Default Whine Whine Whine!

My girl is turning 5 months old this week and I am learning so much about her, but this still baffles me. She whines when her sister is outside being walked. She whines when her and her sister are in the car together. She whines when she wants to go out. But most of the time she whines and I can't figure out why. Is this normal? Sometimes she cries or whines so badly it sounds like she is being tortured.

Thanks for your help.

Congratulations!! You have a German Shepherd!!

Teach her "Quiet". Use a clicker and treats. Click and reward when she's quiet. Teach her some other cue for going outside. Some people use a bell that the dog rings. If she's whining when her sister is out being walked then distract her. She's either jealous or maybe having some separation anxiety.

just whining-wait till you get a BIG bark when you think you want to sleep in-a big groan when you put away the toy and a yowr-thht-mumble-groan-flop down on floor temper tantrum.Unless it is out of control try not to laugh and ignore and turn your back and walk away.WARNING laughing=applause to a smart GSD.

HAHA got to love the GSD for this. Nitro is not so bad, but he has got worse since we got his "sister" 3 yrs ago. She has BAD separation anxiety, but it's only when Nitro isn't around, she's so bonded to him, she can go out without him but if he is out she Screams!! forget whining, that would be bliss!

Definitely teach the quiet, it's the best thing they can learn in my opinion. Even if we do love them "talking" to us on most occassions

Thanks Everyone!

I'm glad to hear this is a GSD thing and not something I'm doing wrong. I'm constantly trying to figure out what she needs or wants. We've already taken her out for a potty break 3 times in the last hour. lol

She does bark! We've taken her to the dog park or walks and she barks like crazy. When she barks I walk her away from whoever she is barking at and when she stops barking, we walk back towards the people or dog. So far it isn't working.

I love the idea of her ringing a bell to let me know when she really needs to go out for a potty break. I will try to work on that and the "quiet" training.

She is actually teaching her sister to bark/whine too. Fun Fun Fun! lol
