    Does anyone have advice on how to stop a puppy's constant and continual whining?!!! He's in an exercise yard in my kitchen with food, water, toys, blanket...everything I can think of that a puppy might need. He's been put out to potty and played with. But the minute he goes back into the play-yard, he whines. And whines. And whines some more....and some more. I've been trying to ignore it---not reward him for it--but my nerves are fraying a bit. I've never had a puppy like this before. They usually need some reassurance but then are fine after a day or two. I'm very afraid it is a habit that I'll never break. *Sigh*
    I'm just tired and letting out my frustrations I guess. It all comes down to who is stronger willed......him or me. I WILL outlast the whining!!! I won't give in to it!!! *Sigh*
