|Our dog Sashi, a Rottweiler mix, had started doing this about a year ago. A few days ago, she had a major attack and did it for almost 12 hours straight. Previously she would do it for a few minutes, and stop, though sometimes it would happen multiple times per day. We noted it seemed to happen the most when the weather was humid. She never seems to show any real distress when this happens.
Yesterday I took Sashi to the vet, suspecting either something stuck up her nose, or allergies after such an intense bout of this. The vet suggested I look up videos of reverse sneezing, which turns out to be exactly what she is doing. He also confirmed she has mild allergies and if they become really bothersome, she can have some Benedryl.
As far as can tell, and based on the conversation with my vet, its nothing to worry about and it more of an annoyance than anything else. My vet did rule out nose mites or an obstruction of some sort first.
