Brighamb - Baillif works for some sort of training facility, hence "22 dogs".

If your pup is whining when you aren't engaged with her, she could be attempting to get you to stop what you are doing (that doesn't include her) and focus on her. In other words, she is being a brat.

I'd try to give her something to do while you are working. It could be a bully stick, or asking her to stay in a specific spot and rewarding that behavior. You could also practice quiet kennel behavior during the times you need to get work done.

The idea is, you are the leader. If you aren't going to engage with your pup, she needs to settle quietly until you say it's time to play. Only you know the best way to do that with your pup as you know your pup the best.
