Nightmares OR seizures of some sort?

Since day one of having him, Bronson has what seems to be nightmares? When he goes into a deep sleep he twitches A LOT and cries/whimpers from time to time. He lays in our bed so usually we just budge him or get his attention and he snaps out of it and seems to be fine. Is this normal or should I be concerned? He is 1.5 years old and has been doing this since we brought him home at 10 weeks old but recently I heard a story from a pet owner and I am a bit worried.

It's totally normal. Molly does it pretty often. If you can wake them up it's likely not a seizure.

Sounds like Bronson is dreaming. One of my Goldens had seizures and what you describe is not at all like a seizure.

Enjoy your pup!

Sounds like totally normal dreaming to me. I do admit, after living with a seizure dog for 3 years, when my new dog does that, my heart skips a beat and I always softly wake her. Old habits, I guess



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

Bentley dreams every time he falls asleep. I think it's cute but it annoys Ky so she leaves the room

Sometimes it seems like Brooks is running in his sleep from the way his legs are moving.

Oh good! Glad its not only him and he is only dreaming!! I never really thought too much into it until someone brought it to my attention so I got a little worried!

All my dogs do this. I was concerned at first but its completely normal.

Now I just tell my dogs "Get the squirrels!" while they sleep.

Yep. I just think that they're chasing squirrels when they do this!
