It isn’t bad, but instead of waking him up, just lay your hand on him just like you would if he was a baby. And talk soothingly to him. Laying your hand on him and/or rubbing on him softly and talking to him soothingly will help without waking him.

We never wake our dog and he has whimpering dreams at least once a night. Sometimes I’ll pet him to calm him down but the dreams never last long (a couple of minutes maximum).

We usually laugh when our dog is dreaming, but he’s typically making little “wuff” barks instead of whimpering. Also twitching like he’s running, and growling. I agree that just laying your hand on him soothingly is probably best, no need to wake him.

I owuldn’t wake him, and I wouldn’t touch him, either. I think all dogs do this. I wouldn’t worry too much about it, maybe just mention it to the vet next time you’re there.

i JUST did this…normally his lil paws are moving and he makes the tiny barks. a couple times he does this chewing thing with his mouth which is cute.

but just now he was growling in his sleep…he’s done this before and i hold him and he wakes up. he’s such a sweetie and almost never gets upset so i dunno why but i always hold him when he growls in his dreams.

he’s my baby! 🙂
