He may not be so "perfect" as your veterinarian says.  Unless a vet has x-ray vision and magical powers, only extensive blood work and a complete exam(orthopedic, opthalmological, neurological) can answer the question: why is this adolescent dog demonstrating a juvenile behavior that is intended to elicit attention due to physical need, pain, distress?

Not taking him places is an error.  He needs to be socialized.  If people are annoyed because of his whining, my pov is: too bad, walk away, no one is in handcuffs.  As for your response, no attention at all for whining(in fact, leaving the room) and some counter conditioning: interrupt whining with a whistle or a clap of hands, ask for sit, heavily reward and praise.  Do this periodically throughout the day, every day, and if this is strictly behavioral it will stop.

However, it may not be strictly behavioral.  I suggest you find a veterinary behaviorist so this young dog can have a true overall examination and temperament evaluation.  You might find one on the following sites:http://www.veterinarybehaviorists.org/http://www.avsabonline.org/avsabonline/

I rarely go to the question pool(which is where I found your question) but it's never too late to try.
