I suspect he may be fighting off an upper respiratory tract infection. These are often viral infections but can be bacterial. If he is generally well in himself and is a young, fit dog, he should fight off a mild infection without issue and the signs should be self limiting. However if he is not showing significant improvement after 5 days, or if he develops further signs such as a cough, reduced appetite or lethargy, I would recommend having him checked over by your vet as he may benefit from a course of antibiotics and/or decongestant therapy. If he seems congested, one thing you can do at home is take him into the bathroom when you shower etc. The steam can help really loosen any mucus build up in his airways and help him clear it more effectively.
