While dogs do get respiratory tract infections, normally that doesn't cause them to sneeze. Coughing would be more expected if your dog has a "cold."

Prolonged sneezing often happens when a dog gets a foreign object (foxtail, grass blade, etc.) in the nose. If he's still sneezing, he should be seen by a vet.
