|Dakota panted a LOT when she was young. And, we're talking to the point of swelled tongue, dripping saliva. However, I think it was a combination of 2 things:
1) stress, and most likely mine, not hers. I have a very stressful job, and unfortunately sometimes can't leave it at the office. She feeds off of my moods. When I'm stressed, she tries calming behaviors, but sometimes it ultimately stresses her out also.
2) she's just a very hot-natured pup. She can't stand warm temps and actually avoids the sun spots coming through the windows. She's like me, in that respect, so I completely understand her panting.
Health-wise she checks out a-ok...so those are just my observations and deductions after living with her for now 2 years
Of course, a trip to the vet in your case wouldn't hurt, just to be safe.
