Hi. Last November, we acquired our brother in-laws 7yr old Golden Retriever. Last month, we got a puppy Golden. The kids and family love these dogs. Our 7yr old lived outside for 7 years of his life. He lost a brother about 4 years ago. When we brought him home, we had his kennel in our kitchen. He would never bark, but would Whine whenevr we put him outside on our 3 season Porch. We did not wnat to kennell him all day, so the porch is a great place. He even has a dog house on it! He whines outside not all day, but whenever my wife leaves, my wife comes home, the door bell rings or sees the puppy. He also follows around my wife from room to room, whenever my wife gets up from the couch, he gets up and follows her to the kitchen, the bedroom, etc....He sometimes does this with me or the kids, but maily the wife. Now that we have puppy, both dogs are downstairs in our finished basement. Puppy and the 7yr old get along great and play ALOT! The 7yr old now will bark every morning (ealry too)....He never did that before. Between the b arking and the whining, we are looking for help. The neighbors have politely asked us about the dog whinning outside and that is my concern. We really do not mind the whinning, but the neighbors do. The barking has to stop in the morning too. Here is what we have tried. Ignoring him, squirting him with water, even a load stern No from my Manly voice - it works for 1 minutes and then he'll just whine again. We are looking for help!
