I redirect like crazy. Pan used to be really bad with crotch sniffing Teagan, so far it has diminished a lot since I have been redirecting. He also started teeth chattering and I kicked that in the butt right away and so far it has not been a problem for a while. Ask me again once he hits maturity.

Panzer will not be altered so redirecting and training will be my go to when it comes to his gross manly things.

Neutering will not help. Gavroche does this ALL THE TIME. But at least he's cute when he does it, because lips lol.

Logan rarely does it and he's intact.

Recon did this a lot, and Frag will do it to Sir...

I just redirect. Kept them leashed for a while to prevent it (stopping the behavior/habit from being possible) and worked on calling them away. The head starts to drop and they are recalled and rewarded. No chattering for a while!

My parent's dog did this CONSTANTLY when he was intact. It stopped almost totally after he was neutered.

Frag's neutered and Recon still tries after his neuter.

Both of my boys do it on occasion, but only with stuff on the ground. I just redirect when I see them do it. It's gross, but I've just gotten used to dogs being gross sometimes.

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!

Ripley was absolutely ridiculous about this before I neutered him. After he was neutered, it pretty much stopped. He'll still do it on occasion, but doesn't seek out situations constantly that cause him to teeth chatter. Ugh. I can't stand the behaviour and was so glad it disappeared once I neutered him. He was worse than most intact boys I've known.

Dance was a pretty bad teeth chatterer before I spayed her too. Not terribly, at least in comparison to Ripley, but she did it enough to notice. She still does sometimes (she's also a major marker), but it definitely decreased after spaying her.

My spayed female (who also marks like an intact male) does it sometimes, but not to random urine. She does it now and then while cleaning her girly bits, or when she has licked a sore/scrape with blood on it. She also did it in response to licking the salt water compress I was using on her once.

Kind of related - my cat has a strong flehmen response, and it is disgusting because she loves to smell everything. When I change my clothes, she will run over and sniff them, then do the mouth open creeper thing. Ugh! She also likes to sniff Zoe's butthole and do it.
