Does your Dog's Star Sign Ring True?

The rise of Paw-strology: is it a true reflection of your dog's personality?

Astrology continues to rise in popularity across the globe, with over 79 billion collective views on TikTok hashtags relating to star signs, astrology and horoscopes. 

Astrology is often used to provide insights into an individual’s quirks, personality, behavioural traits and potential compatibility but the influence of the zodiac can also extend to our smallest family members. 

Whether you believe in the idea of horoscopes or not, understanding your pet’s zodiac sign is a fun way to discover more about your pet's personality and behaviours.

In 2023, Australians were expected to spend over $1.3 billion on their partners to celebrate Valentine's Day [1] and with over 76 per cent of us considering our pet as part of the family [2] Petstock Ambassador and Pet Behaviourist, Lara Shannon is encouraging pet parents to include your four-legged best friend in the festivities this year with gifts for your pets based on their unique personality traits.

Aries (March 21 - April 20):

Being the first sign of the zodiac, it’s no wonder Aries pets are natural leaders and exude alpha energy. Their curious nature brings out a playful energy with a desire for action and excitement. They are courageous adventure seekers that love exploring their surroundings and having activities that stimulate their minds. 

They thrive on being in charge, which may mean they lead the walks rather than the other way around, but their loyalty to their family and loving spirit is what brings them back and makes them the perfect match for adventurous owners.

Taurus (April 21 - May 20):

If continuous cuddles from your furry friend sounds like your perfect match, then you may find yourself with a Taurus. Being an earth sign, Taurus pets are grounded, patient and affectionate with a deep love of nature

They are also dependable, practical and hard working but at times can be a little stubborn and don’t particularly like change, they thrive on routine and comfort so appreciate exploring in a safe environment. They are extremely loyal and loving and will love nothing more than a night spent cuddled up with their owner with plenty of snacks and treats.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20):

Just like Gemini humans, Gemini pets are friendly, love to communicate and thrive in social situations

Their curiosity, playful personality and intelligence brings out an enthusiasm to try new things, and are always on the move searching for their next adventure. 

Being the sign of the twins, their interests and personality can change quickly from calm to full of energy that will be sure to keep you on your toes. You can trust that there will never be a dull moment with a Gemini pet.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22):

Our rescue Malinois Aramis and Porthos 
(birthday around July 13) are typical Cancers
Motivated by emotion, the Cancer sign is sensitive, empathetic and loyal

Cancer pets have a natural intuition that allows them to build a strong emotional connection with their owners and makes them a dependable best friend who is always up for a quiet and cosy cuddle

At times they can get a little overwhelmed by loud noises or over stimulating environments so thrive best in calm surroundings with the people they love. They are natural nurturers who are protective of their family.

Leo (July 23 - August 22):

Being the sign of the lion, it’s no surprise that Leo pets love being the centre of attention who were born to rule and shine. They are playful, charismatic and exude confidence that brings out a warm and powerful personality. 

Leo pets don’t like to compete for attention and thrive in a household that will shower them with love, praise and admiration. Their natural king and queen energy means they love to be treated like royalty, pampered and shown affection.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22):

Virgos pets are incredibly observant, detail oriented and intelligent. They love to feel accomplished, are hardworking and dedicated to impressing their owners. Similar to Gemini, Virgo pets know how to communicate to their owners and express their needs with their bark, facial expressions or their actions. 

They thrive in a structured environment and do best with a rigid daily routine. They are also extremely loyal and protective of their family, their attention to detail ensures nothing goes unnoticed making them great service animals.

Libra (September 23 - October 22):

Libra is the sign of the scales, their goal is to create harmony and balance. Libra pets are known for their companionship and dedication to their family. Ruled by the planet Venus, they have a natural desire to create a loving connection with other pets and humans and love to play and socialise

They thrive in environments that are calm and peaceful, rather than chaotic and action packed.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 22):

Scorpio pets are full of passion and curiosity, with an intuitive sense of knowing what you want and need before you even know. Similar to Scorpio humans, Scorpio pets are private and enjoy their alone time or time spent with their loved ones

They are often perceived as a mystery to those who don’t know them as it takes a while for them to build trust. However, when the trust has been built you can rest assured that you have a loyal and dedicated companion for life.

Sagittarius (November 23 - December 21):

Sagittarius is associated with adaptability and exploration, which perfectly reflects the signs symbol of the archer. 

Pets born under this sign have a desire for adventure and crave any opportunity to be outside to roam and discover new surroundings as they can feel anxious when kept inside. 
Their friendly and energetic personalities make them the perfect travel companions to create unforgettable memories with.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19):

Capricorn is an earth sign and one of the most grounded signs of the zodiac. Pets born under the Capricorn zodiac sign are calm, disciplined, reliable and hardworking

They’re eccentric and freedom-oriented and enjoy spending time on their own to explore the world around them and are always up for a challenge or puzzle that stimulates their minds.

While they are very independent, their desire for affection will always see them coming back to you for cuddles.
