I don't wake my girl up when she's dreaming ... doesn't matter if she's sleep-barking or running. But I'll readily admit that I sometimes mess with her when she's dreaming ... like holding a good-smelling treat under her nose or gently touching the little hairs between her paws. I wonder what that does to her dreams.

I've never seen my dogs do this.. but just today! Bailey was out cold and his tail was wagging like crazy. It was so cute. I didn't wake him up. I figured it had to be a very good doggy dream for his tail to wag like that.

I only speak reassuring words if they seem distressed, and they usually calm down but don't wake up. I guess, if it was me and I was in the middle of a nightmare, I'd like the same. It has been fun reading this thread.

I gently pet her. It usually soothes her without waking her up.

I agree with letting sleeping dogs lie.
They have been running in their sleep for millions of years and it doesn't seem to have harmed them.

Three nights ago Lucky's chasing bunnies and woke daisy and us up banging his paws into the closet door. My husband reached out and touched him and he turned back over so his paws were under the bed. Lucky is my sleep runner.
