Sleeping Dog Yelps

I know dogs dream as humans do but how do you handle it?

My shih tzu yelps throughout the night and sometimes I'll say his name so he wakes up. I know I can't stop him but should I be interrupting his dreams? Any suggestions besides putting him in another room? I can't bear to be without him and it wouldn't be fair to our other pup~ :o

Den-Den dreams sometimes. I just start stroking him softly. He doesn't wake up, just relaxes and breathes deeply. Maybe in his dream, he feels more secure because of the stroking.
