Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. I see cases similar to this quite frequently. It is called food bloat. Basically they just eat a lot of "food" and make their stomach distended. For the vast majority of these cases, there is nothing needed to be done but to let them rest and digest their extra large meal. What I have owners watch for is non-productive vomiting. Larger breed dogs could have this cause a twisted stomach, but it isn't common at all. IF he was my dog and I had him do this, I'd just let him rest and monitor.
Sounds like he's doing what they typically do. They are "full" and they want to rest and have some water. I would let him continue to rest and just monitor. IF he starts to act really uncomfortable with trying to vomit, then he needs to be seen.
Absolutely no problem! Tell him to stay out of trouble. :)
