This could be play, anxiety, boredom, aggression, or even neurological like a seizure or a gastrointestinal issue. Please note the details and discuss with your vet. http://www.vetstreet.com/our-pet-expe... http://www.petmd.com/blogs/thedailyve...

Not to scare you, but at times dogs snap at the air because they can be showing symptoms of a partial seizure. A partial seizure is caused by abnormal electrical activity within a relatively small portion of the brain. This occurred in my pup right before he passed away :( This isn't always the case, but it's definitely something to consider.
