Is having your nose on the daily horoscopes in newspapers the first thing you do when you wake up? Do you often ask people’s birthdays before even asking their names? Are you hooked on that new astrology app?
Even if there is no science to back it up, today people seem to read, live and even breathe astrology. Whether it’s for the need to comfort or to deal with the uncertainty about the future, you know your own zodiac sign and believe that it reveals a lot about your personality and trait. So, why not believe that the sign under which your dog was born can provide meaningful insights into what makes your pooch tick, what he loves the most and everything else that can help you better care for him.
Your Dog’s Zodiac Sign
Aries (March 21-April 20)
Ruled by the planet Mars, Aries is the baby of the zodiac and is represented by the symbol Ram. As an astrological fire sign, Aries is driven by passion and boldness.
An Aries dog will be very active and enthusiastic. They love running around other dogs and are always in the mood to play. They have funny mannerisms, are courageous and always seem to be very cheerful. They’ve got a thing for hanging their heads out of a car window to feel the wind.
But, despite their playful and loving character, they have a selfish side and a mind of their own.
They might not come when you are calling them. They might quit in the middle of a game. And, they might often find themselves getting into accidents.

Taurus (April 21–May 20)
As an earth sign, Taurus is ruled by Venus and represented by the bull.
You can sum up Taurus dogs in one word: very headstrong. If they want a cake, they are going to have it and eat it. When they want something, that’s how it’s going to be with them: They have a lot of willpower, are very stubborn and don’t understand the meaning of “no.”
However, no matter how tough they might look on the outside, they are actually very shy, sweet and loving on the inside. They yearn for affection, love to be warmed by the sun, appreciate nature and look for a peaceful environment.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)
The air sign that rules communication.
Mercury is the planet of intelligence and so a Gemini dog is a fast learner with a reliable and quick wit. They are very smart, curious and looking around, gathering information and meeting new people are important to them. They love to talk –oops, I meant bark – and can be very attentive when you are speaking.
On the other side of the coin, don’t be surprised if they become anxious, start biting their nails or constantly licking their paws. And, when it comes to food, well, they can be kind of lazy.

Cancer (21 June – July 20)
The water sign that’s ruled by the moon and represented by the crab is said to be driven by emotion rather than logic, making them the most sensitive, compassionate and emotional of all.
Born nurturers, it is believed that Cancer dogs love their owners more than themselves and would always provide their support and comfort to a sick family member. They are known to be very affectionate and patient with kids. And, their deep devotion is directed to their human parents.
They are huge fans of sweets but not of exercise, meaning that they prefer short walks to long hikes.
