I think that training a dog can help stop a dog from whining for attention, but it should come after you address whatever is causing the whining.
Any sort of positive reinforcement training will help with attention-seeking, because you are literally giving the dog what they are asking for - attention! Punishment based training should be avoided in this case. It gives the dog attention, but it doesn't address what the dog is really looking for, which is a connection with you.
