Whining seems to be a part of some canine’s behavior. Most dog owners do not really know why their dogs are whining. And therefore, they do not understand how they can keep their dog from whining. There are very simple ways on how to stop your dog from whining. In order to do so you will have to figure out the cause.
Fear and discomfort causes some dogs to whine. Some dogs just can’t stand to be left alone. That is why they whine. This behavior just needs some training. As the owner, you can train your dog by leaving it alone at a room after you play with it. Make sure he’s comfortable before leaving. It is expected that the dog will whine once you do that. Let a little time pass and then calmly come back. Until it becomes comfortable in being alone, you can do the training again and again. This may take some time but this will help to ease the whining. Always remember to give your dog a reward when it does something good.
Sometimes, dogs whine to get attention. Your pet could be whining because it is hungry. Maybe, your canine wants to play or spend time with you. The most effective solution to this problem is by giving your dog the attention he needs. Don’t let your canine dictate what you do. You do not need to play with your pet every time he wants to. He does not need to be fed when he “thinks he is hungry”. You just have to give time to your dog. Allot some time for you to play, walk and do things together with your dog. Schedule its meals and do not forget these schedules. In this way, you get some bonding time with your pet and you are able to stop your dog from whining.
If whining is not part of your dogs daily routine then something is probably up. The best thing you could do is to contact a veterinarian. Never hurt your dog because you might only add up to the pain it is feeling.
Dog whining could be very irritating. However, you should understand that a dog whines because it is a natural behavior for your pet. This is another method for your dog to try to express himself. Your dog could be telling you that it is hungry, lonely, scared, in pain or anything. There is a reason why dogs whine and dog owners should be able to interpret what their pet is trying to say. A good way to stop the whining is to really listen to your dog, learn to really understand their needs.
