Of course you can try a softer brush. Some dogs are very skin sensitive. Then again he might just be a big baby. Ignore the whine and continue to brush. During non whining intervals give treats and praise. Eventually he should get the idea.

You could always try the Kong Brush. It is a rubber brush and works great for regular brushing or for bath time. Also, are you sure Riley is giving a bad whine and not a good whine? If you switch brushes and she still does it may she is vocally saying it feels so good! :)
