Does Your Dog Clack

Just wondering if any of you have a clacker? When I say clacking , I mean a sound that seems to be tongue orientated rather than teeth.
When Molly and I play Find The Treat, she will run around making this "clacking " sound. I have researched and have not been able to find an exact answer. The sound is (from what I can observe) coming from her tongue on the roof of her mouth. I guess she is doing it to help her locate the hidden food but I have come up empty with googling it. Anyone have a clacker?

Interesting Molly sounds so cute ^_^

Snowy makes the weirdest noises when he tries to tell me something. I don't think it is called Clacking or whining or barking lol more of singing quietly. I really don't know but I am sure it is not clacking noise.

I wonder if he is using the radar technique that dolphins and some blind people are using to locate objects? Did you see the clip where that blind boy was able to identify objects by clicking his tongue?

Here's a youtube about the boy who locates objects by clicking his tongue. It may not have anything to do with what Mollie is doing, but it's interesting.

I don't know if it's the same sound you are describing but Evye makes this "KKKKK" sound, usually when we're playing and the tongue is hanging out. I don't know if it's really a clacking noise but I'm convinced it definitely has to do with the tongue. I wondered the same thing.
