Sneezy dog

So I have another one. On our walks dpup loves to turn around and stop to boop me with her nose and look at me. I’ve noticed it happening loads more. And if out with DH she will sometimes boop him too even if I’m the one holding the lead - I noticed that seems to be if he’s on his phone and not paying attention, so I’m becoming a fan of the booping!
Is she herding me (not a herding breed) asking for attention, telling me she’s scared?

Would love to hear if any one else is noticing any little doggy quirks with all this free time now too!

I’d assume it was change in airborne particles (dust/pollen/etc)

DPuppy sneezes sometimes outside, usually after snuffling at something, so I tend to assume it’s temporary irritation and expelling something from a nostril

I'd assume it was the sunlight. I often sneeze in bright light. And if I feel that I need to sneeze I look in the direction of the sun.

Our dog sneezes regularly but he has allergies and is on daily piriton

Not sure, but I know when play fighting dogs sneeze to communicate that they are happy and only playing.

Maybe it's out of excitement in going out?

My mums dog sneezes when she sees the lead 😂.

Lighthearted question really as I suddenly have a lot of time on my hands to notice things
I can’t find this online anywhere too
Our pup sneezes once maybe twice almost every time she goes outside

Does not continue to sneeze
And it doesn’t matter where we are (front/back garden, getting out the car at the park etc) doesn’t really sneeze any other time
She has done it since 8 weeks old.

Any ideas?
