Dog Is Whining and Fidgety

Puppy Always Whines

If your dog is whining and fidgety all day, you have a big problem. If your dog seems to be whining only during one particular event or place, your job is half over. You will be able to train it that much quicker because you know where the problem is. Most folks do not know why their dog is whining and that is what takes so much of their time. If you do not know what the problem is, there is no way you can solve it. It is as simple as that.

The spark of the problem may not be with the dog though. Not surprisingly, many of the problems encountered over the years, always come back to the owner’s fault. This does not mean that the owner is a bad owner, rather it just means the owner cannot properly recognize the causes of the dog’s behavioral issues. A good owner will learn to recognize these signs early and take action to prevent anything else from happening.

What if your puppy always whines when you are about to get into the car to go for a ride? What does this mean? Well if your dog likes to go in car rides, it means your dog is whining in anticipation of the event is looking forward to it. However if your dog begins to dig a tunnel under the house when he sees you coming to get him for the ride, your dog has anxiety about the car ride. This issue will need to be solved in a gradual and slow manner.

Your dog is going to whine for a number of reasons. It may want attention, food, to go outside, use the bathroom, and the list could go on and on. When feeding your puppy, remember to use a stainless steel dish. Never use plastic bowls or dishes. This is just a rule that you should become familiar with. Remember to feed your dog a proper and balanced diet as well. It needs that right amount of protein in order to have a shiny coat and a health coat at that. Proper nutrition is essential to a dog’s well being.

Some breeds of dogs are more prone to whining anyways. It depends on how well trained your animal is from the start. Out of respect for yourself, the dog, and your neighbors, it is your duty to try and train your dog to become a well behaved pet. You will be thankful to yourself later on in life. There is nothing worse than having an untrained dog for 20 years. Try and establish a good set of communication between you and your pup.

A lot of these problems arise from common sense issues. It is amazing how many people do not pick up on why their dog is whining. Other popular problems include the use of a crate. Many dogs do not like to be put in a crate at all. Whining will pick up when this happens and might cease to stop unless they can come out. One of the last problems is at least helpful. A dog will whine if it has to go outside. This is a good thing because you do not want your puppy to relieve itself on your brand new rug.
