Dog "Panic Attack" or loud "Coughing"

Hello everyone, puppy lovers

After reading some of the answers to this question on what to do when your dog starts coughing loud, or appears having a "Panic" attack.

What "I" do, that helpf VERY well, is I put my hand upon their throat area and gently rub it up and down the neck. My dog is a standard Dacshund " wiener doggie, she does this sometimes when she gets really excited or at night too, but once I start rubbing her throat, she stops. Along with while I'm rubbing her neck, I tell her it's OK, its ok. This has been and works great for me.
