Sharing is caring!

Dachshund owners often think that puppies wag their tails only to show that they are happy. However, that is not necessarily true. Dachshunds or other dogs often use their tails to express emotions and it depends on position of the tail so that we can understand our dog’s emotions. It is also important to understand the mood of the dog through the movement of the tail, so that we can understand more about our dog puppies and also know what we can do properly things for our dogs.

When dachshunds feel happy or excited about someone or something, they will wag their tails vigorously and continuously. If you are standing in front of your dogs and they are wagging their tails continuously. It’s sure that they are excited about your appearance and being friendly and want to be closer to you.

Dachshund dogs will feel comfortable when their tails are in a general state. Most dog breeds will do the same.

When the dog’s tail is wagged lower than its general position, it will hand down to the dog’s body if there is something frightening the dog.

When the tail is outstretched, there must be something that intrigues the dog and the dog wants to discover it right away.

There are many studies showing that the dachshunds or other dogs can express their emotions beyond the position of the tail. For example, when they are wagging their tails to the right, they are feeling positive and conversely. When they are waving to the left, they are feeling uncomfortable about something. This is true when the left hemisphere controls the right side of the body, associated with positive behaviors or emotions, and vice versa for the right brain.
