Does your poodle air snap when he wants to play or gets excited? Galen does it a lot. Typically he brings me a ball and backs off two or three steps. Then he huffs out a big breath to get my attention, snaps his teeth a couple times, and stands expectantly staring at me. If I ignore him he will huff again, snap a few more times, and perhaps poke the ball to make extra sure I get the point. I've had a few other dogs do the occasional air snap, particularly my childhood poodle cross mutt, but none with such persistence and enthusiasm.
