Put yourselves on a construction site where there’s no collaboration and you have chaos. Earlier in the day I ventured out to a hardware store and three employees were standing around laughing and talking about non-work items and as I patiently waited, finally one of them asked what I needed.

Dogs Communicate with Wag of a Tail
While this right versus left wagging behavior means something to other dogs, the researchers say that theyre probably not purposely displaying this behavior to communicate with each other. Instead they say its just an automatic response due to left side or right side brain activation. But the team also points out that this behavior could serve a very helpful purpose to people like dog owners and veterinarians as another way to better understand whats going on with the animal. Compilation of videos shown to test dogs left, right, no tail wagging (Current Biology, Siniscalchi et al.) To make their findings the researchers showed their dog subjects videos of other dogs either wagging their tails to the left or right. When the test dogs saw a video of a dog wagging its tail to the left, their heart rates increased and they appeared a bit nervous. However, when the dogs saw another animal wagging its tail to the right, they remained calm.
