Sp00ks The "conversations" are great. Our new pup is very vocal. However, the excited whining like in the car is different.

Our previous shepherd sounded like we were torturing a baby in the car. Not cool. It subconsciously made me not want to take her with us. She wasn't very vocal otherwise. Unless that J.G. Wentworth commercial came on tv..... I don't think it was stress, just excitement. Like the OP stated, she would pace the backseat and cry. If we had both dogs in the car, she would trample the other dog. She was a very high strung GSD. Great dog.

GSxOwner I was so thankful when my pup learned how to use her voice! Theres a whine for a bathroom break, bark for she heard something and the most bizarre sound (like shes trying to talk) which usually means she's sassing me over something...

I will work on that. Thanks

havery Sofie's definitely a talker, too. When I'm pushing her in a training session she'll whine to tell me she's excited. At food time I make her sit while I pour her food and she whines to tell me she's hungry and to hurry up lol. If it's too much I put my fingers to my lips or shhhhh her and she stops. It wasn't really intentional to teach her that, she just picked up on it, apparently I reacted positively when she stopped whining after I did that. Our new adoption is a talker too, just not as much as her.
