Another whinning dog question? and photos!

Recommended Posts

I've got a choco lab 10 months and he rarely barks. He whines ALOT! His mother died at birth and was then bottle fed. I'm wondering if he's got some seperation problems. He doesn't whine in his crate unless he's gotta go pee or eat. Any ideas how to get him to stop?..or just young yet. Just thought you guys would like to see a few pics of my best friend!..(next to wife of course)

Nice hound, some dogs are just more vocal then others nothing you can really do except live with it. I have one dog who never makes a sound and the other whines all the time.

It's a long haul to break a dog of a whining habit. Teach him the 'quiet' command. Command 'no' and 'quiet' when he begins to whine. Praise him when he quiets down. Try and calm him if he is whining. It's a toughey! Many dogs are strung a little higher and the whining tends to come naturally to higher strung dogs.

Good Luck!

No kidding!! I was at the lake with a buddy last night working on my dogs breaking (never fully resolved this issue). My buddy would throw a bumper into the lake and send his dog for the retrieve while mine was forced to sit and watch. I think half the people at the park thought I was shocking/abusing the dog because he's so vocal. He is going to be very tough to break of the breaking habit......and I know the vocal issue will never go away. If there's a bumper thrown he is just lit up....fun to have a dog with drive like that but hard to control!

I've been trying for ten years to do that I have to leave the dog in the house when we duck hunt because he wines so loud.

I hear you too. My GSP whom I just lost to the road whined like there was no tomorrow, and "high strung" doesn't even beging to explain him!!

I will tell you this. After having him from 6 weeks old to just over 10 years old, and loosing him to the highway, I sincerely miss the whining. Couldn't stand it when he was here, but now...................... hind sight is always 20/20, they are just trying to communicate to us the only way they know how. I never punished my bud for whining, but really, really wish he would have stopped.

If I could have him back, I'd take the whining 3 fold....o.k., maybe 2 fold, but I'd definetly take it back!!!

My yellow lab is 10yrs old now and really slowing down. You put her in the boat and go duck hunting and oh my god does she whine. I had to install a dog dock off the back of the duck boat. After I sit her on that she stops whining. Her biggest thing is being able to see. If she can't see or be with me when I am in the deks she is whining. Actually I would more or less call it a high pitched scream. Wouldn't trade her for anything tho...best dog I have ever had...will be hard to replace. Good luck!

one thing i have seen work, is put the dog on a lead and sit in a holding blind with him, while others run marks. if he starts to whine, use one of the big flimsy whiffle ball bats. this is a trick i learned from a pro for helping with issues that you need to be physical with the dog on. the bat will not hurt him, it will fold before it can hurt the dog, but its big, menacing and makes a lot of noise.

so, instead of the heeling stick, try the bat next time.

I would assume that the bat is used directly after a command such as quiet or sit.....so the dog knows what is being asked of it.

The wiffle bat also works great to reinforce sit!

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
