My boxer snores!

Hey y'all! I am trying to figure out a way to CPAP my boxer. It woks for me, the dawg is next.
She snores louder than DW! I can hold my own if I sleep without the CPAP.
Ginger is the worst! The kids even hear her in their room.
I joke about the CPAP, does anyone have any ideas, other than ear plugs?
LOL

Boxers, like my Boston Terrier, have the short snouts. To my knowledge, there is no way to stop the snoring, it's just in the way their head is built. It's not a weight issue like it might be with other breeds. We know a number of Boston owners who have been researching extensively with no success, and I wouldn't expect them to find any.

We have a doberman that snores. She is a big girl at over 100lbs but not fat. She can rattle the windows, we just take it as she is sleep good. Odd thing is if she is in MY chair she does not snore.

Our two year bullmastiff can snore with best of them, we have noticed that when he chooses to use his pillow the snoring is not as loud. We love the big guy-- snoring and all.

We have had Boxers over the years and all snored. Now we have 1 Boxer 1 Boston Terrier and 2 French Bulldogs and they all snore. It can get really loud in the motor home LOL

If he's so close that you can hear him snoring, maybe it's time for him to move out of your bedroom.

Or for you to move out of his!

How do you get the plugs in their little ears? Not sure why that works but good to know. Lol.
