It�s maybe okay for your dog to snore but if your dog snores while awake or excessively at night, then you should find out why and consult your vet. But, let�s look at some common causes.

Note
Breeds to watch out for:

Inspect the dog�s nose and throat and see if you can detect any foreign objects; use a pair of tweezers to extract the foreign object. If you fail to do so, visit a vet; he may need to perform anesthesia to remove the object.
Dogs that lay on their backs are more likely to snore than those that curl up or sleep on their stomachs.
Some dogs are born with excess tissue around their neck and throat; this tissue can interfere with a dog�s breathing under certain circumstances.
Did you know that an estimated 21% of all dogs snore? (By contrast, only 7% of our feline friends snore).
Antihistamine medications should be provided to alleviate the allergies and stop the snoring.
The symptoms of respiratory infections will disappear in up to 10 days, but the dog can carry the virus and infect other dogs, so it is important to diagnose the infection and keep the dog away from other pets.
Consider getting a dog bed that encourages them to curl up, which changes their sleeping position and may alleviate the snoring.
Does your dog have allergies? A hypo-allergenic washable bed can help with allergens inside the house.
Changing or washing the furnace filters will help cut down on airborne allergens.
