Weird sounds during play

Hi!
We've had Toby almost 2 months now and he is the most adorable puppy ever! Very smart and well behaved, quickly potty trained. We are just in love with him.
He is very relaxed most of the day with the occasional energy outburst (morning and evening) with biting and running around like crazy. We've read these are normal, he's still a baby after all, but what worries me are the sounds he makes during those crazy times. It's something between coughing and sneezing, like loud grunts.. It sounds scary, but it does not seem to bother him. At his last vet appointment I asked and the vet said that as long as he does not seem to suffer, it's ok.
Did your Havi's made such sounds? I want to not worry, but somehow I can't....

Adorable little puppy! Did the vet say it was reverse sneezing? You can probably find a video of it on Utube, if you aren't sure what it (is.
I am somewhat ashamed to admit that with every dog I've owned(several) that probably every one of them have been to the vet for this. It's always "reverse sneezing". Every dog seems to do it a bit differently though. I feel like such an idiot every time.

The vet said that in the way I described it, it does not sound like reverse sneezing. I just saw some videos on YouTube, and it's definately not that. Or it is, but in a much less scary form (Thank God!). 🙂

The best advice I got here on the forum (when our vet also suggested reverse sneezing) is to take video of it! Even if you donít catch it for a while, and it turns out it isnít dangerous, youíll end up with some cute puppy playing video that youíll be happy about when heís not so little anymore. On the off chance itís something else, you have something to show the vet.

Our puppy got something stuck in his nose once and he made weird sounds until it popped out. We thought he had a cold until a little wad of paper popped out. And it only popped out because he sneezed when I was hairspraying DDís dance hair and I forgot he was laying in her lap.

Willow makes funny sounds during the zoomies too. Kind of sounds like an outboard motor on a boat! Kind of grunting, growling. Hard to explain but I've heard that other havies make noises during zoomies.

Denver definitely has a large repertoire of sounds as well. He has a growly grunty sounds just when he runs ... like heís just revelling in the joy of it. He has a gurgly sound when I pick him up for snuggles under my chin. He has his play growl for tugging. Then the squeaks for when the cat is bugging him.

And thatís just the beginning

Our Danny is 8 years old and he makes a funny noise every time you pick him up. If he wants something he will lots of time make a funny whimpers whine.
Never really worried about it.

Reverse sneezing, they do this when very excited. Best to let him calm down.
Pup will eventually learn to play to his limit, you can help him with this.
