    Default Whingeing 8 1/2 year old bitch

    My fully trained older bitch has started whingeing when training. She does it when doing various drills waiting for a cast and before being sent on anything including blinds and marks.
    At trials she will do it when I go up to the 'mat' (with us pegs) and whilst waiting for the birds. She does not do it when stopped in the field. She is still very keen and not in pain. I have tried waiting her out ( possibly not long enough) and low level correction but nothing works. I would like to keep running her for another 6 months to a year including our National but this is not good. Any ideas or is she just getting geriatric with worse to come like her owner?!

    Whingeing? Do you mean whining? Making noise?
