Dogs pant when they are hot and when they are anxious. If your dog is constantly panting you should make sure that she isn't over heated - if she has a thick coat she may need to see a groomer. Constant panting is not normal and could be indicative of disease or illness - have her examined by your veterinarian.

They pant when they exercise, when they are hot, they pant when they are excited. Panting is your dog's way to cool their body. Because dogs don't sweat like we do the only effective way they can cool themselves is by panting. ... Obesity is a common cause of excessive panting in dogs.
