Would a shiba inu be a breed that barks if left a lone while i am at school? When i get back from school and in the morning however i will be able to play and walk with the dog.

A Shiba Inu would probably just bark when it sees someone coming, whether you are at school or not unless it's taught otherwise.

Shibas are known for the Shiba scream. You must start isolation training immediately to prevent this disobedient act. They cry for you to come back and pay attention to them, just like a human baby, if you respond they know how to get you in the room and continue to cry if you leave them alone. My pup is almost 19 weeks, I started his training immediately. For the first few days hewould cry for about an hour, and then he would stop. About a week into his training he cries for about 30 sec's and stops. I created a schedule for him, I used it for a few days, and now I go by his actions. Like wandering by the front door. Remember puppies have smaller bladders.

Here is his schedule for an example that you can go by or create your own. 7am potty time 7:30am Breakfast 9:00am potty time 12:00pm Lunch 12:05pm crate time 15-20 min 12:20pm- 12:25pm potty time 1:00pm isolationism to 1 to 2 hours.... Anywhere in-between these times is free time (inside or out) 6:00pm Dinner time 6:05pm crate time 15-20 min 6:20pm-6:25pm potty time 8:00pm potty time No water in-between 11:30-11:45pm potty time Tongue wet in-between 12:00pm sleep.

My Shiba is 16 weeks and he barks very infrequently or hardly ever. He makes other noises when playing with our cats. He cries for very short period of time when put in a pen or crate. I started training him at 6 weeks.
