Snorting

My 6 month old staff grunts all the time and when he's sniffing around the floor he sounds like a helicopter. Is this normal lol

Laughing ... It can be Laura.

Having said that, if you think he's doing it too much mention it to your vet next time you go just to reassure Smile

I've read it's something to do with them being so muscly and stocky and they only have small nostrils and airways :L sounds like a helicopter when he's sniffing around!

Oh yes Laughing Some do it and some don't. I'm not sure the stocky theory holds up as of my dogs it's Millie who does snuffly snorts, and she's much less stocky then Chaos.

It's crazy! All my family say they've never heard a dog do that lol. Wish I could put a video on. Was worried it might have been a respiratory problem but feel reassured now

Laughing There's a reason so many of us have piglet-based nicknames for our staffies. Mine's king of the hufflepuff truffle-hunting pig sounds. It's absurd.

Buddy snorts if he is concentrating on something or if he is fed up waiting on us humans to do as he wishes LOL I cover his crate when he sleeps the number of people who ask me what is in it as he snorts and snuffles until he gets his blanket in the right place..could never loose him that's for sure :0

Aw that so cute lol, duke grunts a lot when there's food or he's waiting for a treat etc but the helicoptering is when he's sniffing around on the floor
