How on earth could a wagging tail be a problem? Have you ever been around a large, muscular, happy dog who upends flower vases and knocks over beverages on coffee tables with his long vigorously wagging tail?

Ever been repeatedly slapped across the thighs by one of these wagging whips, and the more you react to the pain the more the dog wags? Ouch!
