Have his teeth been checked lately? Sometimes infected teeth can cause inflammation or infection of the nasal cavity, which could promote snoring.

I don’t think so, some dogs just snore more than others… Unless it’s a new developement… The only thing I can think of is if he is overweight, it might make him snore more…  You can always ask the vet, it could be allergies too I guess…

I’m not much help, but when in doubt call your vet! They are always really helpful!

Haha my pugs snore like that – it sounds like really old men. You can hear one of them from another room with the door closed. I used to have to sleep with earplugs because of her… anyway, in the case of pugs, they snore because of nasal passage problems due to their short noses. Sometimes dogs with elongated palates may snore too. If it doesn’t seem to cause him difficulty breathing, I wouldn’t worry about it.

I had a boxer as a kid and damn! I could hear him all the way upstairs. If his teeth have been checked lately, I wouldn’t be worried.

I would take your dog to the vet, just to be on the safe side, for a health check. It could be any number of things or nothing at all.

My chocolate snores really loudly too!  Usually just a re-positioning is enough to make her stop.  She’s been to the vet recently and her teeth are fine.  My guess it’s just something she’ll do occasionally depending on how she’s laying, sleeping, etc.

I also have a 100lb chocolate lab, and she snores like an 80 year old man, and so does Fiance… I COMPLETELY understand your frustration!  Between the two of them i swear I wake up every hour to get one of them to stop.  My vet recommended putting a humidifier in the room with us, which helps move mucus and seems to minimize the snoring!  She doesn’t stop entirely, but she doesnt snore even close to as loud or as often as she used to!!  Talk to your vet, and try the humidifier!! (It also made my hair and skin awesome!! haha)
