Teeth Chattering While Brushing Neck

I noticed recently that my 14 year old starts teeth chattering when I brush (zoom groom) his neck. Anywhere on his neck. He's started shedding a lot more recently as well. Has anyone heard of this happening and what it might indicate? This is my first greyhound but none of my other sighthounds have exhibited this behavior. He sometimes chatters when he's excited, but his isn't the case with the brushing.

 

Given his advanced age and diagnosis of laryngeal paralysis, I may be over protective.

 

Any info would be appreciated.

My girl chatters when she is really happy, so that's probably what he is telling you!

My Scout chattered when she was really happy. This was before Greytalk existed and stupid me thought it indicated she was cold. She must of thought I was a very silly human who was always interrupting her happy times to put her jacket on her! I've had other greys that chattered a little, but nothing like sweet Scout.

Sounds like you hit a sweet spot! Murphy's been a chatterer since week 1. When I first heard her do it I was super confused and looked around for the woodpecker outside who was surely making that noise. I didn't know that was something greyhounds did. Now I work overtime to see what will trigger her happy chatters. :)

Henry's a total chatterer, scares vets until we explain it, they think he's terrified. Glad you found something else he enjoys :)

Beth, Petey (8 September 2018- ), and Faith (22 March 2019). Godspeed Patrick (28 April 1999 - 5 August 2012), Murphy (23 June 2004 - 27 July 2013), Leo (1 May 2009 - 27 January 2020), and Henry (10 August 2010 - 7 August 2020), you were loved more than you can know.
