Oh and apparently surgery is available for severe cases.. Maybe that's your route if it's really bad?

My dog does this too, but not for that long of a period. We rub his throat, and try to get him to swallow. This helps a lot in making him stop the coughing.

If you don't already, make sure to walk him on a body harness rather than a collar.
