Default Heavy breathing while sleeping?

Does anyone else's puppy do this?

My puppy (about 5 mos now) just about hyperventilates when she is sleeping. She breathes so fast and shallow that it doesn't seem right. Other than that she acts normal. It is more pronounced when she is sleeping in her crate.

Just a puppy thing?

My puppy does this as well, it can be really loud too.
I don't know what it is, I thought it was normal..

My pup does the same thing. I asked my vet about it last visit and she said it was a normal puppy thing.

My pup never did that. She's always been a slow breather.
My last dog was a panter, we called her the Black Panter. (groan)

All I can think of as a problem is: Is it too warm? Is the dog
laying on a dog bed that holds in the warmth?

Hi, did you ever get the answer to your question as my pup Max (7months) does this too, only at night time though, or if the house is a little warm. Took him to the vets who gave him a look over and said he was fine, maybe just hot owing to his huge amount of hair!!!!

My 14 week-old German Shepherd has been doing this too - I had slight 'new puppy' panic so it's great to read these threads to settle my worries! She seems to stick her nose deep in her blanket, hyperventilates as she can't breathe properly, wakes herself up and then repeats... I think she has a lot to learn!

Just noticed this for the first time last night with my pup so imagine my suprise to get on here and this be the first thread I see! I thought either she was dreaming or too hot. I turned the fan on and she seemed ok after that.

Sage is doing this really bad lately, heavy breathing hyper ventilating, so lots i can't sleep at night and then she gets up and roams around. I don't know what to do....

My little guy is 4.5 months and he snores soo loud. We always laugh because how can a puppy snore that loud.

Probably panting because he is too warm...

We give them rugs and beds, here in the fall in Australia, Caesar walks off to the cool floor.. Fan or AC and clean floor and see if the panting stops..

They will at time whine or breath heavy in their sleep dreaming... I have even seen them half running or kicking in their sleep.. All normal..
