I think what you are describing is Charlie's "startle reaction" -- do run this by your vet. I think the major concern is, if startled when sound asleep, he might snap (instead of just growl). Obviously not something he is doing on purpose but it can have negative outcome. Maggie had a serious problem in this regard and, since she was sharing my bed, it was definitely a concern. Curiously, since being on Prozac, this has completely disappeared. I think it has to do with the change in quality of sleep. One of those things I'll never know for sure but glad it's gone! (P.S. I am not recommending that Charlie go on Prozac -- Maggie had lots of OCD behaviors which is why we started her on it after many consultations with specialists.)
