Why does my dog do this? Is something wrong? PLEASE HELP

Every time after my dog is finished eating he sits down and repeatedly puts his head up in the hair and stretches his neck out about several times and then stops is this normal or is something wrong??

Did he just start doing this? I think our Neighborlady is probably correct. Don't think it's anything serious. I swear this is true. My cat started gagging out of the blue. Didn't throw up would just gag occasionally. Not having anything to do with food. Took him to the vet and $266 later she told me he was constipated. Go figure!

He may have no chewed his food correctly, and it could have been stuck in his throat.

No this isn't normal. Try changing the type of food he eats. Try something like the smoshy food lol idk what it's called but it has a little white dog on it.
