Has he been vaccinated for kennel cough?  Was he around other dogs?  That would be a thought if the situation was right.  How old is this dog?  Any history of heart issues?  How is he acting otherwise.  It's not as typical for dogs to get a "cold" (upper respiratory)...but a bit more information would be helpful.

Is the cough productive, non-productive?  Is it only after exercise?  There are numerous things that could cause a cough...non-serious to serious.  Depends on how the dog is acting otherwise too.

It's possible the dog does have some sort of respiratory tract infection, although I've never known dogs to get colds.

I think your friend should probably take the dog to the vet, just to ensure he hasn't got anything serious.

it sounds like allergies...yep, they do get em.  I would take the little guy to the vet though.  Preventive measures for our little friends.
