Is a wagging tail a sign that a dog is happy?

Not all tail wags are happy ones. You need to take a look at the position of the tail. If it seems stiff and carried high, that is an agitated dog on the verge of protecting its territory. If the dog wags its tail very low and quick, that is a sign of a submissive, fearful dog. However, if the body, mouth and ears seem relaxed and the tail is in a middle position, in most cases you have a happy dog on your hands. The important thing to remember, if the dog does not know you always exercise caution. It is always better to be safe than sorry. It might comeback to bite you!
