Why does my dog whine in his sleep ?

I have heard all the time that dogs dream, just like humans do, but are they supposed to whine ? I have a 9 month old Jack Russell Terrier, and he whines occasionally . What should I do about this ? Do I need to comfort him when he does whine ? Please help . Thank you !

I don't know if this helps but i have two girl boxers named Maxine and Lilly the both whine now and then and we say she may be having a bad dream or have a dream about running or feeding from her mom,but we just tap them or give them a little shake on the leg to wake them up.

You dont need to do anything. I have 5 dogs.. .and a couple of them whine in their sleep and one even runs as he lays on his side. Funny but nothing wrong with him.

He's having simple-minded dog dreams. Mine twitches his legs when he's asleep like he's chasing a rabbit.

He's probably having a bad dream... My dog does that and I just shake him awake and he stops. Dogs have dreams too!
