Waging tail


New Member
My pomerian dog use to wage his tail whenever he is watching the television or eating food. I have stopped him several times from doing this because this behavior of him irritates me a lot. Can you give some suggestions?

When he wags his tail does it hit you or knock stuff over? I guess I just don't understand why that behavior irritates you or why you want to train your pom to stop.

A dog wagging his tail means he is happy. No need to get rid of such a pure and positive behavior.

You could put it on command like homer has mentioned. People will believe that your dog is understanding your words if you do! :dogsmile:

To put it on command, you can simply say "Wag!" followed with a click & treat, while he is wagging his tail. :dogbiggrin:
