Scientists decipher the meaning of a dog's tail wagging for the first time


2022-08-08: [Chinese Article Link]  The tail of a dog is the deepest memory of every shoveler, and it is like a swinging flag that always welcomes the return of the master. So every time a dog shakes his tail, we always find it a sign of happiness. In fact, the tail of a dog is a social tool that can convey many messages. In addition to being happy, happy, it can express many emotions of anger, fear, obedience. Now let's read the dog's tail language together. Interpretation of "tail language" I. Tail level and substantial swings I mean, I'm very happy. This is particularly common when dogs meet their owners or when they meet old friends who have been together for a long time. It is usually accompanied by handy moves on the hips of dogs, licking people, etc., and is a particularly happy expression of dogs. II. Tail up and softly shake Meaning: Friendly This is a friendly and well-meaning dog, but to a lesser extent than the first. If this action is aimed at the same people, it means they're playing games and having fun. III. Swinging the tail slowly Meaning: Relax. Dogs are relaxed and their tails are no exception when they are in a good mood, and they prefer to express their feelings and ease in the form of slowly shaking their tails, while conveying their affections to each other. Don't think that dogs are demanding too much, and sometimes just a touch or a whisper is the best reward and reward for them. Four, tail up. A little shake. Meaning: Provocative, exploratory In the face of an “enemy” or an opponent who disturbs it, the winning dog sometimes takes the initiative to provoke the other: first, lift the tail up and then shake a little bit. Such provocations are not reckless, and dogs want each other to see more of them, and thus to fall apart. In addition, the dog acted in order to test the power of the other party to decide whether to attack or escape. When it comes to dogs, it is important to be strong enough to show the authority of the master. If it happens between two dogs, it is better to avoid “combats” and to isolate them. V. Tail lifts high and shakes fast Signal: Prepare to fight. Dogs do not always shake their tails in a friendly way and are prepared to fight when they lift their tail up high and shake quickly, while placing the main body fractions on their front legs. This was confused by many, who thought that shaking the tail was a sign of happiness, and that shaking the tail was very dangerous. It would be preferable at this time not to attempt to approach or contact them, so that the dogs may think that the struggle has begun and proceed with the attack. VI. STAYING IN THE TWENTY Meaning: I don't know what to do. If the dog raises its tail and does not shake, it does not have any problems, but rather indicates that it was caught up in the immediate event of an emergency and had to observe it in silence. Don't let the dog get confused for too long. Sometimes a simple point can keep it open and turn its attention to something else. VII. CUTTING THE TWENTY Meaning: weak, submissive When dogs are afraid, they tie their tails between their legs in order to show weakness or obedience to each other. This behaviour is due to the distribution of anal glands at the tail root of the dog and below the anus, which contains a great deal of information in the anus fluid, which is like a dog's business card and contains a lot of information about dogs. You don't know that it could hurt dogs! Tight tailings can effectively block the release of information in the anal gland and prevent “secrets” from being leaked, leading to unnecessary attention and strife. If this happens to a dog, it is better to take it away from “the place of right and wrong” so as not to be subjected to “consortium”. In the case of a strange dog, be careful not to give it any incentive, such as to drink loudly or turn around, but to remain calm and withdraw slowly, so that the dog knows that he or she is not a threat to it. It is important to note that if the dog has been caught up in the tail for a long period of time and the owner is not allowed to touch it or shows pain after being touched, it may be caused by illness or injury, and should be taken to a medical examination in a timely manner. More information One, about the tail falling off. When the dog's tail blows, it usually means it's confident at the moment. But there are some differences in the details, depending on the circumstances. If the dog's tail is in a position between parallel and vertical, it indicates a stronger disposition; (b) If the unwinding tail appears to be more rigid, indicating that the dog is now willing to challenge anyone or the like; If the upswing is softer, it indicates that the dog is very confident at the moment, but does not commit any excesses; If the tail goes up a little bit, it shows that the dog is not only self-confident but also full of control, it is looking forward to the praise of others to satisfy its own small vanity. For the first and second types of dogs, do not disturb them as much as possible, when giving orders and normal communication may give rise to dog dissatisfaction and resistance. What would be more exciting for a third and fourth dog to take advantage of a few simple training courses that, after a successful conclusion, would give him any credit and encouragement to fully satisfy his self-esteem? II. Shake to the left and shake to the right represent different emotions Scientists have done an experiment by recruiting 30 mixed family pets and placing them in a cage equipped with cameras with precise tail-tracking angles. And they see four irritants in front of the cage: their owner, a stranger, a cat, and an unknown dog of superiority. When dogs see their owners, their tails are all shaking to the right side of the body; And an unknown man sways their tails to the right with a moderate measure; Look at the cat, the dog's tail swings to the right again, but at a slower pace and with limited movement; However, the sight of an aggressive, strange dog led to their tail swinging on the left side of the body. So scientists have come to the conclusion that positive emotions, such as confidence, motivation, curiosity, and negative feelings, such as fear and escape, are expressed to the left. III. Is a dog without a tail at a disadvantage? Not necessarily, but shorter or non-existent tails make it more difficult for other dogs to interpret signals. When they are in an unfamiliar social field, this may put short tail dogs at a slight disadvantage. But dogs can use a variety of means of communication and can find other ways to convey their messages.
