The position and the movement of your dog’s tail tells a lot about the state of mind of your dog.
3 Tail Positions :
1.) high (confident)
2.) neutral ( a relaxed/ happy dog)
3.) low (submission)
Your dog’s tail wagging motion and speed gives insight to your dog’s state of mind.
4 Happy Wagging Motions
1.) large wags at a moderate speed ( happy to see you)
2.) small wags at a moderate speed
3.) small wags at slow speed ( happy/content)
4.) small wags at fast speed ( happy)
The wag you should be concerned about is a slow and small rhythmic movement. Your dog is not sure and is ill at ease. Your dog needs to be redirected immediately before your dog lashes out.
