Its pretty dark and you need to turn the volume up to hear it. I think when he gets a new scent, he does this wierd thing. He starts popping his jaw and making this wierd noise. His head moves and bobs around. Its really funny to watch. First time was when he first smelled a baby. He did it for awhile.
How funny. I've never heard a dog make that noise before. Boo does get a really twitchy jaw like that when he's excited/intense about a retrieve.

Yes my dog does the same thing, not often but he does do that same thing.
What is he doing it for. I am thinking he is taking in a new smell. But I am clueless. I am not sure what he would have smelled new last night. Its really funny to watch. Looks like he is chewing something, but nothing is in there.
That is the exact impression i always got, that he was taking in a smell and trying to remember it. Probably nothing to do with it but it seems that way.Originally Posted by Mambo
that's funny. I liked how as soon as he licked his lips he was done!
Did a google search and saw this on another dawg message board.
"Do you mean they are chattering & tasting a scent? A lot of dogs will do this when they 'taste' a bitch in season or smell something exciting. One of our females also does it when she's been holding her ball for too long (not a shar pei) "
There were also a number of other like post on other boards thinking it had to do with scent or the dawg being excited about something.
very interesting. No bitches in heat at my house...
Its prtty funny to watch. I have to catch it on camera during the day one day.
cool. Never seen that before
Now that is very stange. Mambo you are too much!
