Snoring is usually from an elongated soft palate, a result of having a squished nose. These can be shortened surgically... and will not only help with snoring, but your pup will be able to breathe better and enjoy a better quality of life too. This is a common surgery in bulldogs and other squash-nosed dogs.

Liberty snores like a trucker.

She doesn't have a shortened or squashed muzzle, but she does have a lot of scarring around her mouth, so I wonder if some of that caused any of her less lady-like emissions. Right now, she sleeps in another room, so it doesn't bother anyone unless she's napping midday, and then I just get to see the other animals watch her sleep like she's an alien, so it's sort of amusing.

Pinch her toes! LOL roflmao Zee gets kneed in the head regularly because she vibrates the bed she snores so loud and deep. I am surprised the neighbors don't complain. Last night I reached over and pinched her toes. She jumped off the bed. Problem solved!! LOL

Bruno snores too....but he is a bulldog mix so I am not too shocked. What does bother me (or rather concern me) is that he snores sometimes with just regular breathing. Or it sounds like snoring but is just loud breathing when he is awake. Then you add in the reverse sneezing he did and I was seriously upset. LOL

PS: He doesn't sleep with us but my husband snores like a freight train...so I am in your shoes just with a different species.
