    When the sneezing persisted we came off the line and gave him some water. Then came back and ran a land blind and a water blind. Both with orange 2" bumpers. No problem in picking up.
    It’s difficult to tell from the video but is it possible he inhaled or ingested spear grass or foxtail? I’ve seen similar symptoms when this occurred.

    Your video brings back memories.
    One day in training, my dog completed a retrieve just like yours did, and then started sneezing.. Uncontrollably for quite awhile.. We looked and looked in her mouth, up her nose, couldn’t see anything..’
    Two days later ,training again, as she came back to me she Yelped, dropped the bumper, came to my side and sat quivering. It looked as though I shocked her with the collar!
    I thought for sure, something was wrong with the collar.. took it off,, a bird or two later,, the same thing..
    She was in gradually increasing pain for three more days..
    Long story,, it turned out to be a grass awn of cheat grass. Lodged in the back of her mouth, right at the jaw bone joint.. It finally abscessed,,, and the Vet removed it.. I held her head still as the Vet worked.. I could not believe the “Stuff” that came out of that dog.. Last squeeze,,out popped a cheat grass urn..
    The sneezing in your video looked very familiar.. The story of pain did too..
    I hope you get this figgered out.. Nothin worse that something wrong with our dogs..

    Good luck..

    All in all good news they found it. I dealt with those when I was in CA. Took one from every orifice possible, between toes, and even the sides of longer hair dogs. Glad we don't have much of that here in the Midwest. Saw one cat swallow one left the stomach and got into the gastro-hepatic ligament. A small ligament that connects the stomach to the liver, that was a very long surgery to find that. Cat did well after.

    Hello,
    How to take care of your pup's stomach?
    Which food is good for their stomach?

    Same symptoms with my MH about 20 years ago, started with yelping when picking up a bird, had quickly progressive trismus with the only finding was tenderness over right masseter and possible evidence of periosteostis of right mandible,treated empirically with antibiotics/steroids with resolution and assumed grass awn or other FB but nothing found. Seen the same in humans although aggressive I&D usually included and usually found post op surgery or trauma.
