Am I the only one who has to deal with a dog who whines and back talks? It drives me crazy! :doh: How do I get him to stop? We went to obedience class last Wednesday and because he had to sit with me on the leash for an hour instead of playing with the other dogs he whined and when I would shoosh him or slightly yank on the the leash he would LOUDLY back talk (grumble). Everyone else thought it was funny but I was quite embarrassed. He whines if I work past 5pm and don't take him on his walk right away, when he doesn't get dinner on time, basically when he doesn't get his way. I hate whiny kids and I definitely dont want a whiny dog! Help me nip this in the butt! He will be a year old next month and it seems like all of a sudden its started, he never used to do this (or at least not as much).
