Understanding a dog’s body language is essential for building a strong and trustworthy relationship with your four-legged friend. This is really important because dogs are a source of limitless positivity. Do you know what your pet is trying to tell you in different situations? Here are 14 useful clues for you to understand your dog better.
The Dog’s Tail
- The dog wags his lowered tail. If the dog wags his tail slowly, this means he doesn’t understand what’s going on. The dog is asking you what you want him to do. So, help him navigate the situation when the dog’s tail is wagging rapidly, this means he admits that you are in charge.
- The tail is raised and tremors slightly. This means your dog is issuing a challenge to your authority because he considers himself to be in charge of the situation. In this case, your dog sees himself brave and strong. He is in a good mood and trying to say I’m proud of myself. I’m feeling great.
- The tail is tucked between the legs. The tucked tail is a sign that the dog is scared, afraid of pain, or feels uncomfortable. Most often the dog tucks his tail between his legs when he is really afraid of something or someone. However, if there are no obvious reasons for concern and your pet tucks his tail quite often, you should take him to a vet.
