I had that happen once. We were staying at a hotel that allows pets, and we got a message that said someone had reported that our dog was barking. Well, she was never left unattended in the room first of all, second of all we had all been gone from the hotel, out to dinner, (including the dog) for about an hour and a half during the time the person had complained! They said it had to be us because we were the only ones with a dog registered in the hotel. It turned out someone else had a dog but they had "snuck in" their dog instead of telling the hotel they had a dog. Which was pointless because the hotel allowed dogs and didn't charge extra or anything so there was no reason for them to sneak their dog in.
Why would you take a dog with you if you can't bring them in? Well for example in this thread-- didn't the OP say they were traveling? Most hotels do not allow you to leave a dog alone in the hotel room, so what do you do if you need to go to the store?
I had a dog (terrier) who barked in the car. He didn't only bark if left alone, though, and he generally was never left alone for more than a few minutes if ever. He was not "poorly socialized". While the car was moving he would constantly whine from excitement. He would also bark from excitement whenever we started parking, or if the car was switched into reverse. He knew that when you switch into reverse it usually means you're going to park the car and he will be able to get out and have fun.
If I left the car, he would get upset because I was leaving without him and would bark until I returned(this was a different bark from his "excited" bark). He'd do this whether he was alone in the car or the car was full of people. He'd do the same thing if I walked away from him in other situations and he couldn't follow me, such as if I handed the leash to a family member and walked away past the distance his leash could reach. He was fine with other people walking away, it was just if I walked away.
