Surprise!- your pup has figured out that if he whines for long enough, you will come. You have created this behavior, and now you have to end it. LEAVE HIM with a toy and go to bed with earplugs in. After a week, he will get it. In a few months he will be a teenage dog and some behaviors will become ingrained, so tough love to break him of this habit... or you are not going to be sleeping. Dogs, like people, tend to behave in the manner in which they know that they can get away with. Don't let this happen with your pup!! ^_^
