Understanding your dog by its TAIL position

Post by yenlu on Wed 27 Aug 2008, 10:06 pm

This one quite good :p We always think that wag tail means happy, but wag tail can means so many things!!

Source: http://www.dog-allergy.org/doggy_tails.html

Here are common tail positions and what they mean

Relaxed tail: Relaxation and comfort.

Hanging horizontal but not stiff: A sign of attention. The dog sees something interesting.

Hanging horizontal but stiff: The dog is confronting an intruder or someone or something unknown.

Upright tail: This is a sign of authority of a dog that shows itself dominant.

Upright tail and turned over the back: Shows trust and self-control.

Downward and close to the hind legs: If its extremities are rigid and it wags its tail slightly, it shows "I'm not feeling well". If its legs are slightly bent it's a sign on insecurity.

Tail hidden between its legs: Fear or submission.

Raised tail and slow and rhythmic movement: The dog is on guard.

Wagging lightly: Is their normal welcome.

Wagging with broad circles: "I like you". When two dogs are mock fighting this movement confirms it's a game.

Wagging at a slow speed: When it's being trained it means "I'm trying to understand you, I want to know what you're saying but I don't understand yet". Once it finally understands, the dog wags its tail faster.

Short and slow movements: Shows that it's pleased. Sometimes its only wags its tail a few times when it's on the floor.

Wagging fast: Excitement to a desired activity or object.
