I am here watching football and Duke is sleeping and like his stomach or chest starts to like go up and down at a more rapid pace like he just got done running. but he is sleeping. Im not sure if its normal or what. I think maybe im just overly worried about my new puppy but im pretty sure its not normal. Maybe its a bad dream its weird. Any clue?

Sounds like a dream. Mensa will breathe fast, "run" with her feet, and yap like she's barking when she sleeps.

Reese is 4 months old and he has been doing the same thing since we brought him home at 9 weeks. It freaked me out too. The vet said dogs go through different stages of sleep just like people. He compared it to REM sleep. Reese does it every time he goes to sleep and he is just fine.

Asher does that all the time. He huffs in his sleep growling with wimpy barks. Then running and quick breathing. I would love to see what he is dreaming about. By the look of it, he was a bull in his past.
