2. Happy Wagging

Happy tail wags are one of the most common types that people see. A happy dog typically carries its tail at about medium height, straight out from its body. The tail carriage is usually fairly relaxed, although an excited, happy dog may wag its tail very quickly. During quieter times, such as when an owner is quietly petting the dog, the tail movements may be slow and quiet instead.
