Snapping/popping jaw toward face
I have a 3 year old high drive working class GSD that I've had for about a year now. She has a bahavior that I haven't been able to break her of and I'd like some advise. She snaps or pops her jaw when excited or wants something. For example, if she sees a squirrel outside she will stand at the door and whine/bark with a loud pop or two in there, or as I'm letting her in and she's trotting through the door she will snap toward my arm, also when putting on her leash or bending over to pet her she will hop up an inch or two and pop/snap toward my face. She has never made contact and I would imagine this is no mistake. Anyone else out there deal with this type of behavior? It's almost as if she's irritated. I certainly am!!
