I’m just wondering if anyone out there has a dobe who has nightmares. We have had our rescue for 6 months now. This boy does not have the typical dreams where he is chasing bunnies like my previous dogs. He growls and snarls at whatever seems to be chasing him and wakes up in a defensive panicky state. This happens quite frequently and has not changed in frequency since we have had him. We have to warn guests that when he does this it’s not directed at them. We do not know much about him since he was picked up as an emaciated stray but we can tell his past was somewhat violent. All in all he is a super dog and we love him to bits. His personality is coming out more and more but we were hoping the nightmares would decrease, poor guy. Has anyone else ever witnessed a dog having bad dreams?
