My beagle Candy greats me in the morning, with a wagging tail. We know that dogs can read our body language. Our pets will tilt their ears back a certain way when we talk to them.
Our dogs wag their tails at the sound of our voice. We tend think
of it as a happy greeting. New research shows that when our hounds wag their tails to the right, its a sign of companionship, and also relaxation.
NBCNews Further Reports on this Study:
“In other words, a dog looking to a dog wagging with a bias to the right side — and thus showing left-hemisphere activation as if it was experiencing some sort of positive/approach response — would also produce relaxed responses,” Vallortigara said in a statement.
We know that our dogs can hear the sound of our car, coming down the street before we even open the front door. They are smarter, than we ever thought. They can find things, under couches, and know when we just need some comfort from a rough day at work. They can also tell us about other dogs, and people. Our pets can pick up on body language, and detect diseases with their extraordinary sense of smell. They truly are man’s best friend.
The best thing about our four legged companions, is they are always happy to see us. A wagging tail to the right, a beautiful howl, and a favorite toy, means all is right with the world. Does your beagle bring their favorite toy, when its time to play? My beagle does, and she does it with a wagging tail. At least now I have a better idea of what her tail wagging to the right or left means.
