Why is the dog whining?

Whining is a fallback form of communication for dogs, but since energy and body language are key, the transition to whining can signify a high degree of joy or need on the part of the pet.

There are many reasons why your pet may whine. Let’s consider a few of them.

1. The dog is uncomfortable and needs something. For example, a dog is thirsty, but his water bowl is empty. Or she needs to go for a walk to relieve herself, you are not in a hurry, but she is no longer able to endure. Or maybe your favorite toy rolled under the sofa, and your four-legged friend can’t get it.

2. The dog is bored. Yes, dogs, like people, can get bored. Only if a person is able to find a lot of entertainment for himself, dogs are limited in this sense, including the conditions that people create.

3. The dog is in pain. Most often in this case, the dog whines when changing positions, when trying to stand up or lie down, shakes his ears, or shows other signs of illness.

4. The dog is overly excited. Sometimes the cause of whining is overexcitation of the dog. It is difficult for the animal to cope with this state, and excess emotions “come out” in sounds.

5. The dog suffers alone. Some dogs find it hard to be alone and start whining when they are anxious or urging their owner to come back.

What to do in such cases?

If with an empty bowl and a desire to quickly go outside, everything is clear. what to do when the reason is not on the surface?

There is only one answer here – contact the veterinarian in order to make sure that everything is in order with your pet!
