    my dog is laid next to me "woofing" and chasing rabbits in his sleep
    I wouldn't worry too much


    my dog is like 14 and a labrador and can hardly walk aswell tho so they're hardly on par..
    jsut ask a vet if you're worried

    edit: he also tremors a lot when he's awake and asleep but I think that's just because he's old

    My dog does that, more so when she was a puppy than now. In all honesty, he's probably just dreaming, about running around and stuff! My dog used to bark in her sleep too, terrified the crap out of me the first time!

    I know my little Jack Russell goes through periods of trembling when she's awake - I just put it down to her being a small dog.

    My dog (a border terrier), my old dog (a greyhound) and my sister's dog (a jack russell) all do/did this when they slept. Their legs shake a bit and they make quiet barking noises. I think they think they're chasing rabbits and stuff I doubt it's anything to worry about but see what the vet says.

    Cool, well my dog also sometimes growls or whines in his sleep, which I assume is a result of dreaming.
    Is he old? Could be canine parkinsons.

    Both of my dogs do that, one is 11, the other is 2 years old. My friends Dog (10) does it too. They're dreaming!
    It's quite sweet, looks like they're playing the piano.
    But sometimes you can make clear distinct movements, they lap up water, lick things, their heckles (the fur on the back of their neck) sticks up, their feet move, they wag their tails, they make barking noises. It's just dreaming

    My 7 year old labrador does this now and again. Occasionally yelps or growls too.

    Generally nightmares - I tend to gently stroke her back and talk softly to her and the mood of the dream calms down and becomes happy again.

    It's either dreaming or lying on a nerve *nods* My dogs do it when they're awake!

    My hamster also barks and runs when he's asleep. My dogs think they're people and my hamsters think they're dogs!

    My cat twitches constantly, opens and rolls his eyes, whines, meows and purrs, all in his sleep (looks adorable though). I concur with all the posts that say your dog is just dreaming, OP. Animals are weird when they're asleep.

    Take him to the vets is you're worried though.

    It's the most adorable thing in the world when you wake them up and they wag their tails and look at you, like "oh thank god it was just a dream!!"

    It's worth getting it checked out, just to make sure it's nothing serious.

    My cat used to do the normal level of twitching in his sleep, but since he suffered nerve damage he now flops about like a fish out of the water. Poor thing has flopped himself right off the bed on more than one occasion.
