If you’re a Taurus, you might be reliable. Capricorn? You’re pretty ambitious. But have you ever wondered where your dog gets their personality from? It turns out that just like humans, dogs have their own zodiacs, according to when they were born. We’ve collected the best of the doggy horoscopes from Lifestyle AU, Dogs Naturally and Astrology Weekly to give you an insight into your pup’s personality.
ARIES (March 21 – April 21): Pack Leader
Bold, spontaneous and demanding, Aries dogs have a “leap-first, look-later” approach to life. Although they’re smart and playful, they don’t take no for an answer. Aries dogs are pretty accident-prone – you may wind up at the vet more often than you’d like. If an Aries pooch doesn’t come when called, don’t be offended: they’re just busy doing their own thing.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 20): Strong & Silent
If you’ve landed yourself a Taurus dog, be prepared to spend big on food. Dogs with this sign prefer the finer things in life and turn their snout up at cheap kibble. Keep these dogs occupied – without regular activity, they become lazy and stubborn. Being shy, a Taurus needs affection and love, and in return will give you unfaltering loyalty.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20): The Yapper
With this twin Zodiac, be ready for a split puppy personality: they can be excited, bored, versatile and fussy all at once. Everything is always new, and Geminis aren’t afraid to bark their excitement. Gemini dogs keep their puppy traits throughout life, so if you’re after a dog that will keep surprising you, this zodiac is for you.
CANCER (June 21 – July 20): Home is where the Heart is
The Cancer sign is linked to the moon, which relates to emotion, mood changes and sensitivity. Dogs born under this sign are sweet natured and love to love you, but they need constant reassurance and security. Cancer dogs can binge eat when they’re feeling moody and gain weight quickly, so it’s important to control their meals.
LEO (July 21 – August 20): Boss Bitch
Dogs with a Leo sign are extremely self-confident and like to show off. No matter where you are, a Leo dog needs to be the centre of attention and feel adored. Don’t be surprised if they have a difficult time adjusting to another canine in the household. As long as you allow for special one-on-one time, your Leo will be loyal and loving.
VIRGO (August 21 – September 20): Lend a Helping Paw
Being super shy, a Virgo dog will make themself scarce if you have unfamiliar visitors over. But when it’s just the family, they’re sweet canines that love to please, fetching slippers or newspapers. Being the hypochondriac of the dog world, Virgos need to be clean and have a routine to prevent them from acting up.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 20): Partner in Crime
Structure is a must for the Libra dog, who tends to eat only when they want to. Dogs born under this sign also thrive on partnership, so if it’s just the two of you, this pup will be obedient, eager to please and stick to you like glue. Well-balanced and amiable, a Libra dog is rarely overly sensitive and makes a great companion.
SCORPIO (October 21 – November 20): Strong Character
Like its Libra cousin, the Scorpio craves structure. They can be highly emotional and very influential over both other dogs and humans alike. Scorpios are intuitive, strong-willed and enjoy being made a fuss over. They even have jealous tendencies. Exercise consistency and affection and your Scorpio canine will thrive.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21 – December 20): Freedom Fighter
Tying up your Sagittarius pooch in the yard is not the way to create a happy animal. Dogs with this personality need to have a sense of independence to nurture self-confidence. When properly cared for, Sagittarian dogs are happy, kind and outgoing creatures, and love having another pet in the house.
CAPRICORN (December 21 – January 20): Hard Worker
When given a trick or a task, the Capricorn canine will put in the hard yards to earn its reward. They tend not to sleep as much as other dogs, and therefore can suffer from anxiety and need human comfort. Trust is a big factor in Capricorns; so don’t be offended if it takes a while for them to warm up to you, particularly if you’re adopting an older pet.
AQUARIUS (January 21 – February 20): Anything Goes
If you have an Aquarius dog, you may notice they go from 0 to 100 pretty quickly. Despite being unpredictable, they are one of the most intelligent of the signs, and are extremely loving towards others. Don’t overdo the discipline with these dogs; they tend to rebel when pushed too far. Stay firm but loving and you’ll have a loyal companion for life.
PISCES (February 21 – March 20): The Softie
Dogs born under the Pisces sign are inherently sweet natured and extremely in tune with their humans: your Pisces dog may even echo your mood. These pooches provide unconditional devotion, but their non-aggressive nature opens them up to being bullied by other dogs. Give them a peaceful environment with plenty of independence and they will flourish.
