You shouldn't be too worried, he was probably just excited about something. If you see some sort of erratic behavior, you may want to take him to a vet, but otherwise it shouldn't be an issue.

ok, so for anyone who didn't know, a dogs heart beats a lot faster then a humans, it will seem way to fast to you. but if your still paranoid, you can take it to a vet and spend hundreds of dollars to get the same answer.

I'm sure you know your dogs normal way of acting.If it looks wrong to you then you should take him to the vet.My 9 year old Basset's heart was racing when I took him to the vet.Come to find out he had two sided heart failure.It was to late for my baby,but if you catch it in time they can help yours live longer.With meds.he can live a normal life. Good Luck!

your not paranoid... I just brought my dog to the vet bc she was passing out.. turns out she has a bad heart. it beats too fast. and the vet said good thing I brought her in bc she could die. I will get her back tomorrow from the vet hopefully.. but she will have to be medicated for the rest of her life =/
