Sneezing dogs...

Winnie does it often when she greets us...

If your dog consistently sneezes when they see you, it could be due to a variety of reasons. However, it's important to note that dogs don't typically sneeze as a reaction to emotions like humans do. Here are a few possibilities:

  1. Excitement or Playfulness: Some dogs get excited or playful when they see their owners, and this excitement can lead to sneezing. It's a way for them to release energy.

  2. Allergies: Your dog might be allergic to something in your environment, such as dust, pollen, or certain scents. When they see you, they could be reacting to these allergens.

  3. Nasal Irritation: If there's something in the air that irritates your dog's nose, such as cleaning products, perfumes, or smoke, they may sneeze as a response.

  4. Health Issues: In some cases, frequent sneezing can be a sign of an underlying health issue, such as a respiratory infection or nasal irritation. If your dog's sneezing is persistent or accompanied by other symptoms like coughing, lethargy, or nasal discharge, it's advisable to consult with a veterinarian.

  5. Behavioral Quirk: Dogs, like people, can develop quirky behaviors that may not have a clear explanation. If your dog is otherwise healthy and happy, and the sneezing doesn't seem to cause distress, it might just be a unique quirk.

If you're concerned about your dog's sneezing, especially if it's accompanied by other symptoms or if it's a new behavior, it's best to consult with a veterinarian. They can conduct a thorough examination and help determine the cause of the sneezing, providing appropriate advice or treatment if necessary.
