When dogs feel happy they automatically wagging their tail, we all know that — like that, learning to understand dog tail positions and what they mean is another excellent method for the communication of dog. But sometimes we need to pay attention to their entire body, eyes, lips and body movements.
The tail direction also tells us about the positive or negative idea that a dog feels on a person or any item. If the dog wags their tail more to the right, it means the dog has a positive expression about the person or an object. If the dog wags their tail more left (opposite), it means the dog has a negative feeling about the person or an item.
