Have you tried taking her to the vet? Maybe she has arthritis or some other disease. Also, does she eat often?

If you exclude physical discomfort then training can cure the whines.

@Dog, this is true also

Are you giving your dog attention every time she whines? If so, you’re just enabling that behavior and reinforcing her belief that if she whines she’ll get what she wants…your attention.
