    DefaultWhat's that clicking noise when my lab puppy sniffs intently?

    Hi, i have a yellow male lab 4 mos- he appears totally healthy etc- eats alot drinks alot -pees and poops alot hi energy. 32lbs

    Since the start my lil buddy's schnoz seems to click like a flap opening and closing when he sniffs intently- like tracking a crumb in the carpet. i have other dogs as well as another 3yr old yellow and he sniffs like that thereis no noise. My puppy breathes fine and when he breathes the air when he gets a whiffof something -he sniffs normal but tracking on the ground he sniffs and theres that clicking. Vet gave him clean bill of health i'd hate to spend the money to find out its nothing.

    also he snores!!!! for such a lil dog its like a lumber mill.

    They lick when they are scenting ! That's the sound of their tongues on the roof of their mouth ! Quite normal !

    strange? it seems like a flap in the nose opening and closing- like a butterfly flap on a carb. i thought maybe it was a lab thing in part to keep water out when they swim or something. so its their tongues clicking the roof of the mouth as they sniff? i guess my dog is trying to taste what he smells?
