Their scientific research shows that when dogs are happy they wag their tail left-to-right, and when they're nervous they wag their tail right-to-left.

A happy dog will wag it's tail further to the right. I've known that for years.

Of course a fellow dog would recognize it's species body language.

Those oily Italians are just now figuring this stuff out? lol

So unless you see how they start wagging, it doesn't really help much.
