Hahaha! I call him my little pig because it sounds like a baby piglets oinks!We have a snorter here too lol. I think it has something to do with their trachea. I have heard its common. It's kind of embarrassing, isn't it?
That is what it sounds like. It scares me sometimes cause it almost seems like he can't breath! But I rub his neck and make him relax a bit and he just smiles at me after.Google reverse sneezing. See if you can find a video of it. Does it sound like that? If so, it is perfectly normal in Chis when they get excited or over exerted.

How can you tell the difference in the two? I'm 100% sure he is reverse sneezing but just in case how do you know when its a collapsed trachea?It is most likely reverse sneezing, which is nothing to worry about. It is often confused with a collapsed trachea, which is serious. They are two separate things- reverse sneezing is a spasm in the throat.
I cover my dogs nostrils so they have to swallow or stroke their throats. That usually stops it. We call it "snorkeling" at my house.
