Ask your dog why it whines
Most dogs that whine are unhappy and want something they can’t have or someone they don’t get to talk to. You should ask your dog right away what it wants by saying, “What is it you were whining about?”
You may be able to help solve their problem quickly, before they resort to crying or screaming.
If you know how to read your dog, then you will better understand what it is trying to tell you. It could be that they feel hungry, need to go out or want another person to walk or play.
Listening to or observing your dog can also help you determine what makes it angry or unhappy. If you notice it being angry or upset, then take care of those issues first.
Give your dog something to whine about
While most dogs don’t have access to pain receptors in their mouths, you can put a leash on this behavior by giving your dog something to chew on.
Say “ahh” while letting him bite one of his feet or chews.

You want your dog to realize that biting anything is uncomfortable for him. This will also make it very difficult for him to focus on performing whatever action he was doing before.
In addition to making what he wants to do more challenging, holding onto onto an item (chewing it) longer makes it harder for him to let go of it (the thing he wants to bite).
He needs to release the pressure from his jaws to stop himself from grinding his teeth. Holding on too long causes him psychological pain as well as physical harm.
Getting out some chewing gum takes only a second, so try this with any dog who looks like he might be able to handle it. Try putting shampoo or chocolate on a rag and offering it to him. He will sniff it, probably lick it, then give it back to you.
These are things that he will deal with because they are soft and easy to hold. As soon as those signals tell you that he has had enough, simply take the object away from him. By the time he knows not to expect it anymore, it will be gone.
Take your dog to a trainer
There are many reasons why people might whine all day long, from frustration with themselves or their dogs’ behavior to irritation at being around other people or animals.
In order to address these issues effectively, you will need to find what they are in terms of vocal frequencies and patterns. You will then be able to create a plan that works for your specific case.
During this process, they will also look into whether there is a particular reason that makes your dog unhappy (e.g. chewing or pawing).
They will assess how much control you have over this issue by measuring how easily it can be redirected elsewhere in your house.
If you own a business, they may suggest changes to treatments you offer or supplements you sell.

Try giving your dog a treat
If you leave your dog’s whine or bark all day long, it can become very frustrated and scared. Most dogs only produce two tones, one when they are hungry and one when they are annoyed or angry.
If your dog is whining because it is bored or missing activity, treating this behavior as bad habits can make them feel uncomfortable and upset. The best way to prevent that is by teaching them how to ignore their own bodies’ need for exercise and movement.
This helps them focus on something other than listening to what they want and needing sleep or food. These treats do not have to be super expensive; try grabbing some extra water or coffee drinks or making a trip to the gym pay-what-you-want. This shows people who work out that you respect their time and are willing to spend an amount of money on them.
Make these visits fun by bringing friends and trying different things at the gyms + adding variety to your regular routine. There are too many places to list here, but there are so many choices across the world online. Check out a health store such as gymnastics centers, fitness stores, or grocery stores and find ones that offer trainer services and products.
Do not yell at your dog
Even though shouting can be effective in getting your dog to stop whining, it can also hurt them. If you shout then the dog will think that they must always do what their owner shouts at them for doing. This can lead to behavioral issues with your dog.
There are better ways to handle this situation. Try using music to lure your dog out of his “shell”.
If he is already out of his shell, going to him directly may help make him feel less afraid. You can read more about handling dominant dogs here
It is very important to remember that no matter what species you are dealing with, they are still animals who are sensitive to pain. No matter how ferocious or scared a dog appears, they are still creatures whose body systems work just like yours.
For most breeds, a minute variation in timing or technique is all it takes to calm a dog down. A small amount of shock-causing behavior such as snapping my fingers or yelling could eventually dissipate into playfulness or affection once I have control over the animal.
Do not hit or punish your dog
Even though it may feel good to punch your dog when they whine, you will only make matters worse. When a dog is in pain, barking and whining is their way of trying to express that pain.
If you have already taken these steps and your dog is still whiny, then perhaps some different methods are needed. You can try talking to your dog, giving him/her a treat, etc.
Until the cause of the whining is found, do not use any discipline techniques with your dog.
