I sneeze at my dog and he sneezes back.


My dog will also sneeze as a way to tell us he needs to go outside.


In packs of wild dogs, if a dog gets carried away while playing, and goes too far with a superior, they can apologize with the ‘play pose’, and the superior will generally forgive the transgression.


I just tried sneezing at my dog and he ran outside.
