Your dog might be having kennel cough. This cough can be due to upper respiratory tract infection caused by bacteria or virus. Following are symptoms of kennel cough in dogs.

1. Dry and hacking cough
2. Runny nose
3. Sneezing
4. Conjunctivitis
5. Fever
6. Loss of appetite
7. Lethargy
8. Depression

This cough can last for 3 weeks. Antibiotics are used for bacterial infection while only cough suppressants are used in case of viral kennel cough. So, you should take your dog to vet for diagnosis and treatment.
