[VIDEO] Do Dogs Really Wag Their Tail To The Right If They Are Happy?

Earlier this week I wrote about studies which say that dogs wag their tails to their right side for positive emotions and to the left side for negative emotions.  Not only that, but dogs will use which side another dog’s tail is wagging in order to gauge their mood.

 Eko is just one pup, but I have to admit I was surprised how I was immediately able to notice the differences once I knew what to look for.  Next time your pup wags their tail, take a closer look and let me know how it goes.Have a tail-wagging (to the right, of course) good weekend!

    hhmm – I’m going to have to remember that. I’m not sure which way my tail wags. When I’m happy, it just goes non-stop! Snorts. Love the video as always! XOXO – Bacon

  3. Wow, that’s really cool. It will definitely help the hoomans to know when the doggies are happy or nervous.

    Mom has so many tails to follow. Us GBGV dogs tend to wag in a circle…wonder what that means?

    Until you explained it, I didn’t know what the study had meant by wagging right or left. I thought their tails wagged from side to side, both directions. It was interesting to see your clips and understand that it doesn’t really work that way. I’m going to watch my pups more closely now. Thanks!

  7. I’ve always had a dog and never knew this Will. That’s really interesting. I always learn something new here. Thanks Eko!
