Star signs: They’re not just for people anymore! We already got a kick out of learning what a cat’s star sign reveals about its “purrsonality,” so naturally, we’re thrilled to find out what dog zodiac signs have to say about our precious pups.
As it turns out, a dog’s star sign can tell you just as much about your canine as your star sign can tell you about yourself: It’s a fun, brief glimpse into predictions about personality traits, feelings, and, yes, quirks. Using great dog astrology resources like Dogs Naturally Magazine, Pet Helpful, and Dog Time, we learned about what dog zodiac signs can tell us about our four-legged friends’ “ruff” personality traits, too. After all, as much as we love our canines, we’ll be the first to admit they aren’t perfect. If your furry pal has been getting under your skin lately, hopefully this guide will give you some insight into why — and help you regain some patience.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Adventurous, confident, and strong, an Aries dog is one who loves to play. However, he or she also likes to wander — and that can lead to some seriously sticky situations. You should microchip any dog of any star sign — but especially an Aries pup, just in case he or she wanders too far. It might also be worth doing some extra dog-proofing around some favorite play spots.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus people are famous for being stubborn, so it’s not totally shocking that Taurus dogs can share this trait, too. However, it’s a bit tougher to convince a Taurus canine than a Taurus human to budge when you’d really like them to — especially if he or she is hogging your favorite spot on the couch. Remember to be gentle with this dog when it comes to big transitions such as a move to a different town.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
As sweet and charming as Gemini pups can be, they can also be quite a nervous bunch — especially when they’re far away from their beloved humans. Be sure to give a Gemini doggo lots of affection whenever you are with him or her. It also pays to be patient if the canine takes a long time making a decision — especially when it comes to figuring out what to eat.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Much like Cancer people, Cancer dogs are sensitive, cuddly, and loving. However, with all these big emotions comes a big responsibility; these pups can be much more likely than others to need reassurance. If it’s been a while since you’ve properly snuggled with this dog, tonight is an absolutely perfect time to start. Why would you want to wait any longer?
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Energetic and loud, this doggo loves to be the center of attention. Be sure to spend lots of time with this pup in the great outdoors, and make certain any guests you invite around your canine are just as excited to see him or her as the pup is to see your friends! Otherwise, your dog might get a bit dramatic to regain the spotlight again — often with great success.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Much like Virgo folks, Virgo dogs are incredibly hard workers and love getting into a routine to accomplish any task — big or small — to perfection. It’s definitely a good idea to train this dog early on; otherwise the pup’s tendency to worry might kick into gear — and no dog owner wants a precious pet to feel anxious.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libra pups are super loving, but they might be in need of a little “tough” love from you, if you catch our drift. These dogs sometimes tend to procrastinate on simple things such as eating and may get easily distracted. If nothing else, make it your goal to bring some balance into these doggies lives— they’ll probably thank you for it later!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Intense and strong-willed, this pup is not one that knows how to relax easily — especially if there are other animals or people around competing for your affection. You’d often be hard-pressed to find a dog more loyal than a Scorpio, but be careful not to make them jealous; try to introduce unfamiliar humans or puppers to them slowly.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
If you’ve got a Sagittarius pup, you might have noticed how much this sweet creature loves to explore. But be careful that he or she doesn’t explore in the wrong places — such as near your “chewable” shoes or pillowcases — too often. Otherwise, he or she might pick up on a bad habit that’s hard to break!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
They love to run around for seemingly forever, but they always seem to come back to you. Sound familiar? Though Capricorn pups can be one of the most grounded types of dogs, they can also get some separation anxiety if away from their beloved owners for too long. Be sure to take them in for training if they show any signs of extreme stress.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
An Aquarius dog is known for being an intelligent one with great intuition. However, he or she can also be a bit unpredictable and keep people guessing about what will happen next. With pups like these, it’s good to stay on your toes and be prepared for any surprise they throw your way (hopefully, the next one is good!).
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Docile and sensitive, this caring canine will do anything to avoid conflict or aggression. Though it might be a breath of fresh air to have such a peaceful pup, be sure to watch out for the doggo so he or she doesn’t get bullied by more aggressive dogs. Your Pisces dog will be sure to thank you for it with loads of hugs and kisses!
