    Default Bully Wags

    Hi everyone, this was sent to my e mail this morning, and I wanted to share it with you guys, especially since it doesn't really pertain to our bullies since they either don't have tails, or tails that wag, and they aren't usually aggressive. I guess the only thing that pertains to them is the wiggly bums, that only show love.



    Three Signs that a Dogís Wagging Tail Means Trouble
    by VETDEPOT on JANUARY 21, 2014



    Most of the time, tail wagging is a sign of a happy dog, but this isnít always the case. Keep a lookout for these signs that a dogís wag of the tail is actually a warning:


    A slow, low wag: This type of wag can be a sign of insecurity. If a dog is feeling especially fearful, the tail may continue to wag even if itís tucked between the legs. If you think a dog is feeling uneasy for any reason, be very cautious in introducing a new person or animal.


    A slow, high wag: On the opposite end of the spectrum, a slow, high wag is often a display of dominance. Caution should be used if a dog is exhibiting this behavior.
    A wagging tail accompanied by barking: This is often a warning sign of aggression or, at the very least, over-excitement.


    Keep in mind that dogs naturally told their tails at different heights depending on the breed. A broad wag side to side typically indicates a happy pooch, especially if the hips are wiggling with the tail. The best way to tell if a dogís tail wag is negative or positive is to observe his or her overall body language. Happy dogs generally seem relaxed, are holding their tail at its natural height, and arenít showing any signs of anxiety or aggression.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    If a butt is wagging-it's usually a good wag!-- The tail article is right on-as I've had many tails!!! But I don't tell tales!

    Yeap. When the butt moves to the right you scratch it on the right and when it moves to the left you scratch it on the left. So, you scratch right, scratch left and......work it, work it, work it. That is the bully shuffle.

    agreed that is is a really good article but a little funny because hard to tell on a bullie. BUT a good butt wagging i think is always a good sign, i agree with you @Manydogs.
