Hello, our Malt named Happy is whining a lot. She's about 5 years old and was a rescue from the pound. We've had her about a year and she's doing well, but she whines quite a bit. She's primarily attached to me, and I don't mind the whining too much, but it's driving my girlfriend nuts. Happy whines when she wants to be petted or picked up mostly, so I usually pet her or pick her up; but this isn't always convenient. I've tried saying No, saying SHHHHH! everything, but she still whines. Sorry about the long post.
