I ask this because there was a question by Monica Rae and she described the symptoms exactly of kennel cough. We got our dog from the pound and he has all his shots but developed kennel cough. He would get stiff as a board, gasp for breath and that would last for about 20 seconds. It’s nothing to worry about. The vet and articles online say to rub the throat and talk calmly to the dog while that’s happening. Eventually, it stops but it took about 6 weeks. No vet visit is needed. A lot of dogs get it, even when they have not been in a kennel.
My dog was vaccinated against it but got it anyway.
