Capricorn Dog (December 22 – January 19): The Polite One

Capricorn Dog (December 22 – January 19): The Polite One

Canines born under this sign have great dignity, poise and self-possession. Even when they are puppies, they act much older than their age and need very little training or guidance. It seems that they were born knowing and they only get better with age. An earth sign, Capricorns are healthy and among the most long-lived members of the zodiac.

An "A" in Citizenship

These canines are very well-behaved and would never tear through the house or dog-handle your best boots to get your attention. They thrive on discipline and have a great need for order. If their pet parents don't set boundaries it upsets them. But feed them at the same time every day and take them on their walks precisely at 8 a.m. and they will feel happy and secure. A Capricorn dog is at her best when she feels safe.

While not outwardly affectionate and a little reserved, Capricorn pooches do feel deeply. They usually bond with a single person and are loath to leave her side, content to spend the night lying at their pet parent's feet while watching movies on AMC (Capricorns like old classics in everything), nibbling on treats and cheese popcorn.

Working Out

Born under the planet Saturn, ruler of hard work and accomplishment, these highly intelligent dogs are at their best when they feel they have a "job." Whether that's bringing in the mail, watching over their human siblings while they play in the backyard or being a therapy dog in a children's ward, they feel a deep sense of satisfaction in a job well done.

The best parents for Capricorn canines are Virgos, who appreciate their need for discipline, or a Taurus, who doesn't need showy affection and is equally self-directed.

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.
