Why Is My Dog Whining? What Can I Do?
Reasons Your Dog is Whining
When a puppy is born, one of the first things it learns to do is whine. The mom teaches the puppies that whining gives them what they want because when they are hungry, they whine and she comes to feed them and if they get lost from the rest of the puppies, they will whine for the mom to come and get them. The puppy carries this skill with it when it becomes a member of your family as you become its new pack.so easy if you are getting an adult dog that is already set in its ways with its whining habits. Some people find that his or her dog is whining more than necessary and worry that something is wrong.
What Should I Do?
The first thing to do when you find that your dog seems to be having problems with whining too much is to rule out any medical problems. A quick trip to the vet would tell you if there is anything physically wrong with your pooch. If nothing is wrong, you need to work through the whining so that you can get it under control.
Dogs will whine if they are scared, lonely, sick, and hungry, so once you rule out illness and being hungry, your dog is most likely going through separation anxiety. If this is the case, you can work with your dog on this and help him to put an end to his worry. You can start with doing some temporary separation tests to show him that all will be ok while you are away.putting your dog in the other room by itself. Check-in on him every so often (but not while he is whining). This will show him that you will return and that he is just fine. You can do this little by little, stretching out the time until your pooch is ok with you being gone for a long period of time. This process really doesn't take that long and with positive reinforcement, your pooch will be wagging his tail in no time at all.
