Do you have a pet dog, or have seen one in the park?

You might have noticed that dogs often move their tails. This tail-wagging is a way for dogs to speak to us and other dogs!

Happy Wag: When a dog is happy or excited, its tail wags quickly from side to side. Maybe you’ve come home from school, and your pet dog is so glad to see you!

Curious Wag: If a dog is curious about something, its tail might wag slowly from side to side.

Still Tail: When a dog’s tail is still and not moving, it might mean it focuses on something. For example, when they see a cat or hear a distant sound.

Tucked Tail: If a dog is scared or nervous, they might tuck their tail between their legs. It’s like when we hide behind our parents if we meet a stranger.

So, the next time you see a dog, watch its tail! It can tell you a lot about how the dog is feeling. Remember, always ask an adult before approaching a dog you don’t know.

Dogs are lovely, and their tails are like little storytellers! Keep watching and learning!
