So…I know that this sounds really odd.
I’ve already asked a vet and he really didn’t have an answer.
My dog has terrible bad dreams…I got her at 2.5 years and she’s now 5. They go in phazes and she had a rough night last night.
At first it seemed like severly lucid dreaming. Her entire body would be twiching, vibrating, and she cries rather forlornly. I always could wake her so my vet said they could not be seizures. I’d gentally tap her and call her name until she woke up.
I know that “cooing” and being worried can cause a dog to stress so I try to act normal. “Ok Purpledoggie, lets get some food!” or “Outside, Purpledoggy? Wanna go outside?” (also, she seems to wake quite easily…so if she’s being loud I accidentally wake her when I am trying to see what the heck is going on in the middle of the night)
Lately she has been getting worse and worse, she seems nervous to leave my side (not like her), I can get her to hop off my bed with some reluctance and she’ll cower in a corrner. When I approch her she has her head low and licks me like crazy. I have never hit this dog, EVER. I have never been anything but a good owner. She’ll shake it off in 2-5 minutes and then be her normal self.
I’ve had dogs with lucid dreams before, and usually I let them ride it out. She trashes about so much that I’m afraid she’ll fall off the bed. She gets decent excercize, eats decent food…anyone else ever seen somthing like this?
