Does anyone ever hear a jaw click or pop when you dog yawns? My dog Jack sometimes makes
this noise. Is it normal?

I don't know that it's normal, but it's probably his temporomandibular joint. The joint that joins his jaw near his ears. If the jaw isn't aligned properly, it will make a clicking noise.

It may be TMJD which is Temprolmandibular joint disorder. it usually has something to do with the muscles in the dogs jaw. the same thing happens with humans. it can be fixed if it is TMJD by massage. you may want to take your dog to the vet and let them know about the clicking. they may take xrays to find out if the jaw is coming unhinged or if there is extra bone in there. if they cant find anything then it may by TMJD.

i learned about this in school yesterday!!! :lol:

I have never noticed it in my dog, but my jaw used to click. Got my wisdom teeth out and it stopped tho.
