1. Whining or crying
Whining is another form of canine communication. Dogs are trying to communicate that they need something, perhaps they want to go outside or they’re hungry.
If dogs get what they want by whining, they’ll learn whining produces a favored response from the owner. If the dog sees that if he whines, he gets a nice long walk, he will whine to get one every time.
To break the cycle, ignore whining for superfluous attention at all costs. Reward him when his whining has stopped for over three seconds.
