Question Dreams?

I was watching Cledus sleeping earlier, and I noticed at first his little toes started to twitch. Then his lip began to qwiver, and he started to breath harder and faster. He did that for a while, then his whole paw started to move. And I noticed the muscles in his leg began to tense up. His nose started to wiggle. He is probably dreaming or something, but what kinda worried me was that his breathing increased so fast. He did that for about a minute or two then he woke up. He raised his head up, and was really still for a minute, then fell back asleep. Just wondering if anyone elses pup does this. It's probably nothing and I'm just a worry wort.
Thanks-

I once watched a bull mastiff chase something in his sleep. Dogs do indeed dream.

What you need to watch for is any seizure-like activity. Any shaking, disorientation, vomiting, or loss of bowel-control warrants a call to the vet. But it sounds like Cledus was just chasing a kitty cat.

Alright, thanks Jade. He probably was just dreaming. His lips were really staring to qwiver I thought he was going to growl or something, but he never did. You think dogs do talk in their sleep?

Occasionally our dog will wimper and twitch a little bit, so she must be dreaming. My daughter wakes her up because she gets louder and louder and it bugs her. Who knows what she is dreaming about!

Yeah, my Pit bull dreams all the time... What worries me is that she used to be abused.. I think she dreams about bring abused sometimes because she cries. She used to do it more than she does now- so that's good but yeah, all my dogs have always dreamed!! (remember that belief a while ago when they said dogs dont dream?)

I wish I knew what he was dreaming about, that would be so cool. It was just weird to watch him. I didn't think it was a seizure, but his breathing was so rapid all of a sudden. I'm glad it wasen't. **thinks to herself, i wonder if he got what he was chasing?**

Talking

my dogs do this all the time. as long as you can stop it by waking them up, its probably not a seizure. my yorkie will bark in her sleep sometimes and it's so cute! of course chaquita starts barking then and then penny wakes up and barks with her for 5 minutes. and all because penny barked in her sleep. haha!

My Golden is the most active dreamer! He huffs, snorts, whines and growls, his feet twitch as if he is running in his sleep... it's sometimes sad when he cries! Sometimes I'll wake him up and love on him just to reassure him I don't know if I should do that, but I can't help it!

Puppies under one year old - I read that when a puppy is twitching and vocalizing during sleep it actually serves a purpose! It's the brain forming neurologic connections. It's growth process that we can see! I thought that was a facinating read.

Max is 7 months old now and seems to be outgrowing it. When he was tiny- wow - he'd scare me sometimes because it was so seizure-like! He'd twitch all over, his paws would twitch - it was scary and disconcerting. He was checked out fully so I know it wasn't seizure activity.... and I was relieved to find out that all that sleep activity was actually serving a purpose!

Both of my doggies dream like crazy - I don't like to wake them up though ... I did Blackie one time and all I saw was a bunch of teeth comin' at me.
Blackie used to sleep under the bed, until one night when he woke us up huffing and whimpering in his sleep. Greg put a stop to that. When Dutchy wakes up from a dream, he won't move a bit for at least half a minute - even if you call him. He'll just move his eyes looking around.

I want so bad to KNOW what they're dreams are like !!

I always imagine that Jack is dreaming about the "evil deer" that trek through our yard every day. If he sees them out the window he goes berzerk!!
When he's growling and his paws are running in his sleep I always think he's chasing the "evil deer.

It would be amazing to know exactly what they are dreaming about.

My Bach used to dream just like Deja's Jack. It was hilarious to watch. I haven't noticed it much in Tito or Snooper tho.
