My labs do that all the time, especially after exercise or in hot weather. My theory is that because dogs cool the air they breathe by it's passage thru their long noses it actually condenses some of the moisture from the air and results in this excess moisture. As long as it is clear and not yellow or greenish, it is not a problem.

sometimes my dog does this when the air is moist.
But, if there is ever any colored discharge then they are very sick.
