Why is a dog’s tail a language message?

Whether a dog wags its tail or pinches it, it is a kind of “dog language”. Although different types of dogs have different shapes and sizes of tails, the movements of their tails express similar meanings.

Generally, when the dog is excited or sees the owner happy, it will wag its head and tail, and its tail will not only swing left and right, but also continuously rotate; if it is cocked up. To express joy – it may think that something good is about to belong to it; to droop the tail means danger – it may think. God, disaster may be coming; the tail does not move. To show uneasiness – it is thinking about what to do in front of it. It is good to pick up the tail. I’m afraid that you can’t shake your tail quickly and horizontally, which symbolizes friendship. I mean, play with me, play with me. The movement of the dog’s tail is also related to the tone of its owner. If the owner said “bad guy” to him in a friendly voice, he would also wag his tail to show his pleasure; on the contrary, if the owner said “good dog! Good dog!” in a stern voice, he would still pick up his tail to show his unhappiness.

For dogs, people’s voice is only a sound source, a sound signal, not a language.

A human smile and a dog wagging its tail are similar forms of communication. Dogs only wag their tails at living objects. The dog who lies there alone will not wag his tail even though he has the inanimate creature he likes in front of him. A dog may like to eat some kind of food, but it will not wag its tail against the food unless other creatures are present.

It can be seen that a dog’s tail can transmit a lot of information. Even if a dog wags its tail equally to creatures or inanimates, it still can’t change the fact that dogs like intimate contact, which is the main reason why they wag their tail when they see us. No one will misunderstand what they mean.
