Ever wonder what your dog's tail wags mean? Turns out, a wag isn't just a wag! Learn to "read" your dog's tail to understand their emotions and strengthen your bond.

The Happy Wiggle: A high, fast wag typically means your pup is feeling happy and excited. It could be playtime, a walk in the park, or simply seeing their favorite person (you!).

The Worried Wag: A low wag with tucked ears might signal fear or anxiety. Pay attention to your dog's body language and the situation to understand the source of their worry.

The Dominant Wag: A stiff, high tail wag can indicate dominance or aggression. Observe your dog's overall demeanor to determine their intent.

Tail Talk Tidbits:  Did you know puppies don't wag their tails until they're around 7-8 weeks old? Their tail wags become more defined as they mature and learn to communicate their emotions.

Tail Docking and Communication:  Tail docking, a controversial practice, can hinder a dog's ability to communicate fully.  A docked tail might wag, but the nuance of the wag can be lost.

Become a Tail Talk Master: By understanding your dog's unique tail wags, you can build a stronger connection and respond appropriately to their emotions.
