When it's time to settle in for the night Ada will occasionally lay down and make some whining or groaning noises. She'll repeat the noises every now and then. Do you think she's just bored? She gets 1.5 hours of exercise each day and some training and all the pets she wants, but i feel so bad when she makes those noises and looks at me with sad eyes:(. Am i not doing enough with her?

My pup does the exact same thing! At first I did feel bad and guilty, but I've come to the conclusion that he is just super spoiled since he does get enough exercise. Sometimes the whining will get progressively louder until he's barking, and then I just get annoyed. When he was a puppy and he would whine, I thought something was wrong and would immediately rush over to make sure he was ok. I think this taught him whining gets him attention, so now he does it whenever he wants attention.
