Separation or Confinement puppy whining, crying & howling
Puppies will whine & cry when separated from their owners & left alone, for the first time. The puppy is afraid they is being abandoned by his pack & is sounding the alarm so that they can be rescued. This is most common when a puppy is confined to a tiny space or to a crate. This is perfectly normal dog behavior. But sometimes the sounds are so hideous & loud it scares us & they fear for the puppy's well-being. Every puppy I have put in a crate for the first time has screamed to high heaven! So what ought to you do?

Be pro-active in training your puppy to accept isolation & privacy. Accustom your puppy to being left by herself, even in the event you are home. This will prevent separation anxiety & all the issues that accompany it.

In lots of cases, putting a treat or toy in the crate or pen with the puppy before closing the door will help condition the puppy that it is a fun place to be.

If they starts whining or crying when you leave, don't rush back to let him out or reassure him. In the event you do, the puppy will soon learn that they can control you together with his whining. However, whining, crying & barking continues then they probably is not yet comfortable in his confinement area. Spend a tiny more time with him there. Then when you leave, if they continues whining or howling, give him a loud & stern 'NO!' After they has been calm for a few moments, return & praise him lavishly. Practice leaving & returning several times so they becomes accustomed to your departures & realizes that you are not abandoning him forever. They will see that you will return & there is nothing to worry about. Practice leaving him for longer & longer periods of time.

-When you know that all of your puppy's physical needs are met & you have taken the time to accustom her to isolation, then teach her that whining is unacceptable.

Excessive or Demand Whining & Barking
The reason excessive whining continues is because the dog has learned that whining, crying or barking gets whatever they desires - attention, food, affection. Often what starts out as a demand whining soon becomes an unconscious whining habit..

Day-to-Day Whining
dog puppy trainingIt is vital to understand that sometimes your puppy will whine & vocalize for no apparent reason - from our point of view! They can only wonder what is up with our dog. However, most times our puppy whines for a lovely reason. My puppy whines at the front room window because he is looking for her playmate to come over to our house. This is acceptable, for definite, but within limits. If he whines excessively, he is told to cease. My puppy whines & barks if her treat infested "Have-A-Ball" toy gets stuck in a place where he cannot access it - OK - I am outa my stool to help her get it out - not a controversy - I Love My Puppy! Before you reprimand your puppy for whining, barking & howling, try to receive a handle on why! Perhaps you can fix it!

Health Considerations & Whining
Unusual whining or whining that starts suddenly when it never existed before may be your dog's way of telling you that something is wrong. See your veterinarian right away to be definite no health issues exist.

dog puppy trainingIf your dog is whining or howling when you are at home, either for attention or out of habit, the first step in stopping this is to provide your dog with every day routines of play, exercise & training. Often these special times of undivided attention will cease the dog from whining the remainder of the day. Secondly, pay attention to your dog only when they is calm. Ignore him whenever they begins demanding your attention by whining. Each time you give in to your dog's whining demands, you are training him to continue whining. In case you need a few moments of peace, you can teach the dog to be calm on request. Gently ask your dog to 'Stop Whining.' If they ignores you & continues whining, immediately shout a loud, 'STOP WHINING!'. After a few repetitions, the dog will get the idea & obey the first gentle request of 'Stop Whining,' than get scolded.

So? Ready to get rid of that puppy whining you keep having? give this puppy training a try and the puppy whining will be gone before you know it ^_^
