    So what I do - is very gently and slowly - push. I push my arm or hand or what ever bit of me she's grabbed - further down the hatch until she finds it uncomfortable and tries to spit me out. And then I hold for a second and let her spit me out.

    This is great and works a treat.
    I don't need to do it often but I love the look he gives me as he steps back.

    My boy has been doing the pulling at my hand thing have been ignoring so he doesn't do it for long...

    When he is really excited he gets a snorting, gagging noise up and his head is out front and throat is stiff. This one concerns me because I think he is choking. Sound passes after his throat is rubbed.

    Some breeds of dogs really do have a hard time breathing properly when they're excited. Mostly the ones that look like they've run into a brick wall at speed and squashed their nose into their face like a rugby player. Not sure if Cavs have that problem. He may just have a soft palette which vibrates when he breathes fast - like snoring - but I don't know if that's good or bad - might be one to put on the list of questions for next time you see the vet. At least it's easy sorted for you.

    Thanks Hyacinth, will be asking the vet next time we are in there. Maxi does have a sort of squashed face, but not as squished as a pugs face. So I think it might be a soft pallete issue, as he used to make a funny sound when drinking water until I raised his water bowl. Plus he snores....
