Gwen can't contract the infectious agents that cause coughing and sneezing in people but dogs and people can cough and sneeze if they're both suffering from an inhalant allergy or irritant. Are you seeing any other signs of such an allergy in Gwen - pruritis (itching), usually, and perhaps a conjunctivitis?
