It's Why Do Dogs Wednesday! Why do dogs have a bump in the roof of their mouth? Apparently, little bump communicates with the dog's vomeronasal organ which is responsible for detecting pheromones. Dogs may therefore, sniff a spot, then flick their tongue against this little bump or chatter their teeth so to better analyze the smell.
