Urination: Obviously, not all urination; but, urination where it doesn’t normally occur: Such as the carpet, the stove top or Haiti.
Vocalization: As in rapid and/or high-pitch barks or yelps. If the dog vocalizes, “I’m chill, bruh”, it’s probably not panicking and is more likely a surfer.
Trembling: Uncontrollable shaking is a sign of CPD. Some drugs might alleviate this symptom but, first use the dog to mix any paint that might need a good shaking. Then, you can say, “Who mixed my Laguna Sunrise Enamel? WHO mixed my Laguna Sunrise Enamel? YOU did. Good boy!”
Unfocused Motor Activity: If your dog has CPD, if might wander about doing things at random… as opposed to a healthy dog, which wanders about doing things at random.
Escape Behavior: A panicking dog might exhibit “escape behavior” such as freeing itself from handcuffs while tied up in a sack that is in a locked chest underwater.
Salivation: Excessive drooling is almost a sure sign of Canine Panic Disorder or bacon.
Freezing Up: If your dog stops moving, it might be exhibiting panic behavior; or, it could simply be a picture of a dog. Check for an artist’s signature in the dog’s bottom right corner…
Destruction: Often, during a panic, a dog will tear up its owner’s possessions; fortunately, there are tranquilizers available that will keep you from caring whatever the hell your dog is doing…
Defecation: Pooping in the house, could be another sign of CPD; or, your dog could just be “trying something new”.
Pacing: This is tricky. Pacing can be a sign of panic in a dog or the dog might simply believe herself to be Groucho Marx. You can test for this by asking the dog if she’s shot an elephant in her pajamas…
