What is your dog thinking about?
One way to find out is to observe the wagging of her tail. Is it moving up or down? Fast or slow? A joint study from the University of Trieste and University Bari in Italy published some curious observations of “dog tail language” according to the researchers, when dogs were approached by their owners they wagged their tails vigorously bias to their right side. Moderate to slow wags toward the right signified unfamiliar animals or people who appeared nonthreatening. Wagging with a bias to the left occurred when a threatening dog approached. Have you noticed which way your dog’s tail has been wagging?
