Hi Lizel, nice to hear from you. I really would suggest that you speak to your vet about this. It could well be physical and you need to rule this out. However, have known a lot of dogs that have had no airway problems and perform the type of behaviour you describe, from pure over excitement.
What I would suggest is after checking with your vet, that you work on getting the dog to calm down more and if you are engaging in a game etc where the dog does get too excited, rather get into the practice of stopping before excitement levels get too high, calling dog, settling him clamly for a few minutes, then playing again. Thanks Scotty
