Default Sneezing

So, I've just noticed over the past day or two that my buddy has been sneezing a lot. Normally, there's a sneeze or two here and there, but it's gotten to the point to where it is happening with such a frequency that I've noticed it and decided to make a thread on here.

I don't notice any funky discharge or anything really wrong with his nose. It's a bit more wet than normal, but is clear mucus. The only real environmental changes is that it's been hot and dry compared to last year and it kicks up more dirt/pollen than normal, but if there was ever a person that knows when allergies are bad, it would be me, and I'm not suffering (despite being allergic to anything green.)

Is this something that I need to consult with a vet after a certain length of time?

1mg / lb every 8 hours is standard dosing.

Alright, I'll give it to him today and see how he does.

I looked around in his nose with a flashlight but it's kind of hard to see up there. Is it safe to say that if he had something stuck up there like a seed or a grain (we have a lot of wild grass and such), he would show a lot more discomfort? He hasn't clawed at his nose or anything, just sneezing.

My boy sneezes alot also, he sticks his nose in holes and tries to capture moles and ground hogs.
Which concerns me as I do not want him to encounter snakes or lg. spiders. Looks like you have answer with benedryl. My girl was stung by a yellowjacket and when I got home she was so swollen she could hardly breathe I used my sons' Benedryl and she showed almost immediate results.

When kennel cough hit all three of my dogs the two oldest ones only sneezed. The puppy was hit hardest by it with typical symptoms.
