My little guy has quite the habit of whining a lot. I have grown up with dogs and have even assisted a local trainer with training, I am stumped with him. He is still very young, only 9 weeks, but he is not happy anywhere but with me and I mean WITH me..on the couch, carrying him. I wait till he is calm before I pick him up, I have been crate training him, and basically I just leave him completely alone until he stops, once he stops and is with me he will snuggle up to me and whine. The vet says he looks good, they haven't found anything wrong.
