Dogs that snore...

Vet says that Bobby snores because his face is flat. Yep, Toto has a longer snout, Bobby seems to be more "puglike". as I watch him sleep, I also have to bear with loud snoring, and most nights, he also suffers from nightmares or very realistic dreams, as he whimpers, barks, and chases stuff in his sleep.

Do you have this situation with your pets? Is it a cause for concern? Vet just wants Bobby to avoid allergens, but we already have the air purifier in the living room.

make him sleep in the spare bedroom, unless he's made more than 40,000 at poker that night.

just like any normal husband.

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

I think like people, weight has a part in the equation. My old English has gotten a bit portly in her old age and has started snoring much more often than when she was a pup.

Sometimes certain breeds just snore, despite their general physical shape (weight). My guy is a champion snorer, like most of his breed.

We worry a bit when he goes quiet!
As it is, we seem to regard it as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has taken one side or the other. We regard it (in other words) as a positive objection to a reasoner that he has contrived to reach the object of his reasoning. We call a man a bigot or a slave of dogma because he is a thinker who has thought thoroughly and to a definite end.

y dog snores a bit, always had.

Since he was just a few weeks old he has really intense dreams. Little 'woof woof woof' barks, legs running...its super cute.

I don't think you need to worry.

My dog snores and he has a snout which would make Concorde proud.

I have a french bulldog and he snores when he is sitting, playing, walking, sleeping, eating, playing with his winnie (yes he does that)... mm now that I think about its easier to say when he doesnt snore hahaha... but its really hard to tell..
so yes, in some cases the snoring is due to flat nose..

Thank you for all the comments. I'm trying to get a video of Bobby in action for your perusal.

Urodacus: Bobby sleeps in the living room. That I can hear him from my bedroom I think it's cause for concern.

KaiKai: he's a bit big for a 2 year old, he's over 5 kilos -5.34 last time he was at the vet- and he was a bit under 4 when I found him. But he's not fat nor old.

Tigerman: Dunno if Maltese snore a lot or not. Vet says it's because of the snout. He does overheat more easily than Toto, pants more after walking the same distance, and Toto is way older. But vet says his heart is OK.

Confuzius: I just wonder if he's traumatized or anything emotional so he has all these vivid nightmares... yes, I think tyoo much.

Hans: jajajaja, yeah, that's an exception, the little sausage dog.

Omerjos: vaya, ese es el campeon de los ronquidos! nunca lo he visto hacer despierto!

that dog in the pic even looks like he's giving a good earful!

our dogs dont snore, but in deep sleep have a talking/crying kind of thing going on. I have noticed though that all the dogs we have had here (either purebred formosa something or similar looking street dogs) have long noses and are fairly muscular and lean, never a snore. I wonder if the squishy face thing is to blame a lot of the time?

Apparently, many Maltese dogs snore. For most, I assume it has to do with the short snout. But, other factors can contribute, such as allergies and weight (overweight). My D o f u (what's with the spell-corrector here for this word?) is in fair shape for a 9.5 year old Sharpei. He doesn't do well in the heat, either. But, he snores and snorts all the time, whether he's lean and mean or chubby and tubby. Also, it doesn't seem to matter what his sleeping posture is... he snores all the time!
