Leo Dog (July 23 – August 22): The Alpha Dog
LEO DOG PERSONALITY: THE FEARLESS PROTECTORS
Leos dogs love their humans and they will go to remarkable lengths to safeguard their caretakers. When you hear stories about canines dragging their owners out of a burning building or awakening them when they detect a gas leak or an intruder, it's usually the work of a Leo dog.
They are fearless, brave and believe it is their job to protect you. But the deed alone is not a just reward for a Leo dog; they love to be praised lavishly and would not say no to those gold and purple medals for bravery, happily preening for photos wearing them.
If you’re searching for a companion for your pet, it’s important to understand what other zodiac signs are the most compatible. The Leo dog zodiac gets along best with the other fire signs, Aries and Sagittarius, as well as Aquarians, who won't be put off by their arrogant ways. But Gemini and Libra dogs are great matches to the boundless energy that some Leo dogs have. Any one of these dogs are great companion choices but, honestly, Leos doggies get along with just about every kind of dog.

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.
