3 Seven human years equal one dog year

4 Sick dogs eat grass.

 Some dogs waving tails show enthusiasm, not friendliness. Scared or worried dogs wag their tails. Context and body language convey dog moods.

5 Friendly dogs always wag

6 Dogs age cognitively and physically

 Old pack hierarchy and dominance mindset caused this mistake. Dogs prefer secure environments to dominant owners. Dog dominance loses to moderate positive reinforcement.
