How much exercise are they getting before you leave? I would take them for a good hours hard play and then see if that will quiet them down. Also are they crated or do they free roam your house? Is this a new behaviour from them or have they always done it?

Some ppl will leave the TV on as well so they dogs think that someone is still home. As a last resort I would look into antibark vibration or citronella spray collars and see if that will help stop the behaviour.

We bought the little $9 bark off unit (Walmart, or wherever really) for Zoe when I was living in an apartment. It actually worked for her, she learned that barking made the unit put out an icky noise (that only she could hear) and she stopped barking as much because of it. My roommate at the time said that Zoe would still whine very quietly at times -- my guess is she figured out what frequencies the unit would actually pick up ;).

Hope this helps...
