This week I had one of those deep conversations. Do you know the ones where you start discussing life, the stars and the moon? One of those. Now I’m fascinated with things like astrology, and our conversation soon took a turn into dog star signs.
The more we started discussing human characteristics and star signs, we looked at Charlie and Minnie to see if their star signs were accurate too. Low and behold their dog star signs were very accurate! So today, we’ve been digging into the doggy zodiac.
Before we get started (and before my husband rolls his eyes again), this just a quick note to say that dog star signs are just for fun. Take it with a pinch of salt and look up to see if your dog’s personality matches with their sign!

The Capricorn Dog – The Busy Bees
December 22nd – January 20th
Capricorn is one of the most grounded dog star signs in the zodiac. Capricorn dogs beat to the rhythm of their own drum. They are active and athletic and love to run around for ages. These ambitious pooches are very intelligent, disciplined, dedicated, and hardworking – you’ll find them super easy to train.
They exude a sense of being in charge. If there’s other dog’s in the pack, they always aim to be the top dog and they will teach their wisdom to the other pets too. They know their place when it comes to their humans, and if they could salute you with their paws, they would. Though if you tell them off, you’re likely to get a ‘talk to the paw’ kind of vibe.
Capricorns are very methodical in their approach to things. They know that the more treats they get, the more they can stash away in case they’re really hungry. They’re also very inquisitive and enjoy peering out of windows – mostly waiting for order to return and for their human to come home.
The Aquarius Dog – Our Little Helpers
January 21st – February 19th
The humanitarian, is a dog star sign from the element of air. Aquarius dogs are highly intelligent, quirky and interesting. These dogs are bright, funny and very loving. These pooches have a thirst for knowledge and thrive during training.
You’ll often find they enjoy weird foods, love specific toys, have strange habits or enjoy unique activities. They’re very social and love other animals, but also independent needing time and space to recharge. These easy-going pooches enjoy going with the flow but can also be unpredictable, no doubt they’ve had you laughing at random moments.
The world is their oyster. There is a deep sense of wonder in all Aquarians, so loyal and focused when they have a job to do. They love to feel like they are helping and they would make great therapy or assistance dogs.
The Pisces Dog – Sensitive Souls
February 20th – March 20th
The Pisces pooch almost always has a sixth sense when it comes to the moods of humans and animals. You can stare into their soul while looking into their eyes and they can read your heart and mind by looking into yours.
Piscean pooches are extremely intuitive – they can sense your bad moods and will often try to cheer you up. They’ll also know when you’re about to take them for a walk before you’ve even said it. Pisces need to be near their humans at all times, so you are sure to have a shadow.
Pisces are introspective, so if your dog keeps to himself he may just be lost in thought in his inner world. They are very special, but sensitive souls, who feel things very deeply. If there is trouble brewing at home, take them for a walk to help them escape from the atmosphere.
These loveable pups will adopt almost anyone as a member of the pack – most likely to ask the burglar for a belly rub.
The Aries Dog – Action Pooch
March 21st – April 20th
The Aries pooch is fueled by passion, authority and pride. This active pooch loves to play and run around – it keeps them happy and out of trouble. Many Aries dogs tend to be accident-prone or run off without notice.

This sign can also be a little argumentative and stubborn at times. Usually they won’t take no for an answer. If you have a small Aries dog, you’ve probably noticed they have small dog syndrome. This sign is very firey and they totally dig an argument, either with you or a passing cat.

They’re fussy with food and tend to have that one special toy they don’t want to let go of. You may think at times they’re being lazy or even disobedient, but they are in fact very intelligent and prefer to just ‘go’ at their own pace.
