Dogs do not talk, but they use their body language activities to convey their needs. We all know a dog's "gotta go to potty "signs. But there are other signs. I am raising dogs for years, so I can read my dog’s body language very easily. However, as a first-time dog parent, you may have difficulties in understanding your dog’s body language. No worry, as today I am going to talk about the meaning of dog’s most common body language in this article.

Dog’s Tail Wagging And What Does They Mean

Dogs communicate with their tails. If a dog is wagging its tail slowly it means he is greeting someone new. Your dog will always wag its tail frequently when he sees you after a long time.

If your dog’s tail is straight that means he is curiously looking at something new.

If your dog is looking at a single point and wagging its tail slowly from side to side, take a look at the place where he is looking. You may spot an insect or a snake, which is scaring your dog.

Dog wagging its tail in high speed means he is about to take a step.

If dog’s tail is pointed on floor’s direction that means something scared the dog.
