    DefaultWagging tails

    Bailey is a full lab but I don't know from what caliber stock since she's from a BYB.
    Barney is adopted but he's a full lab. I don't know what stock he came from either.

    His tail only goes high when he's after something or on alert. The rest of the time it pretty much stays mid way ?? and wags and wags. He's a happy boy. ;D of course it goes down when he thinks he's in trouble or he doesn't feel well.

    Bailey's tail stays up unless she's scared or doesn't feel well. I mean high and wagging. She's a happy girl ;D

    Is that a good breed thing or just an individual dog??

    What about the tails in your house?

    Dont know about the good or bad, but Bogeys alomst never stops. And it rarely is down,sometimes but not often. It goes soo fast sometimes I think its going to wag off!

    I hope Bob Pr. will see this, he posted a really interesting article a while back on wagging tails, and what the different positions meant.

    I find Baloo must wag and prance at the same time. There is no wagging without prancing.

    Thunder does the prancing and wagging too! His tail is always up and wagging or half up and wagging. Simba on the other hand, she's a happy girl, but doesn't wag too often. Laura would like her tail, stays down where it should.

    It's not the destination, it's the journey!

    Remy's tail is always up and wagging and knocking everything of the coffee table :. If his tail isn't wagging he is either into something he knows he shouldn't be or sleeping.

    The way tail wagging is done has nothing to do with if a dog came from good breeding stock or not.

    Well, I only asked it that way because Laura is always talking about Jake's tail not staying down.
    Bailey's tail is always up and curled. Barney's stays pretty much even with his body. I didn't know if
    that was a trait that was bred in or just the individual dog.

    I've read the tail positions article before and it was very interesting.

    Magnum's tail is usually always up and curled over her back (she has 1/4 golden retriever in her).

    Ruger's tail is usually down but up when he's excited (it sticks straight up)

    Remington's tail is carried more at topline level and when he's excited it does not go straight up like Ruger's but pretty much stays at top-line level.

    They all wag
