  2. Your dog might  be uncomfortable with a sound;
  3. Your dog might be in heat;

  6. Your dog might be genetically predisposed to whining and crying.

If your dog’s crying is irritating you, rest assured that there are steps you can take to help your furry friend overcome this ailment.

  1. You might want to check your dog for any problems;
  2. You might want to journal what you notice when your dog cries/whines for a few days;
  3. You can make your dog earn really good rewards when he/she doesn’t cry;
  4. Your dog might be suffering from an emotional disorder; or
  5. You might need to put a halti on your dog.

If none of the above remedies work then you should consult your vet to see what exactly might be causing the problem.
