When a dog wags its tail, it is happy. But that’s not always true. The expert on the behavior of dogs Katja Krauss explains in her book “Learning to see the emotions of dogs” that the animal does express emotions with the tail, but it does not always mean that it is happy. Rather, it implies that he is excited.
The height at which the tail is carried and the speed with which it moves allow more information about how the dog is feeling. Because you may even be afraid or aggressively predisposed.
As a general rule of thumb: The slower and smoother you move the tail, the lower the tension. With high excitation, you will move it fast and with short oscillations. If the dog has its tail raised without any movement, it is also very tense. In general this is how it is shown in a direct confrontation.
A generally happy dog wags his tail quite high and with a lot of movement, sometimes even in a circle. But very low tails with fast movement can also occur. Therefore, the following applies: To correctly interpret the stress and emotional situation of the animal, owners must consider the character, general anatomy and other body language of their pet.
