What do you do when you see your dog running in their sleep. Do you think its cute and leave it or gently wake them from a terrifying nightmare. Just curious. I normally wake my girl up gently.

How do you know she isn't dreaming of chasing cats and butterflies and whatnot when she's running in her sleep?

My girl hasn't done too much of that. I wish she would cuz I think it's cute. She just grunts and grumbles and farts in her sleep. So ladylike.

Waking a person in the middle of a dream cycle is the pits, I can't imagine waking an animal is any different.

I've always let them be UNLESS they become very vocal like having those rare ear piercing/screeching/shrieking type howls ... then I wake them up and stay with them until they settle back down to sleep.
