Do you wake your dog up when he/she is dreaming?

I don't unless I'm trying to sleep and he's keeping me awake. I played fetch with my dog about an hour ago so he was really tired and crashed in his bed. He was having a dream--I love it when their cheeks puff in and out. I always wonder what he's dreaming about. A bigger dog chasing him? A biscuit he can't reach? Going to the vet?

2. I will talk sweetly and encourage the cat to win in the dream

My former girl kitty would jerk, snuff and "run" in her sleep, she was a tiny stray and I believe had a rough time on the mean streets of Seattle before we adopted her. So I believed she was having nightmares and would try to talk her through them, she would often wake up and then stretch in happiness/relief.

3. Mine makes little yelping sounds.

The first time she did it I thought she was having a seizure.

7. My parents' dog would "bubble."

In his enclosed doggy bed, it would sound like a bark/bubble sound.

8. I have littermates and they

sometimes dream in sync. When they first came home they would dream of nursing, now it seems to be more running.

They may also dream that they are naked in public because they ARE.

12. Not usually, even though I always assume the one is dreaming that he's tearing me to pieces.

He bays and growls a lot in his dreams.

14. I try with quietly saying "good puppy" over and over again, unless it's a running dream.

 

If they're wimpering, the good puppy thing usually works, and if not a few belly rubs will.
