Re: Does your dog twitch in its sleep?
Totally normal. Sometimes Ginger would twitch so much she'd wake me up when she was lying next to me! In fact Bianca just startled me a little while ago, she was sleeping and suddenly kicked her leg back hard, scraping the floor loudly.
My terrier Pooch used to jerk around a lot in his sleep, and when he was sleeping his tongue always hung out (did not fit in his mouth when he was relaxed) and then sometimes he'd sleep with his eyes open. Talk about nerve-wracking, imagine looking over and your dog has his eyes open and moving (REM sleep=rapid eye movement!), tongue hanging out and twitching like crazy! The first time I saw that I freaked out, woke him up and he looked at me like "what do YOU want? I'm trying to sleep here!"
Sometimes dogs will whine or even bark (usually muffled as their mouths are closed) in their sleep too.
