Causes of panting in Dogs:

The common causes of panting in dogs are that the climate could be hot and this can make the dog to pant, so that the body cools down because of the expulsion of all the heat from the body. Another cause of panting could be that the metabolism of the dog is high even during normal times.

On the other hand, the metabolism can be increased by the presence of certain diseases too.

If the dog sees the owner after a long time, then the dog will start panting and this will last for a long time because the dog will be highly excited. On the other hand, if the dog is not very excited, then the panting might last for a shorter period of time.
