Cancer Dog (June 21 – July 22): Home is Where the Bark is
Ruled by the moon, these dogs are sensitive, nurturing and intuitive. You almost feel like your Cancer dog can read your thoughts – and you'd be right! Attuned to human emotions and suffering, these dogs are good canine healers, either as guide dogs, care dogs for the elderly or as medical scent-detection dogs.
Cancer rules the stomach, and these doggies are often controlled by their appetites – both emotional and nutritional. Much like their human counterparts, they will overeat according to their mood and tend to gain weight. Give them a little extra love and attention if you see them spending too much time in the kitchen.
A Cancer pooch is the most forgiving of pets. Even if you've been held up at work and feed him a little later than usual, he won't hold it against you. Sure, he'll feel a little neglected, but will pad right back to you and look soulfully into your eyes, wondering how he can help you. They make fine companions for Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio and Taurus parents, but Cancer dogs tend to love universally.

What to Do Next with Your Dog Horoscope
Now you know which dog zodiac sign aligns with your canine companion. That means you can use your new astrological knowledge for some serious bonding! For example, if you have an Aries dog in your household, you can appeal to their energetic spirit by getting them out of the house more often – take them on challenging hikes or let them roughhouse at the dog park. Or, if you have a food-loving Cancer or Taurus dog, you can mix up their treat flavors and textures to make their tummies happy (just keep treating under 10% of their daily caloric intake to ensure they don’t get too thick around the middle).
But who are we kidding – no matter your dog’s sign, they all deserve tasty treats! And they all love eating them, too. You don’t need to chart the stars to figure that one out! Check out all the awesome treats the Milk-Bone® brand has to offer.
