How do I stop my dog's whining?

My dog frequently does this high pitched whine. It mostly seems to be triggered by her wanting to get at the cat. Sometimes she doesn’t seem to have an apparent reason for the whining. Anyway it’s highly annoying and I know that yelling at her won’t help but I really want her to stop this behavior.

A hand held water gun works with one of my dogs to stop barking. The other one I have a Dazzer II which when the button is pressed it makes a high pitch super-sonic noise that the human ear can’t hear. I say his name and say no then press the you are probably wondering does the dazzer actually work? Yes! I pressed the button when my neighbors bird was chirping away and wouldn’t stop. When I pressed the button the bird stopped dead in it’s tracks then responded a minute later with a weird super sonic noise. It was funny :)

If the whinning is mostly for no reason than get her checked at the vet, She may be suffering from some sort of pain. My cousins dog use to do it a lot and it wasn’t till she started staying in bed that they decided to take her to the vet and it turned out to be cancer. Now if she is in fine health than she may just be looking for attention and wants you to play with her or she wants to go out. When shes whinning about the cat try throwing her favorite toy. She’ll get quickly distracted and forget about the cat. If the cat is a new member to the family she may feel jealous. Show her some extra attention and try to get them together to play till she feels comfortable.

Lock the liquor cabinet. Oh, that’s how to stop you dog from “wine-ing”...

What I do is just look at them intensely with kind of a mean, serious glare and say ‘NO’ in a low voice. Keep doing it until they walk away. I don’t know if this will work but it sure makes them uncomfortable!
