Reasons Why is my Dog Whining so Much all of a Sudden


Dogs communicate in a number of ways, including barking, licking their paws, whining, and more. They are very vocal companions and one of the many ways they communicate audibly is through whining.

Knowledge is power, especially in parenting. It’s very normal for your pup to whine when they are excited, seeking attention, anxious, or when they’re aiming to please.


They Need or Want Something

They may be asking you for food, water, or a walk. It may be because their favorite toy is stuck under the couch or they want you to throw the ball for them.


Appeasement Behavior

Canines often turn to whining when they are conceding and looking to reconcile after a misstep on their part.


Greeting Behavior

Sometimes, due to the sheer excitement of welcoming you home, a whole host of sounds ranging from barks to squeals, and whines will chorus together as a greeting.


Boredom or Seeking Attention

Dogs are a lot like kids in this way; they complain when they feel no one is paying them attention or when they want something to do.


Potty Time

A common reason for a dog’s cries could be a plea for the loo. This need to relieve themselves rings particularly true for house-trained dogs as they know to go outside to do their business.
