Malia doesn't really play with people, but when she is playful or being demanding she will huff and snap (more of a slap) her teeth.

Magnum, like many, will use the snap to communicate many things. Generally, when leading up to the "full blown smile" he will snap several times.

I call it clacking & Tesla does it on the start line in Agility, during heel work, feeding time, the list goes on..... It's basically any time she is anticipating something good...

Odin does it when we are playing and I will snap my teeth back at him. I just have to watch out when he gets really worked up because he does this rapid fire snapping where there is no visible gap in between each snap lol its funny as hell but this is normally the point I tell him to be "nice" and he calms down!

Funny, Shelly - I call it 'clacking' also. The only one of ours who did this was Alex... it was so funny, and cute. We called him the alligator or crocodile, and I also sometimes called him "Farfel"... when I was a kid, Nestle chocolate milk powder had commercials with a puppet dog named Farfel - he had a big mouth, and after he sang the jingle, he would snap his jaws shut with a big CLACK... that's what Alex reminded me of. The following is NOT the original by a long stretch - but they used part of one of the 1950's commercials, so you'll see Farfel at the very end...

Scarlet would always snap her teeth together. I called it the alligator snap, cause that is what it sounded like.

I thought only Jordan did that! We can hear her snapping her teeth together when her and Jasper start to play, lips curled and teeth showing the entire time. I can't help but laugh. For someone that didn't know her they would think she was a pretty vicious dog that was ready to take Jasper's head off.

Brinks does it during play when she gets REALLY excited! It is so loud, I don't know how it doesn't hurt her jaw!

Snapping teeth, while playing?!

Bentley does this too. Usually in demand of food or to be let on the couch, or to play with a toy together.

Quentin does it when he wants something. Like when I am fixing his food, or his Daddy is putting on his coat to take him out. It worried me the first time he did it. It was like he was freezing or something.

Katie, this sounds like idiopathic Head Tremors. Although I did see a post on here the other day where they now may have more information on it. It is a sticky on this area of the forum.

Mariano is called the dobergator... he snaps so loudly, you can hear it across the park! When he is playing, he will snap through the air, and is very careful not to touch anyone with it (thank goodness). And when he is SUPER happy, he wil SNAP SNAP SNAP SMILE SNAP SMILE SNAPE lol. At first, it made me nervous, because I though other dog owners would not like it around their dogs, but everyone has thought it is pretty funny, and I adore when he smiles at me!

Duchess does it with a very faint vocal sound when she is trying to talk to us and get us to do something. However, when you mentioned the dog park, Duchess does it in a bit more agressive manner at the park when a dog approaches her in a way she finds pushy. It's very apparent she is saying back off I don't like what you're doing.
