So my dog falls into the deepest sleep I’ve ever seen…ever. At first I thought she was having a seizure, turns out she is constantly dreaming!
She puffs air out of her mouth, growls, kicks, shakes, her ears twitch, tail wags, etc.
Mostly though she violently shakes and puffs air.
And it’s so difficult to wake her up from them that I pratically have to slap and shake her! Normally I just let her be, but when it’s obvious she’s having a bad dream and shaking and whimpering that I wake her up.
Is this normal?! Anyone elses dog? Or is it just my crazy pooch?!
ETA: She does this literally every single time she sleeps!

hahahaha my dog totally twitches his paws, puff’s out his cheeks, wines. You can tell he’s chasing something! Or at least I think he is. He doesn’t violently shake, and it’s not every time he’s asleep. I’d let the dog be though, don’t try so hard to wake her up she’s obviously sleeping very deeply if it’s that hard to wake her.

My dog growls, barks, twitches and runs in his sleep. I usually don’t have to wake him up though, I can just pet him and he calms down. He has woken himself up before with a loud bark or fart though lol.

@MsJ2theZ: I just feel so bad when she’s whining like she’s in pain! (Plus it’s really very loud)
One time she shook so bad she shook herself right off the bed… I’ve never had a dog that fell off of the bed more than her!

@lolita39: OK well that’s hilarious LOL! Hmm I mean I will say our dog’s name when he’s really going crazy, or pet him, but that usually works easily.

@housebee: lol! That’s awesome! If I try to pet my girl like that she doesn’t even notice. I can pick her whole head up and drop it and she’s still out like a light!

it is normal. my dog grunts and twitches when he sleeps. i won’t from home once a week. after sleeping all night, he’ll fall asleep in the room with me working and do the same thing.
don’t worry about it.

Oh my goodness my dogs are crazy sometimes when they sleep. I see their feet moving, they must be chasing something good, along with usual sounds like growling and barking. I don’t usually wake them up. I did laugh so hard once when my male barked while sleeping and woke himself up. It was too funny!
