My eight week puppy does several times a day, especially after she eats.  
The vet told me it was prefectly normal!

It is normal but a retired vet once told me if your dog is losing weight too then it could be a sign of worms.

Hiccups are caused by spasms of the diaphraghm, same as in humans.
It is NOT caused by worms, and is totally normal.
