Last quote by Nathan Lents

Dogs have inherited this behaviour and they will use it after any kind of infraction that results in being punished. As social animals, they crave harmonious integration in the group and neglect or isolation is painful for them. The head hangs low, panting or smiling stops, eye-contact is avoided, and they literally put their tail between their legs. So which is it - is the wolf (or dog) indicating apology or submission? Well, both. This action is a 'borrowed signal' because it can mean different things in different contexts.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Nathan Lents came from an article called Why guilty dogs really do put their tails between their legs - it is actually 'an apology bow', says New York college: “In a sense, an apology is indeed an expression of submission. Nothing could be more submissive than that. In fact, dominant dogs and wolves rarely issue apologies (just like dominant humans!) and lower-ranking ones must apologize for even the slightest infraction.”.
