Hand Signal for Dog?

So I was out riding on a back road yesterday and had a dog run out of the yard into the road to chase after me for a little bit. After the next turn, I came up on a few riders going the other way. I wanted to warn them of the upcoming dog, but all I could come up with in the moment was the hand gesture part of the "Chicken Dance." Is there a common hand signal to warn other riders of a dog?

I'd just signal them to slow down. Flat hand palm down like bouncing a basketball.

The road ahead of the oncoming riders may or may not contain a chicken.

Which part of the chicken dance did you do? The cluck part, the flapping wing part, the waddle part or the clapping part??

You forgot to mention the locking-elbows-with-your-partner-and-dancing-in-circles part!

Or perhaps you assumed it was infeasible to perform while riding a motorcycle...

In all seriousness though: the clucking part

And while they were looking for wild chickens on the loose, they probably hit the dog...

Ya, that would just be too hard on a bike, so I skipped that one.

Although, I would have thought with that motion, that there were gossiping housewives around the corner.

I just use the deer signal for all animals. Serves the same purpose, slow way down and be extra attentive.

When you took the course they were supposed to teach you that signal. You're supposed to swerve directly into them and throw both hands quickly into the air. Within mere feet you are supposed to quickly swerve back to your original course.
That's the international signal for "Dog Ahead".

If you swerve back TOO quickly, that's the international sign for, "I just myself on that last turn".
