It seems to me that Marley's breathing is fast . Have others noticed this in their pups, then have out grown it. Is it normal for doodles? Just wondering, thanks

I think I read somewhere that the breathing heavy and fast cools them down because they don't perspire.

Jackson sure did when he was younger, now I never notice it. It worried me greatly, but looks like this is very common!

Picco had his moments of fast breathing that worried me too but this discussion just made me realize that he must have grown out of it in the last couple months. He's 2-1/2 yrs old now.  Marley is such a little cutie! Similar to Picco as a pup but a little lighter in color.

Thanks everyone! I feel I can relax now and enjoy Marley being the wonderful puppy he is ! He's 13 weeks old today.....

Ah...definitely noticed this with Eli. He pants a lot but he also gets excited a lot and I just figure this is the immature puppy brain. He does seem to be calming down more but that could be my vivid imagination and wishful thinking!

I remember that I worried about exactly the same thing - I thought maybe Dulcie was just too hot, but she has definitely grown out of it.

I remember reading somewhere that puppies are like human babies. They start out breathing quite quickly compared to adults but then slow down as they get older. They also breathe faster to cool off, or calm down from play or strenuous activity, or when they get excited, just like people.

I have noticed the same thing in Trixie, or did when she was smaller...not so much any more.

Puppies dream more so than the adult .. it is the way their brain processes experiences..     Unless he/she is showing stress while breathing, running,   playing NOT to worry...

Can't really say, guess I just notice it more when he is laying down and he is not always sleeping. He does dream a lot ! I wonder what they are dreaming about??
