22 May Decoding your dog (Part 8) Ears (back) and Tail (wagging)
If your dog’s ears are back gently and this is accompanied by a wagging tail then the dog is feeling friendly.
If the dog’s ears are pinned back this is the dog feeling scared.
A dog’s tail wagging is not always a sign of happiness – only that they are interested in the interaction. Only when combined with other body language signs can you be sure if your dog is happy or anxious.
