Helppp!!! I have a 8 month old male dobie named odin, we love our dog and the 2 other dogs but Odin is driving me insane. Nothing has changed in our home but he whines about everything. I have read different things about dobies whining and they say they are vocal that some bark and others whine, unfortunatley we live in a duplex so we have neighbours and we dont want them complaining, our walls are paper thin. I would like any advice or solutions to my problem, I want to enjoy my dog. Thank you in advance.

Our puppy whines at us when shes bored or has too much pent up energy. To keep the 'whineies', as well call them, away I make sure to take her on walks daily as well as lots of short training sessions throughout the day for mental stimulation.

So, I agree with S&MM :)

Diesel is a whiner when he's bored or he's really tired. We live in an apartment but everyone has dogs that bark and carry on so no one really minds so much here anymore. I'd start giving him some more excersise and mental stimulation then he won't have a reason to cry but dobermans are known for making noise. Diesel cries when I go to the bathroom cause he's not near me. It's just what they do.

Tired dogs a quiet dog :]
Agree with all above.. Probably needs more stimulation.
Also, make sure your not rewarding him unintentionally
Meaning if he whines, do not give him attention
he'll soon learn whining wont get him anywhere.
Maybe even reward him randomly when his quiet and calm...
Start training for a quiet command..
:]

If the whining has increased out of the norm, he could possibly be in pain. You may want to have him checked out by your vet.
