    Unhappy Whiny Puppy... Help

    I have a 9 week old puggle puppy. She is doing well with her potty training but she whines if you leave her alone for any amount of time. She has a lot of room to play several toys and seems to be happy. I've tried ignoring her but she gets louder. I live in an apartment and dont want to bother the neighbors but I dont know what to do to stop this behavior. She also bites whenever you try to play, and she cant be distracted with toys. . Please help

    well first off, your puppy is VERY VERY young. this is the time where your pup really really needs to be with someone. pups that young really arent happy to be alone, they get bored, and stressed. this is when they need to bond, and are looking to learn from you and learn that you are the alpha of the pack. i was fortunate enough to be able to take my pup with me to work, so i was NEVER away from her. so its not that she(he) im sorry i forgot which it was, is being whiney, theyre looking for "mommie" theyre looking for a friend, theyre looking for comfort. all these things are really important to a pup whos so young and needs you. its not ready to be on its own yet. as for the nipping, thats part of puppyhood play. what you can try is when youre playing, so soon as there is a nip you said "ouch!" in a loud sharp voice, i actually instead yelped like a little puppy, and stop play for a few minutes. completely ignore them and turn your back. then go and resume play, but be consistant. do this every time there is any nip. they will get the connection of "when i do that, i dont get to play anymore" and it will soon stop. good luck!
