How do I get my dog to stop reverse sneezing?

DRAdam Christman shows in the video below how to stop the reverse sneeze.

Reverse sneezing itself rarely requires treatment. If the sneezing stops, the spasm is over. Oftentimes, you can massage the dog’s throat to stop the spasm; sometimes it’s effective to cover one or both of the nostrils, which makes the dog swallow, which clears out whatever the irritation is and stops the sneezing.

So no need to worry but if this is something that your dog is doing A LOT then maybe they have allergies and need to be seen by the vet.  Feel free to talk more to your vet about reverse sneezing.
