    Why does my puppy whine when she's playing with her favorite toy?

    She is young, very happy and extremely friendly. When she's in her crate she doesn't whine often. And when she plays with toys other than her favorite she doesn't whine either, so I find it pretty strange.

    Any ideas of what could cause this?

    It could be that she's whining in excitement or anticipation..whining isn't necessarily a sign that something's wrong. Dogs don't have many ways to communicate as we do with words, so what they do have (barking, howling, whining..) can be used for different things. A dog may whine when they need out, when upset, or even when excited waiting for you to come in the door when they see your car pull in. So her whining while playing with her favorite toy may very well just be that she's excited, or maybe she's trying to do something with it that she can't figure out (mine sometimes whine when trying to get treats out of their kongs, or when they can't find the squeaker in a toy that only has a small one in the one arm). She sounds like a very happy young pup so I'm sure it's nothing bad..just enjoy her

    Some dogs do that when they are excited. I have one who whines and yelps in excitement whenever he gets in the car. It's amazing I have any eardrums left. Dogs don't have the same ability to vocalize as humans do, so they have to work with what they've got. A whine could mean pain or it could mean excitement. Unless there is something in or on her favorite toy that could be hurting her, she's probably just beside herself with excitement.
