Q: How do I stop an 11 month old puppy from whining so much?
Even though I feed him, give him water, take him outside to potty, let him go play, love and care for him, he still whines. I don't know if it's because he's tired or what.

My dog whines alot too. I was told it is harder to stop whining then it is to stop barking. But my dog doesn't whine that much anymore. I think for my dog - he needed me to interact with him more- playing with him, training with him and taking him for walks. We do so much together that when I need to do other things - he is quite content to lie down and take a nap. My dog is 45 pounds - i think yours is smaller? I would make sure he is exercised alot. Letting him outside by himself may not be giving him the exercise he needs - My dog goes out runs a little bit and then sits down and finds a stick to chew on? I need to get him running around for longer periods without sitting down so much.
Hope this helps - Good Luck.
