Reverse sneezing is a condition that affects all types of dogs, but more commonly smaller dogs such as little Terriers, and brachycephalic breeds. It is a “paroxysmal” respiratory response, meaning that it comes in spasm-like episodes just like “traditional’ sneezing. Biewer puppies might do it when they are excited, after waking up or after drinking water. Some do it a lot and some do it less. As they get older, they usually grow out of it and only don’t reverse sneeze very often at all. There is nothing you need to do or to worry about. If you really want to help stop it, just rub your pup’s throat gently or you can also try to cover the nostrils for a few seconds.
