    Hiccups are an irritation of the diaphragm. When they eat/drink to quickly. Hence why puppies hiccup alot!
    As long as they arn't lasting longer than a day then theres nothing to worry about

    It is possible to train a dog to leave the room before it farts...

    First we taught various dogs "Out" for leave the room.

    Then we'd say "POO - STINK - Out", and make the dog leave the room if it had farted.

    We had one dog that would refuse to leave if it wasn't his fart. Which was really interesting at dinner parties if some other guest tried to blame the dog for the smell.

    And we had one dog that eventually learned to leave the room *before* she farted. This worked until my (at the time) teenage brother started using "poo stink" as a party trick and unmade the association.

    Frosty - so far, only has horrible farts if she gets into naughty food like onion, or tinned dog food! I don't feed her eggs at all, and not much raw meat. And no cabbage or asparagus.

    My girl gets the hiccups if she gets told off for anything, it seems to be a nervous reaction. But because she's so acutely aware of trouble she is very good. It doesn't help her much, because if one of the others gets scolded she'll start hiccuping too!

    Deebo hiccups for a couple of mins too everytime he wakes up. And after he eats he burps, I almost think he's going to throw up...
    Oh yeah, he farts like a champ.

    You can actually get special designed dog bowls for dogs who wolf their food down. They look like they have a Lego piece stuck in the middle, so the dog has to eat around it and it is impossible for them to "suck in" their food...it works with Sumo Also..."inhaling" their food can cause Bloat, so it is better to stop the behaviour
