I have a nine year old Chow and she snores like a diesel. If I bump her with my foot she stops for while but then starts up again. She really likes sleeping on the floor near the bed but I can't get used to the motoring, how do I get the dog to shut the **** up at night?

I don't think you can. She's not a pushed-in snout type of breed (like a Boston terrier or Pug), so that's not the reason. But we had a Mastiff mix with a long snoot and he snored like a freight train.

You have, though, found the secret to temporarily stopping anyone's snoring (even a human's), get them to wake ever so slightly and change position.

My nine year old Black Lab cross (might be part Chow because of the black spotted tongue) snores as well. Just saying her name stops the snoring.

Yep, when sleeping our springer spaniel would snore, he would also at times let out a few howls & other strange noises. We assumed he was dreaming. Sometimes we would say "cats" or "birds in the garden" He was immediately wide awake & on the case. Cats & birds beware.

I've found that dogs are wonderful listeners as well.
you can sit down on the couch & the dog will sit next to you whilst you tell it about all the great things you've been doing or more often that not, all the crap stuff. And the dog hangs onto every word you say. His ears twich, eyes sparkle & he starts dribbling worse thyan a baby. If you got a dog you don't need a shrink

Cats twitch a lot when they sleep & they aren't very good listeners IMO. still they are better than goldfish

I have given up trying to talk intelligently to my Chow about the snoring, but my wife still talks to the Chow like it really understands. It's a rather frightening proposition given that I cannot understand my wife, or my dog, or most anything else, most of the time.

To make matters worse, I thought I overheard both my Chow and Wife conspiring with the Rabbi's German Shorthaired Pointer to convert to Orthodox Judaism.
