The Dog says:
this only lends further support to the undeniable fact that dogs are DUMB.
My dog does the first part, the twitching, and a little barking in his sleep. It’s adorable. We say he’s “chasing rabbits”.
I would totally be horrified if my dog jumped up in his sleep though. That seemed really scary for the dog :(

You should have your dog checked out. I had a dog that did something similar when she was having seizures from epilepsy.
I’m no dog owner or scientist but in my brain and behavior class they teach that there is a part of the brain that keeps you from acting out your dreams, when something happens to this part of the brain it causes you to actually do the actions, which is dangerous to yourself and others. (Obviously–as we all just watched a dog run head first into a wall.) You should definitely get your dog checked out, this is serious.
That’s his tucked up tail, stuble. And “Stumble” has an “m” in the middle. Now I’ve got to go and hit my little green and blue button and see what other magic appears on the shiny screen…..
take that dog to a vet ….he’s in trouble…
Don’t worry about it at all. Except for the running into the wall. The new theory of the brain is that we’re born to sleep, that the brain is re-energised by sleep and sleep is its natural state. it gets used for a while then goes back to normal, asleep. The theory therefore says that your pup has an excellent brain. Things are really happening and it’s healthy. Wow, go those neurons!
ekm, I think this is a bit different. It seems to me that the dog wakes up just before it runs into the wall. He just has not yet made the connection that he was dreaming.
Kind of like when you are dreaming that you are falling and you wake up suddenly and push yourself up or jump.
this dog looks like it’s suffering from a seizure.
….folks that think this is funny are kinda ‘dumb’
My dog does this (up until the slamming into the wall). It’s a normal part of their development. I would take him to the vet just because he hit the wall so hard…that’s all.
This dog is having seizures, someone should turn them into the Humane Society for abuse, he needs to be on meds soon before he dies… in one of these “funny” videos they seem to be enjoying so much.
I agree Wendy dogs should/do not stand in their sleep. This dog needs help. Nothing funny about that…
I’m starting to wonder if this dog has been drugged or something….

Lol @ people who think the dog needs help. If you weren’t all morons maybe I’d take your opinions seriously, but moving in your sleep is a natural process.
It’s called a hypnagogic jerk, this dog just had a more severe version of it known as Nocturnal myoclonus. Dumbasses aside.
Funny ass video.
He was dreaming, probably had a nightmare or a really vivid dream. Nothing serious, you fucking pussies, this happens to people as well. The only danger to the dog is the fact that he ran into the wall. And he was not having a seizure you stupid pieces of shit, he was dreaming, as I said it was probably a nightmare or a really vivid dream. If he had a seizure he wouldnt be able to get up and he wouldnt move like he was running. Ive seen dogs have seizures and that isnt it, hes dreaming, yes dogs do that.
Fuck the dog whisperers, just give the dog some time, hell be fine.
Chill out. Stop making an issue of something that isn’t a big issue!!
The dog was dreaming, he woke up acting out his dream and ran into the wall.
Hasn’t anyone ever woken up doing something they were doing in the dream they were having?
Like screaming if it’s a nightmare for example?
Stop trying to psychoanalize everything.

That dog should try my new dream cleansing product.
I think your dog needs help and i find it disturbing that you find this funny and are posting it all over the internet. When we sleep, our bodies are supposed to become immobilized so that we dont act out our dreams (as this is obviously dangerous). Your dog is physically acting out his/her whole dream and then waking up in horror. Its like every time he/she tries to asleep he/she experiences that scary moment we sometimes feel of falling off our bed. Your dog should be able to have a good sleep and i think you need to go see your vet about this. Some twitching and moving IS normal, but fully acting out its dream is not. Your dog is not experiencing a positive thing, when it wakes up he/she is horrified with its tail between its legs…. please ask your vet about what you can do.
god you guys are dumb says:
my dog does pretty much the same thing every once in a while and when i told the vet about it she said don’t worry about it unless he hits the wall really hard. god you people need to fucken chill the fuck out. yes i get that we all love our pets but i mean come on think rationally. we all have had dreams that affect us when we wake up. i.e. i had a dream a couple of years ago that I fell from a tree and broke my arm. when I woke up my marm hurt like hell for a week. another more vivid dream. I was having sex with Emily Proctor(yes it was great until I woke up to my girlfriend hitting me. apparently while I was having sex in my dream I was actually having sex with my girlfriend lying next to me as well.
MAN you guys are fucking RETARDED!!!!!!!!! Dogs run in their dreams a lot. Mine does it all the time. He doesn’t need to go to a vet, you need to go to a get fucking shot in the face party.
The dog is fine. My dogs used to do that all the time and heck, *I* sometimes wake up from my dreams still acting out what I saw. You people seriously need to remove the vibrator from your anuses and get a sense of humor. Or just go kill yourself .
