What Does Your Dog’s Zodiac Sign Say About Them?

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aires Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Aries dog is an independent spirit who loves to explore. They’re confident and always up for a good time, no matter what it is. This dog is full of energy and loves to play.

They make great hiking or running partners and are always down for a game of fetch. The Aries-born puppy is not the obedient and easy-to-train type. However, if they decide to obey, they will only do so out of love for their person.

Aries dogs are also independent, whimsical, and love change. So if you throw them a ball, don’t be surprised if they ignore it in favor of a fallen leaf or something else that catches their eye!

According to dog astrology, Aries dogs have hunting spirits, making them good candidates for hunters (if that’s what you’re looking for).

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taurus Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Taurus dog is a loyal and affectionate companion. They’re patient, sweet, and love nothing more than cuddling up with their favorite person. They love the comfort and all that life has to offer.

A Taurus-born pooch will be very grateful for the meat on their menu and the fluffy pillow they rest on.

Furthermore, they’re fond of nature walks—but they should be taken at a leisurely pace, over reasonable distances, and followed by extended naps in the sun.

Cheerful, faithful, sociable and sometimes jealous, the Taurus dogs have highly developed protective instincts: they are the perfect mother/father for their own puppies and human babies.

The Taurus dog is a faithful friend who will stick by your side through thick and thin. And if you’re ever feeling down, they’ll always be there to give you a big wet kiss.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Gemini dog is an intelligent and quick-witted companion. They love to play and are always up for a good game of catch. They’re also very curious and love to explore their surroundings.

Gemini dogs love holidays, so don’t even think about leaving them at home when you go on vacation!

They are not easy to train because they quickly forget commands and are easily distracted by everything.

Gemini dogs are known for being playful, happy-go-lucky, and friendly. But they can also have a mischievous side. So if you leave your Gemini dog home alone, don’t be surprised if you come back to find your shoes chewed up or your trash rummaged through.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancer Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

Cancer dogs are some of the most loyal and sensitive pets you could ask for. They make excellent watchdogs because they’re always alert and quick to bark at anything that seems out of the ordinary.

What’s more, Cancer puppies are perfect therapy dogs. They have an intuitive nature that allows them to sense when their owner is feeling down and need a little comfort. They love to please their owners and are easy to train.

However, Cancer dogs are also clingy and overprotective. They will follow you everywhere, around the house, outside, and even in your little moment of relaxation—in the bathroom.

And let’s not forget the moods. Cancer dogs like to be held and kissed, but not too tightly and not on the nose. They want to play, but not always and not anyway. Sometimes, when they see no one to talk to, the Cancer dog retreats to the bathroom to relax in the tub.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leo Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Leo dog is a proud and regal pet as well as a natural born leader. They love attention and will demand it at every opportunity.

They love to wake you up in the middle of the night to feed and entertain them, and they also love to sleep in the center of your attention—sometimes on your laptop, sometimes on your face.

Leo dogs have a lot of energy, so they need plenty of exercises.

They’re also very stubborn, so training them can be a challenge. But if you’re up for it, Leo dogs can be loyal and loving companions.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgo Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

Virgo dogs are the neat freaks of the canine world!

They love to be clean and well-groomed at all times. They’ll often be seen licking their paws or dipping in the water bowl.

Virgo dogs are also brilliant and easy to train. They make excellent obedience and agility dogs.

However, the Virgo can also be a worrier. Virgo dogs are always looking for danger and will often bark at anything that seems out of the ordinary.

What’s more, Virgo dogs are perfectionists. They know precisely when it’s time for a walk and mealtime, and they’ll often become agitated if their routine is disrupted.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Libra Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Libra dog is a social butterfly. They love nothing more than being surrounded by people and other dogs. They’re always the first to start a game of fetch and never tire of playing.

Libra dogs also have a strong sense of justice. They hate to see anyone treated unfairly and will often intervene—with barks and more—if they think someone is being mistreated.

However, Libra dogs can also be indecisive. They’ll often vacillate between two different activities or toys, unable to decide which one to focus on.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

Scorpio dogs are the detectives of the canine world. They’re always sniffing around, looking for clues, and investigating anything that interests them—that’s why many police dogs are Scorpions.

Scorpio dogs also have a strong sense of intuition. They seem to know when something is wrong and will often comfort their owners when feeling down.

Scorpio dogs are also fiercely loyal and will do anything to protect their family.

But they can also be jealous and possessive. They don’t like sharing their toys or owners’ attention with other dogs.

The Scorpio dog handles any situation with firm paws. They eat when they feel like it, even if you haven’t filled their bowl with treats. The bacon in your sandwich is just as good. Of course, they’re also a skilled hunter, and the proof is in the shoes and furniture they’ve grazed.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

The Sagittarius dog is an eternal optimist. They’re always wagging their tail and looking for the next adventure.

They don’t understand the notion of an obstacle, so they’ll knock down anything that stands in the way of their success: the vase of imperial lilies, the coffee mug, and even the TV.

Sagittarius dogs are always up for a game, whether it’s fetch or tug-of-war. They’re also known to be escape artists. It might occur to them to test the law of gravity and jump out the window even if they are in a 4th-floor apartment. So, if you have a Sagittarius dog, keep a close eye on them. They’re also very friendly and love to meet new people and other dogs.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

Capricorn dogs are determined to do only what they want! They’re independent and headstrong.

They like to be in charge and will often try to take the lead on walks—even if they don’t know where they’re going. They’ll plant firmly at your feet when they tire of walking.

The Capricorn dog has a fantastic memory, especially regarding food and treats. A single crumb left on the floor will send them into full-blown cleaning mode until every last trace is gone.

They’re also known to be hoarders and often try to stash their favorite toys or bones in hidden places.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquarius Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

You know what is said about humans in Aquarius: they are either geniuses or madmen. So are these dogs.

Aquarius dogs are the ones that will learn every single trick you teach them and will be able to do them all perfectly.

On the other hand, they will also be the ones that will chase their own tails for hours or bark at literally nothing.

They’re unpredictable, mischievous, and eager for attention, but don’t call them crazy when you see them running around the house with a bag over their head. They’re just expressing their unique personality!

Moreover, they are the friendliest of all dogs and will get along with everyone, from other dogs to cats to humans—but not squirrels!

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces Dog -- Zodiac sign of your dog

Pisces dogs are total pacifists. They wag their tails and kiss everyone—even strangers!

They are gentle, sensitive souls who love nothing more than cuddling and being close to their people. The Pisces dog sleeps in one day just as others sleep in three. They only stir when they hear the magical sound of an open can or the refrigerator door opening.

If they catch you sitting on the couch, they’ll climb into your lap, and you can say goodbye to any other activities you plan to undertake. This dog was made for cuddling and petting.

And because they are such good listeners, many Pisces dogs become therapy dogs. They have a calming effect on people and help them feel better.
