both my goldens do the snarly face alot when playing! it looks scary but i know they are just playing. they know their own body language very well, and understand that its not an aggressive sign because their bodies are relaxed and the biting is very gentle.

i took this picture of my 4 year old & 4 month old playing. lily ( my older girl the one in the picture snarly faced) likes to growl as she plays too, she is pretty vocal during wrestling, totally normal! i think the face is really cute actually!!

Great picture. They are hard to catch looking good. We call it 'stink face'. Can look pretty intimidating if you don't know what it is for sure

Welcome to the golden "smile". This is very typical of the breed and they do it when happy, playing, or excited. I see it more in somewhat submissive dogs but I have also seen it in independent and confident, dogs although less often.
