The best thing you could do is to:

1. Take him to training asap to establish dominance again. Until then, establish safe spaces like a crate and the bathroom (if he does enjoy laying in there) and off-limit spaces like a couch or even your bed. 

2. Ignore his barking. Every time you jump when he barks, it reinforces that barking will get him what he wants. Ignore him, even if he is barking on the top of his lungs. Dont yell at him (it will make it worse), just ignore. If he becomes destructive because you are ignoring him, a finger in the face, rolling him on to his back, and a forceful and stern voice are always a great way to discipline. If he has an accident, same thing. 

3. Try new techniques like clicker training for the dog park. Experiment.

Good luck!
