    Question About snoring issues

    Hi! I just wanna ask about snoring issues? Does your dog snores during night? Is there smth you can do about it? Does somebody use earplugs? We want to buy one, but this is something scares us - snoring is a big problem for us. I usually waking up my husband to tell to stop snoring Earplugs can help? Love English Bulldog a lot, so it's NO!! for other dogs.

    Mine very rarely snore. Just like people,some snore,some don't. Elongated soft palate or nares that are too narrow could also cause snoring.My poor husband,I couldn't stand it when he snored,but I love hearing a dog snore ( if it's not for health reasons...)

    Nyala sleeps in the living room so I don't hear her.

    I personally don't believe that a bulldog is the breed for you if snoring is intolerable. I have had 5 bulldogs altogether now and every one of them snored. Even the ones that had elongated palate surgery. I'm sure there are probably exceptions but most bulldogs will snore. Ear plugs would work if you don't mind having them in your ears at night. bulldogs are somewhat loud in general with grunting and snorting etc. Other than surgery to help with airflow and ear plugs I think it's just something you accept when you own a bulldog.

    I've had three beautiful EBDs and they All snored to varying degrees. Agreed that Bulldogs can be noisy in general. Snoring would be the least of the issues �� Just a thought..you could see about fostering one. Unfortunately, our Humane Society here usually has at least one because too many people get them without realizing the issues. Our Humane Society has fostering programs, perhaps yours would as well.

    I get concerned if I don't hear snoring. The silence would wake me up and I would check to make sure they were still breathing.

    Every once in awhile whopper will get into a position where he is completely silent and I'm like.... "what's wrong with whopper!"

    I call it bulldog white noise. As soon as he lays down he starts snoring but I'm pretty certain he's not really asleep yet.

    I agree! When Castor had soft palate surgery he went from being generally very loud to stealth mode and we found ourselves worrying and running round looking for him as we couldn't hear where he was. Now, a few years later, he's back to snoring (his breathing is still excellent, though) and I feel more relaxed. If his snoring is too loud, we just move him a bit and the snoring will stop.

    Yup, they all snore to some degree. The funny thing is that I can't sleep unless I hear it, just like other said. Its like a lullaby to me, and I don't hear him to some extent I get up to check on him. Its either a louder snore, or a low snore... I love it.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I am another one that loves doggy snores. I find them soothing and completely different to human snoring which drives me INSANE. I use earplugs when my husband gets loud and digging him the ribs doesn't work, Monty's don't bother me at all. If snoring really bothers you though, I would certainly think twice about a bulldog or any other short nosed breed.
