Astrology does not only play apart in human lives, but also in the lives of our best friend. If you know your pet’s date of birth it might be of interest to find out if your dog’s personality is anything like his sign. Could it be that astrology can help you to train yours pets and understand their needs better, and it could even lead to a better and happier relationship.
Many cultures have traditionally produced astrological charts for their closest animal friends. I know one horse breeder who insists on consulting an astrologer when a new foal arrives. Perhaps an astrological chart is a good investment when you breed race horses.
ARIES (Mar 21 – April 20)
Aries animals are the leaders of their pack and territory. You will often find that top dog which wants to boss all the other dogs in the neighbourhood around was born under the sign of Aries.
Aries dogs are sometimes difficult to train to walk on a leash as they very much have their own idea where they would like to go and out what speed. They can also be very attention seeking, and if you do not give your Aries pet enough attention you might end up with a very disobedient pet. Pets born under this sign expect and love being pampered, and if you have an Aries pet in your family you will know how much they love you for all the pampering. Aries dogs are also very vocal and defend their family with all their energy.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus dogs are well-known to be the least energetic dog in the animal zodiac. They love comfortable surroundings, the best basket and especially your bed. Dogs born under this sign tend to love snacks and put on weight easily as only the best food will do. Some furnishings, perhaps a stepping stool for the sofa so they do not have to over do it, short bursts of activity and smoked salmon for dinner sums up the Taurus dog.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Only share your life with a Gemini animal if you have limitless energy, and like living with a clown. Gemini pets are born entertainers and they love to seek attention. If you enter your Gemini pet in any type of competition they love going home with the trophy, and are probably just as proud as you are. They are sensitive to human moods but their curiosity can get them into trouble if you don’t keep an eye on them. A Gemini pet will be easy to train and they are very likely to get on with your extended pet family plus they love socializing. aries horoscope
CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Cancer dogs are real prima donas, and the centre of attention. If you ignore a pet born under this sign they will become very moody, and go and sit under the bed until they have changed their mood normally after a long sleep and some very special treats. Cancer dogs do not like fighting instead prefer being cuddled and protected by their owners.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo dogs are noble and act superior to other pets and humans. If there are other pets in the household they are always the king pin, and have a rather arrogant air about them. Despite their demeanour many of them are friendly and love to lavish affection on their owners. Humans are often seen as their servants. This is another pet zodiac sign which is easy to train as they tend to have good memories. Sometimes you hear stories about dogs looking after children in an almost human way, this is typical of a pet born under Leo.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Dogs born under the sign of Virgo are very pedantic and demanding. When you are cleaning your home expect your Virgo dog to inspect your handy work and make sure you have not missed a spot. They are especially meticulous about their bedding and you need to pay special attention to a Virgo pet sleeping area. Most dogs born under this sign are aloof until it comes to dinner time when they will let you know it is time to feed them. Virgo dogs love their food, but try to keep them on a strict diet as they have sensitive stomachs and can suffer from allergies.
LIBRA (September 23- October 22)
Libra dogs are not very vocal but express themselves through their eyes. When a Libra dog is part of your life expect to have your patience tested as this is one dog with very high expectations. If they want your attention they are the pets that will sit on your keyboard, knock a plant over or scratch the sofa. Affection is high on their agenda, and they are affectionate with their owners and other animal friends. Sometimes Libra dogs are nervous, and do not like leaving their homes for extended periods. Kennels are just not their sort of thing.
