You can ignore the behaviour so they realise it doesnt get attention and they will eventually give up trying.
Most dogs grow out of whining as they get older.
You teach with love. Pick that sweet puppy up and put it on your shoulder and rub it's back. Talk softly to it, it is scare and feels alone. You have to bond with a puppy, just like any baby. And when you put it in it's bed---put in a toy that has your scent on it. Love conquers all.
It really depends on when it is whining. If it is at night, then it is probably lonely. Dogs are pack animals and a new puppy is not used to sleeping without his pack. Crate training can help, but be sure that the crate is where he can be near you. You are the new pack leader. However, if this is happening every time you are out of sight you need to do a little behavior modification. Be sure he has all his needs met and plenty to occupy him. If you continue to give attention every time he starts whining you are reinforcing the behavior you want to stop.
We need more information about the whining:) When, Why, Where,
As long as your puppy is healthy and catered for its probably an attention thing. In my experience I have learned to deal with it the hard way and ignore it completely its hard but it makes life much easier in the long run. If you succumb to wining it can lead to constant barking and other naughty behaviors. Its fairer on the dog in the long run.
He just wants love. My dog used to cry allll night every night when he was a puppy and I tried ignoring but it just didn't work. I ended up letting him sleep on my pillow every night and he NEVER cried once I let him sleep with me. After a couple of weeks, maybe a month or two, I put him back to sleep on his own and he was okay. The older he gets the more independent is how I look at it. Enjoy his puppy-ness, I miss my little one when he was that age, haha:)

What's the best way to teach an old dog to get along with other dogs?We have a German shepherd that is 11. I'd like to get a puppy, but our current dog can be aggressive to other dogs even though she's been socialized a ton. Is there a way to introduce another dog to our home?

I'm in the process of training my four-month-old puppy. He is quite unruly and hyperactive, especially when I take him out on walks. I've watched and read numerous videos and books, and a lot of them suggest the use of choke chains or pinch chains. I find it a tad cruel, though. Is using choke...
