Why is my dog whining so much all of a sudden?

• They aren’t eating enough.

A dog’s digestive system can’t process food efficiently when they aren’t consuming a balanced diet. Even the smallest amounts of dehydration or not eating enough of their food could be causing your dog to have stomach issues. As a result, they might whine when you feed them and try to hide their food.

• They have an ear infection.

If you notice your dog is constantly chewing on their ear or rubbing their ear on the ground, this might be an indication that they have an ear infection. A dog with an ear infection will also whine when it’s time to take their medicine.

• They don’t get enough exercise.

Spending too much time inside with their owners can actually be making your dog sick by depriving them of outdoor activity. The only way to know if they’re feeling anxious is the main cause of why your dog is whining.

What could be causing your dog to whine?

Many times when you're busy and your dog is whining, it could be that they are bored. Boredom can be caused by boredom or by something else such as a lack of exercise. Boredom is a symptom of anxiety.

For example, if your dog is anxious about going to the veterinarian, he may whine or yelp all of a sudden. There are many other reasons that your dog might whine such as being cold, being anxious, or even stress.

How to calm your dog down?

These are a few ways to help stop your dog from whining.

Play with your dog. If your dog does not have a playmate or they are stressed, playing with them could help.

It does not have to be the same toy. A quick tug of war game can help them build their confidence. Listen to music. Many dogs love music. For example, let them listen to the radio. Turn it up so that they can hear it. But limit it to five minutes or less because the noise may annoy them.

Kaze says, “It is actually a good idea to keep things as quiet as possible when working dogs since loud noises can make them uncomfortable or even fearful.” Change the location of their kennel. Make their kennel in a quiet room.

This way, they will be able to settle in and be more comfortable. Reduce their workload. 


Sometimes your dog could be feeling lonely. If you notice this, you can try to get them to play with another dog, or you can hang out with them during the day to keep them entertained.
