We will soon collect our new pup. The breeder is sending me regular videos of him. I've noticed that he seems to blink more with one eye than both. He will blink a few times with his right eye (always the same eye, like winking) and then blink with both eyes. He's been health checked and nothing has been mentioned to suggest there is a problem with his eyes, but should I be concerned?

His eyes are open wide and clear, no gunk or anything to suggest infection

Dogs eyelids work independently of each other - so it's common for them to blink just one whereas we tend to blink both at the same time.

Unless there was some other sign or the blinking was excessive and accompanied by other signs it was irritating him then I would not worry.

Thank you @ButOneMistressHere that's very reassuring.
