I have a 9 month old mastiff /pit male puppy who, for the most part, is an exceptional well behaved pup. However, his persistent whining is getting out of hand.
He was only 7 weeks old when I got him and he had already been taken from his mother before that. He was potty trained with in a week, learned all the basic commands and is a really good dog. However, he seems to suffer from separation anxiety with me as well as developed a persistent whining in last 2 months. I'm home with him 90% of the time and give him lots of love and attention as well as tons of playtime.
I don't understand why all the whining now and I am wondering if it could be a possible later affect of being removed from mother to soon? (https://i.stack.imgur.com/BTwha.jpg)
