When a dog is scared, it normally drops it's ears, and tucks it's tail between it's legs.

According to the trainpetdog newsletter I received last 2 weeks ago, scared or nervous dogs tend to shake, bark, hide under the table/chair/bed and sometimes pee. When this happens, you need to comfort the dog or have it socialization trained.

Also don't forget the body sighns. Tail between legs, ears low, head down and body tense. It's sometimes a combination or only one. Maybe all of them! Also a growl shows the animal is uncomfy and want u to stop. Remember that it doesn't mean I'll bite u! Well unless u don't stop andmkeep doing what ever u were doing. A growl isn't a threat

Dogs will usually lower their head and pin their ears back and curl their tail between their legs.They will snarl and show their teeth and usually be in a "crouching" position accompanied by barking and sometimes drooling.
