Q. Why does my poodle sneeze only while walking never while sleeping, eating, playing. Her nose is runny too. She doesn't show any other symtoms. Help.
A. Your dog may be sensitive to something she encounters while on her walks that she is not exposed to at any other time. Try a different route to see if the sneezing occurs less or at a different part of the walk, try walking her at a different time of day and make a note of where it is and what she's doing when she sneezes. If the symptoms persist, it's worth getting her checked by your vet for any irritation or foreign substance found in her nasal passages.
