Why does your dog behave the way they do - is it written in the stars? Our pups certainly have unique personalities, each with their own quirks. To what extent are these qualities influenced by the day they were born?
If your dog is a rescue, don't fret! This is all in fun, so even if you're unsure of your dog's exact birth time, we recommend using their "gotcha day" to estimate. Alternatively, you can read each sign's description to figure out the best fit for your companion.
Let's explore the canine constellations, shall we?
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
An up-and-at-em kind of vibe - if your pup's a Capricorn, you may have your hands full! Always ready for their next adventure, Capricorn dogs are ahead of the pack, pulling you along on every walk or hike.
They are quintessential working dogs and love their people just as hard. In their downtime, you can find them herding the family or your other pets, never letting anyone fall out of line. For the Cap pup, happiness is a fresh tennis ball and an empty field for fetch.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Wickedly smart and endlessly curious, the Aquarius dog has a mind all their own. They may be willful and stubborn at times but are fiercely loyal to those they love. You might even catch them watching the latest nature doc on Netflix when you leave the room.
One thing's for sure - an Aquarius pup will keep you on your toes. Pamper them with praise and take time to teach them new tricks so they can show you just how smart they are!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Is there anything sweeter than a Pisces pup? You may want yours to branch out, but let's face it, they're the dogs at daycare waiting patiently for their owner's return.
All the kisses in the world won't be enough for these gentle souls. Spoil your Pisces with a comfy spot on the couch and lots of treats, and they'll be devoted to you for a lifetime.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
One of the feistiest signs of the zodiac, an Aries dog will act first, think later. They're the first to start a scrabble at the dog park but are just as quick to roll over and initiate a truce.
You can find them commanding a pack of puppy pals or ruling your house as king or queen of the coop. Make sure your Aries dog gets lots of exercise and freedom, and they'll repay you in love and loyalty for a lifetime.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The Taurus dog gets a bad rep for being stubborn AF. However, once you've earned their trust, they'll be your companion forever. The Taurus dog does their best to please and is a hard worker, no matter the job.
On any given day, they'll be curled up in their favorite dog bed, waiting patiently for pets. Just don't try to take their ball away mid-play. They'll make it their mission to get it back at any cost.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini pups are expressive and outgoing, greeting every human and dog they see with enthusiasm and charm. To their owners' dismay, they may periodically flex their mischievous side but always come back for forgiveness and cuddles.
Vocal and cute as a button, a Gemini will demand your attention if it's not freely given. One thing's for sure, there's never a dull moment with these summer dogs in your life.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The Cancer dog is frequently described as a sensitive soul. Emotional and intuitive, they can read their owners' moods like a book and are quick to respond and comfort. They can be clingy and often want to be near their people at all times.
Despite these attachment issues, they're independent thinkers who use their intuition to figure out how to earn and keep their good boi/girl status.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
As their sign implies, Leo dogs are the big dogs of the jungle: powerful, attention-loving, and charming. They use their magnetic personalities and warmth to keep both owners and their guests entertained.
With a knack for bringing others together, a Leo pup will make their rounds and introduce everyone at the dog park with ease. Just don't make them compete for your attention - Leo needs to be the top dog in your life.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Neat, curious, and analytical. If your dog is a Virgo, you'll know what we're talking about. The Virgo pup meticulously cleans themselves after any outdoor adventure.
They like their space free of clutter and may "talk back" if pushed. But look past their quirky exterior, and you'll find a dedicated soul. Highly protective of their pack? Absolutely. Better yet, they will do anything to please!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
The Libra dog is all about balance and harmony. These pups are equally likely to enjoy a long hike or romp outside as they are to be couch potatoes. They dislike conflict and may attempt to break any tension between owners by showing off their goofy personalities.
Cuddles are a must for the Libra dog. They can be cautious and may need encouragement before they feel confident exploring their surroundings or trying a new toy. The Libra pup will feel secure enough to do it all with a loving owner by their side!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpios often get a bad rep, but look past their tough exteriors, and you'll find a loyal and passionate pup. Often considered "single-owner dogs", this means that the Scorpio is a ride-or-die companion as soon as they attach to their human.
Life with these dogs is never boring. They'll keep you guessing, no matter the circumstance. Don't be shocked to find them hiding in a corner, sharply observing the mood of the room before they come out to socialize.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius dogs will say we saved the best for last. The jesters of the zodiac, you won't find a more entertaining companion. They're naturally social and thrive being the center of attention.
Adventurous by nature, they love exploring the world and make great travel companions. Keep their routine interesting and your Sag pup will remain devoted for life.
