Dog will gag after getting up?

I have a 2 1/2 year old lab/pit mix. The sweetest pup ever! We have been doing some food changes over the last month and he is now on Canidae Salmon Grain Free and LOVES it, but I've noticed that when he stands up after laying down for a while, he will act like something is caught in his throat and will try to cough it up or gag. Almost like vomiting, but no vomit. He isn't due for his kennel cough shot until April (he does go to Doggy Daycare twice a week) and is otherwise very healthy. He drinks water and eats with no problem. He is a little constipated though. My thoughts are either adjustments to the new food, kennel cough (I heard dogs can still get it even if vaccinated) or acid reflux? Any help would be appreciated.

I also wanted to add that he has had reverse sneezing also....could that be related to food allergies?

Ok I'll make a wild guess here, but you really need your Vet to examine him. My guess is, he may have allergies, causing drainage, which could collect somewhere, maybe his trachea, when he gets up perhaps there is drainage into his lungs, which would cause him to cough and gag. Please have your Vet check him, since I am certainly not a qualified Vet, by any means.
