Occasional Head Tremors

by Kerry

Our 9 month old male Mini Aussie has had 2 episodes of this. From what I can gather it is called idiopathic head tremors. It is not harmful to the dog but still scary to watch. My question is: has anyone else's Aussie had this and if so did they outgrow it? It has happened both times after being home from camping. He is alert while his little head is bobbling and it only lasts about 2-3 minutes tops. After he is perfectly normal, I know it is not an epileptic seizure I have had dogs that have so I know the difference. I would just like to know if this is something he will grow out of.
