My biggest suggestion is to no pay her any mind until she is quiet. She could be learning that when she whines she gets attention. Also teach her an end all command. For me it's "enough" Titan knows to stop whatever he's doing when I say that.

David Taggart Whining is a way your dog communicates with you. She whines out of excitement seeing you again after long waiting. By crating your puppy you simply improvise that what happens in nature - a wolf mother leaves her cubs and vent hunting for a long time. When she comes back with a rabbit in her mouth - the cubs are excited, and they greet her with whining. In your dog it simply goes out of control.
You should downplay your own greetings, keep them short and simple. Avoid speaking in excited, loud tones, and keep your movements slow and calm. Wait to pet and interact with your dog until she’s less excited. Imagine yourself that wolf-mother, exhausted and ready to have a short nap. Try to lay down as a first thing on your return and play a lazy game with your dog in laying down position. It also could be a good idea to feed her well a short while after - filled stomach suppresses emotions - before you take her for a walk. She would need intellectual games instead of just walking, which would provide some sort of opening for these suppressed emotions.
Whining in presence of other dogs has the same reason. She is greeting them, and then it goes out of control. It would be wrong to continue obedience in your situation, especially if it happens indoors ( limited space increases her condition), try to train already learned commands on your own outdoors . Your dog should be very active physically and mentally, and I'd strongly recommend outdoor Agility classes. She is old enough to start there in the junior group.

Baillif All I'm gonna say is there are two quadrants in operant conditioning that weaken a behavior you find undesirable. Key to fixing it is there.

FirefighterGSD I'm in the same boat with my new 11 week old guy. Right now I think it's more teething than anything else but the whining is annoying.

enh811 Yes.. The ONLY time I'm ok with whining is for her to tell me she has to go out. Lol and I'm glad to know she isn't the only tires whiny butt.

DaniRo I feel for you because I have a 12 week old whiner!! Sometimes he just walks around the house and whines until he finds a good spot to lay down. He sounds like a baby bear crying when he whines. It was cute at first but got old quick. I tell him to "shhhh" and ignore him and it has seemed to work. He has gotten much better over the last couple weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed. I wish you luck.

Rofl I so agree with this! Dinozzo whines to go outside too.

Good to hear. Dinozzo seems to get more whiny when tired or over excited. Its the default for everything. Lol

@lillie: normally my husband gets home before I do from work. What we normally do when we come home is IF we have something to out away or do really quick we do that. Normally that's not the case because if she has been in there for a while we will go straight to her crate to let her out. We then walk directly to the back door where she goes to go outside. She will whine the whole way to the back door. Do her thing outside and come in and whine. I know she is wanting attention, but we don't want to make her excited after letting her out of her cage because she will have an accident. So we wait to love on her until she comes in from outside... Am I doing this ALL WRONG or what?
